Dr Ashdown June 2017
Beautiful house in fantastic location for exploring Purbeck, full of character but also very clean and well-appointed. Particularly stunning garden, great for train enthusiasts!
Mrs Bateman April 2017
We very much enjoyed our holiday in Brook Cottage and hope to return. It's a beautifully furnished and comfortable base from which to explore the Isle of Purbeck and very centrally located for the castle and village. It was lovely to have the garden to enjoy the early May sunshine and wave to the passing steam trains. Eating dinner each night overlooking the castle was a treat.
Miss Morris April 2017
Brook Cottage is beautifully clean and comfortable and decorated to a high standard. I was amazed at how well equipped the cottage is, all our needs were catered for. The garden is lovely too - sitting in the sunshine with a glass of bubbly waving to passengers on the steam train going by - it was like something out of the Railway Children. It really is a home from home. Absolute bliss and I will definitely be back :)
Mrs Parker April 2017
Exceptional cottage - really comfortable and warm. Great position in the centre of a buzzing village. All the fixtures, fittings and equipment was well considered to provide a luxury cottage holiday. Thank you
Mrs O'connor August 2016
Beautiful, cosy, comfortable cottage.
Mrs Hatt May 2016
Lovely warm atmosphere in the cottage, must be lovely in the winter, as well as the summer, as the garden is large and the outside sitting area great for train spotting. May need to invest in a new barbecue, but is nice that you offer this facility.
Ms Fowler April 2016
Exceptional historic cottage with wonderful garden, beautifully appointed rooms, lovely-to-cook-in kitchen and stunning view of Corfe Castle, especially magical at night. The steam train runs up on the bank of the garden, providing many a Railway Children moment. All rooms finished to high quality and all as comfortable and pretty as you would wish.
Mr James March 2016
If you're into castles and steam trains, or if not, this cottage is perfect!
Ms New December 2015

quality location and cottage.worth every penny.
Ms Clayton September 2015
Wonderful property that is obviously maintained and decorated to the highest standards. It was particularly nice to have a cottage that was so well equipped. Corfe Castle is a great village, we thoroughly enjoyed walks up on the hills, and especially waving at the steam train as it puffed past!

Mrs Desouza July 2015
Fantastic cottage in a great location with all the modcons you could expect and more.
Ms Inglis June 2015
We had a fantastic week at Brook cottage. A lovely cottage in a great setting with views of the castle.
Our children loved waving to the passing steam trains from the garden. The stairs are quite steep so if you have any small children you might find it useful to take a travel stair gate or, as we did, use a table to stop them climbing up the stairs. However, don't be put off from booking the cottage, we had no issues with our girls (1 and 3) in the cottage. The highchair doesn't have straps so you should take something to stop wriggly babies/children from jumping off! We used a Koo-di travel harness with the highchair.
Parking didn't cause any problems for us although we only had one car. We used one of the wheelie bins to keep the space in front of the house free for us.
Nearby beaches at Studland are fantastic with good facilities.
We'd definitely recommend the cottage... it was fab!

It really is one of the best places that you could wish to stay.We have visited Brook Cottage six times and we always find something new to do.
Mr Lindsay December 2014
This is a fabulous cottage, very well equipped in a brilliant location. Could not recommend this cottage more, we hope to return soon....
Mr Bowler October 2014
It is a lovely, spacious cottage with very comfortable furniture and quite homely. Excellent equipment in house and kitchen. Liked the utility room off kitchen with downstairs loo. The big plus was the steam trains at the back which we all loved.
Mr Lewis September 2014
If you are reading this and wondering whether or not to holiday at Brook Cottage, I suggest you stop reading and start booking. Perfect accommodation in the perfect location.....comfortable, spacious and wonderfully equipped. Parking is a little tight, but a small price to pay in order to stay. We'll be back.
Mrs Cardall September 2014
This cottage is in a truly beautiful setting and I can't recommend it enough for any train mad little boys (and Grandpas!)
Mrs Law August 2014
The cottage and location are wonderful. The added bonus of the steam train gave added excitement to our foster child. Brook Cottage could not be faulted, it is exceptional. The fixtures and fittings are beautiful. We had a wonderful holiday and would recommend Brook Cottage.
Dr Hook July 2014
An extremely well maintained,decorated and furnished cottage which was ideal for our family and the proximity to the Steam Railway was an added bonus, especially for grandchildren.
Ms Povall May 2014
A comfortable excellently equipped family home with the added bonus of a beautiful garden overlooked by an exciting steam train line. And peaceful because of thick walls which insulate against noise.
Mrs Dorricott April 2014
The cottage has all the reassuring, calming and charming qualities of the past combined with all the comfort, ease and amenities of the present. The garden is delightful, well maintained and perfect for outside eating. Having the exemplary steam railway at the end of the garden adds to the ambience and charm. The garden is full of birds and despite the main road at the front it feels tranquil and timeless. A very therapeutic and calming place to stay! It's great to recommend it but it's such a gem we don't want to lose our slot!!
Mr Oxford August 2013
A wonderful cottage in a fantastic area and with the steam train running at the bottom of the garden make the cottage unique and a real step back in time which both young children and parents will love. Purbeck is a fantastic area and one that we've been back to for many years. If the weather is good it beats any holiday in the Med. Parking for a single car was a little inconvenient but it wasn't an insurmountable issue.
