Corfe Lodge is a great place for a family or group of eight to stay in the Dorset AONB because of its great location and easy access to local amenities.

Parking can be found in one of three off-road spaces, before unloading your bags and beginning your holiday.

The garden is a lovely spot for alfresco dining, with its dining table and parasol, along with views of the historic Corfe Castle.

After dinner, head to the sitting room to relax in front of the wood-burning stove on the plush sofas as you watch a family favourite on the TV.

On the ground-floor you will also find a well-appointed double bedroom, with use of the nearby cloakroom, perfect for those with limited mobility.

Make your way to the first floor, where you can relax in the bath or shower after a day of exploring the coast.

There are three more bedrooms on this floor: a king with its own en-suite shower, an double, and a twin with a TV, perfect for watching your favourite shows while you wake up slowly in the mornings.

The Bankes Arms and The Pink Goat are two great options for a night out with your loved ones when you fancy a night off from the kitchen!
