The driveway leading to the parking area is quite narrow, so if you have a particularly large vehicle, please contact us to enquire of the suitability.
This is a wonderful walking area where you can walk directly from the house to a number of footpaths. It is a short walk to the Church, where there is an easily accessible footpath, either up to the Purbeck ridge, providing a stunning walk with sea views, or on to the lower ridge path. Both these footpaths provide wonderful walks to the picturesque village of Corfe Castle and take approximately 20 minutes. There are many other attractions close by, including Kimmeridge bay perfect to explore and spend time rock pooling, looking for fascinating creatures; Studland ideal for relaxing on the fantastic sandy beaches, and Swanage where you can enjoy a bite to eat, and amble around the shops and amusements.

Fab house in a great spot for the perfect family holiday. Everything was provided and we had a lovely week in this beautiful holiday home where we felt very welcome. The gardens are lovely, ideal for the kids to play and the door from the kitchen leads out to the patio which was great for the BBQ. Will definitely book again.
We only have positive things to say about the property and also Corfe and Purbeck holidays. Church Cottage seems to have been recently renovated and to a very high standard but the work is still in keeping with the cottage feel. The location is stunning and served as a fantastic base for our week and would highly recommend it to anyone. It was perfect for our week in Dorset.
We had a great stay at Church Cottage - excellent location, very clean, lovely gardens and very well equipped - thank you!
A lovely, peaceful cottage, really nicely decorated and with spectacular views in all directions. It had everything we needed including a really juicy selection of books and games and measuring scales in the kitchen! A great location with fabulous walks right behind the house and really close to Studland, Swanage and Corfe.
