This traditionally-built detached Purbeck stone cottage enjoys a stunning location close to a historic Dorset village and makes a great base for a large family or group exploring the Purbeck Hills.

A dream home in the Purbeck Hills, this traditional stone cottage is surrounded by extensive, rambling grounds, and is situated just a mile from the historic village of Corfe Castle. It lies between the stunning countryside of the Studland and Hartland National Nature Reserves.

Enter into the cottage to find the lounge areas, a cosy space with two sitting areas, one for snuggling up by the wood burner and the other for chilling beside the TV. Period details like exposed beams, a feature fireplace, and flagstone flooring add an atmosphere of age and elegance to the room. Head through into the heart of the property, the orangery, a dining and living space that has been beautifully designed to bring all the light of the outdoors in. With a large family table and snug sofas, this is the perfect room to enjoy the inspiring views of the Purbeck Hills or head out through the French doors to the patio — if the weather's fine, take your dinner alfresco. The kitchen offers yet another place to eat together, with a handy corner table and range oven for creating hearty meals for the team. Head through to the first bedroom on the ground floor, with a double that can be made into a twin on request, a shower room, and lovely French doors leading out to a private patio. Upstairs, the delightful bedrooms continue, including a double with feature Victorian fireplace and stunning en-suite, and up on the second floor, a galleried double room, with vaulted ceiling and amazing views of the surrounding hills. The grounds of this picture-perfect house are just as glorious as the rooms, with a mature, flower-filled garden, lawns perfect for playing games, and a BBQ and eating area. Plus, extra treats for younger guests include a Wendy house and trampoline secreted away at the end of the garden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Greensands is a beautifully presented cottage, very well equipped with lovely gardens in which to relax. It is a mile outside Corfe Castle, but the footpath over the fields is a lovely way to walk into the village and enjoy its delights. The road to the cottage is single track but gets very little traffic. We needed a plumber to attend a minor probRead morelem and Holiday Cottages had the person out within 3 hours.

Cottage is ideally situated for walks, just over a mile into Corfe or less to get up onto the ridge walk. The garden is large and well kept.

This was a perfect house for family party which ranged from 93 year old to 8 months. Space for everyone and idyllic setting. Excellent response from owners on minor requests.
