Situated in the popular Dorset village of Corfe Castle, on the Studland peninsula, close to the coast, this Grade II Listed picture-book cottage enjoys views of the spectacular National Trust castle across the road. Semi-detached Brook Cottage has a welcoming feel, a cosily furnished sitting/dining-room with heated Purbeck stone floors, exposed beams, a warming coal-effect gas stove, Smart TV and a substantial pine dining-table – a focal point for the family. The well-equipped kitchen has a large American-style fridge/freezer, a range cooker and a stable-door leads to the patio and lovely enclosed garden. The bedrooms are divided over two floors, accessed by the original turned staircases. The master bedroom is a particular treat with its luxurious en suite bathroom.
There are many beaches, cycle ways and spectacular walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, and the famous Swanage Steam Railway, which is great for travelling around this historic corner of Dorset, passes the large enclosed garden and patio – making Brook Cottage the perfect base from which to explore the stunning Studland peninsula. The National Trust's Brownsea Island is open most of the year, take a short boat trip and then enjoy peacocks, red squirrels and a wide variety of birds on the lagoon. The Jurassic Coast begins at Old Harry Rocks, a gentle stroll from the Bankes Arms, rewarded by a refreshing drink on your return trip, or visit Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door to see the most iconic features on the Jurassic Coast. The RSPB nature reserve at nearby Arne is a very tranquil place, with grazing deer and views across the back of Poole Harbour.
