  • “Fantastic place to visit, for two persons we were very pleased with the cottage, no issues, close to the village pubs, restaurants and Steam Railway to Swanage, will visit again and use the Farriers Lodge if available, great walks all close by.”

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.

About the location

Corfe Castle

Cove Castle is a firm favourite with locals, sitting along side the Rodwell trail area, Cove Castle Beach is usually uncrowded, and offers safe bathing from it’s gently sloping shoreline. There are two main beach areas, Cove Castle, awaiting new steps to the beach in early 2019, and Sandsfoot beach, both with soft golden sand and the vibe of the best kept secret. Sandsfoot castle is just two minutes’ walk from the beach where you will find castle ruins, pretty award-winning gardens and a small café, offering snacks, drinks and ice-creams. Accessed off Old Castle Road in Weymouth, this area is a real treat for those who want to be away from the buzz and bright lights of the traditional Weymouth Seafront, and yet close enough to venture there when they choose. When you are on the beach you could be forgiven for thinking you are miles from town, and yet you are only a 15-20 minute walk from the old Harbour and access to Weymouth town centre. If you want to know where the locals would recommend you spend your beach days, then Cove Castle and Sandsfoot beaches are it.

Note: max 4 people.

Note: please be aware that gardeners will be attending the property intermittently throughout the year for essential garden maintenance. They will require access through the property during this time.
