Corfe Castle nestles in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck with perfect access to wonderful walks to the fantastic Jurassic Coast and along the beautiful downs. The picturesque village of Corfe Castle is renowned for its excellent restaurants, tea shops, old fashioned public houses, superb bakers and general stores. The glorious sandy beach of the small resort of Swanage is within easy driving distance, or you could make the journey via steam train. This is a wonderful walking area and you can walk directly from the house to join a network of footpaths which extend westwards towards Kimmeridge and Lulworth or eastwards to Studland, a pretty resort with miles of sandy beaches and dunes.
