Church Cottage is a superbly presented four-bedroom semi-detached character cottage, nestling in the countryside, in the pretty village of Church Knowle, with its traditional, friendly village inn, historic church and within easy reach of some of the most beautiful scenery and historic sites the area has to offer.
This wonderful property is reached via a sweeping driveway and a Purbeck flagstone pathway and it is set within fabulous gardens.
The front door opens into a fantastic farmhouse style kitchen, with a feature Purbeck stone wall and doors and windows providing ample light. There is a large dining table with benches and chairs, comfortably seating 8 and the kitchen is well equipped, with a double electric cooker, with integrated grill and halogen hob. There is an integrated fridge and dishwasher, a classic Belfast sink and plenty of workspace to whip up a family feast. If you continue through the kitchen, you will find a cloakroom and utility area. In this large area is a fridge, freezer, microwave and washing machine. There is also a shower, hand basin and WC and a door leading out to the beautiful rear garden. Adjacent to this cloakroom area is a delightful double bedroom, with beautiful views out to the garden. This unit is on the ground floor and provides a separate self-contained unit for parents or grandparents to have some space.
Also leading off the kitchen is the superb sitting room, with comfortable seating and a stunning wood burner, providing a perfect, cosy room for relaxing after a busy day discovering this wonderful location.
From the sitting room, the staircase leads up to three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The pretty double bedroom has double aspect windows, offering beautiful views over the garden and picturesque hills beyond. There is a spacious twin bedroom and a bunk bedroom with full size bunk beds. The family bathroom has a bath, with built in shower over the bath and a wash basin and WC.
The exceptional gardens provide ample space to peacefully sit a relax, dine at the table and chairs on either the front or rear patios or let the children play hide and seek, out of the way, on the large lawned area.
Only a short walk from the cottage, is the historic church. To the side of the church there is a easily accessible path, which provides a wonderful walk, either up on to the Purbeck ridge footpath with views to the sea or the lower ridge footpath. Both these walks are about a mile long and provide roughly a 20-minute stroll to the village of Corfe Castle. There are also many other stunning walks from the cottage to the villages of Kingston, Kimmeridge and even Swanage, if you’re feeling very adventurous.

Guests may also enjoy just unwinding in the sitting room in front of the cosy wood burner, this is a splendid property for a holiday, any time of the year.

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.
