Rent band: Q
Corfe Castle is one of the most beautiful and
unspoilt villages in Dorset, at the heart of the Isle of Purbeck in
an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The stunning ruins of the
castle overlook the village and surrounding countryside, most of
which is protected by the National Trust. Westcott is a wonderful
16th century detached cottage, situated in West Street, a cul-de-sac
and one of Corfe's most picturesque and desirable locations.
Beautifully renovated, the cottage retains an immense charm with the
original beams, deep sills, leaded windows, flagstone floors and
characteristic Purbeck stone tile roof. Inside, the traditional
features blend wonderfully with the contemporary design. The open
plan living area has flagstone floors with rugs, an inglenook
fireplace with bread oven, large comfy sofas and a dining table with
leather chairs. The quality of furnishings is exceptional
throughout, with mosaic copper slate tiles in the shower room, a
roll-top bath and tumbled-marble tiling in the bathroom. The
beautiful bespoke Shaker kitchen has Purbeck stone flooring and
opens onto the patio and garden. Upstairs, the attractive bedrooms
have traditional low doorways; bedroom 4 has sloping ceilings and is
most suitable for a child. The fully enclosed garden has a slide,
wooden play tower and views to the castle. Corfe Castle has a
village shop, baker, Post Office and four pubs serving a wide range
of food and drinks.
