    “Property was well equipped, clean and very well located.”

    We especially liked the garden which was bigger than expected.

The property

Farrier's Lodge, previously the village blacksmith's cottage with the workshop next door, situated in the heart of Corfe Castle, a charming traditional Dorset village. It is a lovely, thatched, cosy retreat sleeping up to four people, located just a stone's throw from the village square. This stylish cottage is decorated and furnished with a contemporary palette of calming grey and navy.

A very comfortable cottage - excellent bedrooms and cosy beds.

Relax in the sitting room on the sofas – watch TV or read a book.

Well-equipped kitchen with quality appliances to prepare meals. Step outside to the garden straight through the twin bedroom and enjoy an afternoon playing games or just have a picnic.

The garden is beautiful and well kept, gardeners attending the property intermittently throughout the year for essential garden maintenance. Farrier's Lodge is the ideal base to explore the Purbecks.

A walker's delight with an abundance of walks right on its doorstep. The iconic medieval Corfe Castle ruins and the steam railway are just a short walk away.

There are medieval activities made for children to enjoy a good time whilst exploring the castle, and a tea shop nearby for refreshments.

A short drive away from the village is Studland Bay, a glorious slice of the Purbeck coastline with a 3 mile stretch of golden sandy beach, a reserve for sea horses and other rare marine species. Just a few miles away is the popular resort of Swanage with its array of shops and award winning golden sanded beach.

Swanage boasts a variety of cuisines but do try a Dorset cream tea and other local produce, especially freshly caught fish. This cosy and beautiful cottage in Corfe Castle is a wonderful base to explore Purbecks and further.

Corfe Castle is a historic village and civil parish in the English county of Dorset, dominated by its National Trust owned ruined castle of the same name. Overlooking the Purbeck Hills on the route between Wareham and Swanage, the village boasts beautiful scenery as well as easy access to the surrounding excitement of both coast and countryside. Including sections of the Jurassic Coast, this location is perfect for those seeking outdoor exploration, with wonderful walking routes, scenic seascapes, and both the Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve and Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve being within easy reach. The village is home to a good range of amenities, including a village shop, gift shop, Post Office, a selection of pubs and restaurants, while its best attractions are the Model Village & Gardens, Purbeck Mineral & Mining Museum, Dorset Adventure Park, the Boilerhouse Gallery, and of course, Corfe Castle itself, boasting 1,000 years of history. The Purbeck Big Apple Maize Maze also lies within easy reach for those seeking a fun-filled day out as a family, while the coastal town of Swanage is well-worth the venture to discover its Blue Flag and Seaside Award winning beach, with ample opportunities for coasteering, abseiling, climbing, paddle-boarding and kayaking, while the bay offers scuba diving for those seeking to try out something new. Discover the Swanage Railway, Durlston Castle and Country Park, the Swanage Museum and plenty of shops and eateries to choose from, or venture further afield to find both Bournemouth and Weymouth hosting even more fantastic attractions to suit all ages.
