Purbeck Stone Cottage-Old Telephone Exchange w/Private Garden, Off Road Parking

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Nov-2016
Cottage in Corfe Castle, Nr. Wareham, Dorset, England - Excellent Location For Exploring Purbeck And Only A 10 Minute Drive To Amazing Beaches

3 bedrooms, sleeps 6, beautiful Purbeck stone cottage right on the main street of Corfe Castle. The building was originally the telephone exchange for the village and has been converted into a domestic dwelling, hence the name "The Old Telephone Exchange". The local pub is within 2 minutes walk and 5 minutes to the centre of Corfe and its main attractions, which include the Castle ruins, owned by the National Trust, Model village and train station where the Swanage Steam train runs 7 days a week. There are also cafe's, gift shops, bakery and small grocers store. The seaside town of Swanage is 5 miles away and the National Trust's Studland beach is also 5 miles away. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are just 15 minutes away by car. The main benefit of its location in the village is that is has off street parking for at least 2 vehicles. Residential parking in Corfe is at a premium, so this is a big bonus for this property.

About the Owner

I am a married mum of two teenagers, I work for my husband and our holiday home is our pride and joy. We have spent many holidays in Purbeck (Corfe Castle) and have saved like mad to be able to afford our own house down there which has been our dream for many years. To help with the up keep of the house, we have made the decision to rent our house for holiday lets. This then offers our guests the opportunity to enjoy the area as we have, whilst enjoying the comforts of a beautiful Purbeck stone cottage in the heart of Corfe Castle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our week at this cottage. Very clean and well equipped cottage. Spacious and well laid out. It is on the main road (most houses in Corfe castle are) but the bedrooms are at the rear which helps with the noise. Loads of games DVDs and toys to keep you entertained. There is a pub with good food nearby. Bakery in Corfe castle is very good. With small children, and decent weather, we spent most of our time at Corfe castle and Studland bay (15 min drive).

A very well equipped and nicely decorated holiday cottage in a great location on the edge of the village and in easy walking distance of the village shop, pubs and steam railway. Amanda - London

We had some friends with us who travelled from the Czech Republic. We had a great time travelling around showing them all the sights and were very comfortable in the evenings in the house.

Wow!! A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the cottage over new year and had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage has everything you need and we were so impressed by the amount of DVDs , games , toys etc that kept the children entertained the whole time. The cottage is so spacious, extremely clean, beds v comfortable and the cottage is v quiet so we slept really well. The cottage is within close walking distance to the village of Corfe castle which has lots of lovely pubs and afew restaurants , etc. We took the steam train to swanage , visited Corfe castle and went on afew walks which was lovely. You will certainly not be disappointed if you book here. We will be back v soon .
