Chaffeys is a charming character cottage, which is located a few moments walk to Corfe Common, the start of many of the best walks in the area, and yet only 5 to 10 minutes walk to the delightful village square , with its selection of shops and the iconic castle.
The front door opens into an inner porch, which is a useful area to leave your coats and boots. The inner door leads into the cosy open plan sitting/dining room, which is pleasantly furnished, and has a very fine inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, perfect for those colder evenings. A door from the sitting room leads into is a comprehensively equipped galley style kitchen with windows overlooking the delightful garden. Beyond the kitchen, the hallway area has doors leading to the garden, or to a spacious ground floor twin bedroom, which has a shower room with a walk in shower enclosure, basin and W.C.. Between the shower room and bedroom is an area which has a washing machine and tumble dryer.
From the sitting room, narrow winding stairs lead up to the spacious main bedroom which has a double bed and the third bedroom, which has full size bunk beds suitable for children or large teenagers.
Also upstairs is a spacious bathroom which has a bath, basin and W.C.
The door from the kitchen leads into a beautiful, fully enclosed garden, with good quality garden furniture which provides the perfect place for relaxing after enjoying the day exploring this stunning part of Dorset.
Chaffeys is a charming property, in a peaceful location in West Street, Corfe. It provides a perfect base, relaxing in the garden during the summer months and sitting in the comfortable lounge in front of the cosy log burner in the winter months.
Chaffeys has some low ceilings, beams, doorways and twisty stairs which add to the atmosphere of a typical older style cottage.

We booked for a week just before Christmas as it was on our list to visit Corfe when the build up of the festivities was going on! Firstly the booking was so easy and Tracy in the office was very helpful. We arrived on a snowy icy Saturday and not only was the cottage decorated for Christmas, the central heating and the wood burner made everything warm and cosy in no time. We used the downstairs bedroom which was the twin room and the beds were exceedingly comfortable. Our pooch enjoyed the common for walks and also enjoyed going to the marvelous pubs in the evening, especially the greyhound (so did we!). The locals are so friendly and helpful and the local shops provided excellent shopping. We can heartily recommend Chaffeys for a comfortable base for your Purbeck holiday. We have already booked Chaffeys for two weeks in the summer and cannot wait.
We were super impressed with the service from Corfe and Purbeck Holidays. Chaffeys cottage was lovely and very clean on our arrival, and the staff were very helpful too. We would definitely recommend this company and the cottage.
Chaffeys Cottage has the best combination of a downstairs twin room which my daughter and a friend usually use with the shower opposite and a very useful and fast washing machine and tumble dryer so we always return home with zero washing, pack light as we can wash as we go and it is ideal for keeping our towels throughout the week. The upstairs double and bunk and family bathroom are again very comfortable and perfect for our young twins and us. Our twin boys love the bunk beds which are for children i would say but could i think sleep adults too - the ceilings are quirkily low so mind your heads if over 5 foot high on going up the stairs but tbh this is part of the cottages charm! Ample Towels are provided as are the essential items like dishwasher tablets, coffee tea welcome tray and luxury biscuits, milk, washing up liquid and even a disinfectant spray all very much appreciated in these times. With roaring log burner, TV DVDS really pretty and large Garden, comfy sofas full size dining table - and we are allowed to take our dogs too! Whilst shooting myself in the foot, as Chaffeys is usually booked so we have to be keen off the block to repeat book each year - I would recommend this as the best cottage to rent in Corfe Castle (in my opinion) in the quiet West Street and a short scoot, amble or cycle to the village square. We are already on the waiting list for a second visit this year!
We found Chaffey’s Cottage to be cosy, comfortable and well located. The property was beautifully clean and well provided with equipment.
Thank you so much for another lovely stay - the children have been going so many years now I think they presume we own it! We loved it as usual, what has been done to the garden is a huge improvement. Thank you again we will be back to book again next year.
