With far-reaching views over the Purbeck Hills and its proximity to the isle’s sandy beaches, this stunning 1700-dated stone property fuses coast and county for a truly tranquil break. It’s close to all the village amenities, as well as the majestic ruins of Corfe Castle itself. Part of the Jurassic Coast, the area is famed for its walking trails, which from here stretch to the coastal villages of Studland and Lulworth, and up to the hilltop villages of Kingston and Worth Matravers. Dolphins and seals can often be seen off the coast at Durlston, and there are good facilities for bird watchers at the Arne Nature Reserve. The sandy beaches at Studland and Swanage are just a short drive away.
This detached property offers light and airy accommodation throughout, with many traditional features retained, including gorgeous wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace in the lounge, which contains a wood burner. The kitchen is equipped with an electric cooker and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, and two fridge/freezers, and you’ll find the washing machine in the adjoining utility room, which also has a cloakroom with WC. Enjoy your evening meal or a delicious breakfast in the dining room, which has a large table and chairs that comfortably seat eight, as well as a feature fireplace. Relax here on the comfortable sofas in front of the TV/DVD or perhaps while reading the latest bestseller. There’s also a snooker table for you to enjoy during your stay. From here, French doors open into a large conservatory, which offers another living area with comfortable seating and lush garden views. All four bedrooms can be found upstairs. At one end of the property is a spacious twin room with antique French beds, and a double bedroom with garden views. This is a zip-and-link king-size bed, which can be made as another twin on request. These rooms have shared use of a shower room with WC. At the opposite end of the house are two double bedrooms, both with king-size beds and garden views. One has a large en-suite shower room with WC, and the other is adjacent to a bathroom which has a shower over the bath, and a WC.
Enjoy the large enclosed garden, which includes a patio area and large lawn. Sit and take in the stunning views to the downs, or perhaps enjoy an al fresco dinner. Parking is available for three cars - one in the garage and two in the rear garden. Larger cars will need to park in a side road, a short walk from the property.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
