This is an extremely spacious, comfortable and homely cottage which is well situated in Corfe Castle. It was spotlessly clean throughout. The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds extremely comfortable. The garden is pleasant to sit in and very relaxing. The fresh flowers and lemon cake made for a wonderful arrival. Corfe and Purbeck Holidays could not have been more friendly and efficient; we shall certainly book through them again.
We had a wonderful stay at Cobblers Cottage over Christmas. The cottage being especially well suited to the three generations of our family. I had brought a few extra bits of kitchen equipment as I was going to be cooking Christmas lunch, but I really needn’t have worried as it was so well equipped. The bedrooms were cosy and comfortable and the bathrooms were immaculately clean. We didn’t make use of the pretty garden as it was cold but enjoyed watching the birds visit the bird feeders. Prosecco and mince pies greeted us on our arrival along with some treats for the dog, who sadly couldn’t join us as his owners had just caught Covid. Perhaps we’ll all be able to come back in the summer.
We all found Cobblers Cottage to be a fantastic place to stay. The little touches e.g. the flowers and the lovely lemon cake made us feel very at home. So too did the dog treats, however our aging Yorkie Tilly has only 2 teeth left. Cobblers Cottage has everything and is very comfortable and ultra clean, and we lit the log burner a couple of times and that was quite a treat. A small walk from the Fox Inn which is highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again. The only thing that would put us off is the number of steps around the downstairs as Tilly can no longer manoeuvre steps. All in all a lovely stay in a perfect location. Thank you too to Corfe and Purbeck Holidays who are so helpful and respond to queries very quickly
I just wanted to say that we had an excellent week in Cobblers Cottage and thought that it was a delightful and well-equipped cottage. Corfe & Purbeck Holidays booking procedures were excellent and the information you provided to us in advance was very helpful. We hope to book again through you in the future.
Highly recommended for an extended family stay, comfortable, clean and perfect location. The spacious ground floor suite was ideal for my parents as it has its own sofa and TV, so they could escape when they wanted and it has access straight out to the garden, which is beautiful. We had a wonderful family holiday and hope to return again soon.
We stayed at Cobblers Cottage in Corfe Castle for 2 weeks. The cottage was second to none.... Couldn't fault it in anyway. Absolutely stunning, spotlessly clean and if you love your dogs like we do, the doggy welcome was fantastic! We have stayed in many cottages around the UK.... This was the best one yet. Excellent value for money and a prompt and professional service from Corfe and Purbeck Holidays throughout. Would highly recommend.
