Folly Cottage is a delightful, surprisingly spacious terraced cottage in the heart of the village of Corfe Castle, with easy access to the picturesque village square, Swanage Steam Railway and many outstanding walks.
On the ground floor, a small porch leads into a large bright open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting room with a solid wood floor. At one end there is a comfortable modern three-piece suite, colour TV and DVD player, perfect for a relaxing evening in front of the cosy wood burning stone. In the middle is the dining area, with a side unit, offering a good selection of books and then a well-equipped kitchen area. This large open plan room, provides a perfect social space, to prepare a delicious meal, dine around the table and then relax on the sofas.
From this room, a generous staircase leads to the first floor where there are two bedrooms. The pretty master bedroom has a double bed and en-suite shower room with built in shower, hand basin and W.C. There is a colour TV and a large window overlooking the garden with a superb view of Corfe Castle. The attractive second bedroom has twin beds and a Truckle bed, suitable for a small child, and has fine views of the Purbeck Hills. Either bedroom has space for a cot. The delightful family bathroom has a freestanding roll top bath, W.C. and basin.
A stable style door opens from the kitchen to an enclosed garden. There are a few steps leading up to the lawn area where there is garden furniture and a barbecue.
Folly Cottage is a splendid, well presented, fully equipped holiday cottage which provides excellent home from home accommodation, in this fantastic part of Dorset. It is approximately 10 minutes drive to Studland Beach or Swanage. It is close to the road, but thick walls and double-glazing reduce traffic noise to a level which most people will find acceptable.

A great cottage with a lovely location and garden overlooking the castle. There is no parking outside so be prepared to bring your bags a 10 min walk from the nearest car park but it didn’t prove a problem for us and nor did the proximity of the road. A lovely and well looked after cottage in a beautiful and friendly village. The Fox & Bankes are best for food as is The Pink Goat and the model village cafe. Don’t miss a trip on the steam train to Swanage either! Everything was great about the cottage.
Folly Cottage is the perfect get away cottage! It’s wonderfully located for dog walking, sight seeing and with a good choice of local pubs. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and has everything that is needed, even for dogs! We love it there, and so much so we have been returning at least twice a year for the past 4 or 5 years. It’s a gem! Corfe & Purbeck Holidays also make everything so simple and are a pleasure to deal with.
Folly Cottage is a well-equipped comfortable cottage. The location is just right for exploring Corfe Castle and the surrounding area. There was plenty of room for 4 adults and lots of quirky details and a sunny garden.
I would definitely recommend this cottage for a visit to corfe castle and the surrounding area. The cottage is actually much nicer than it looks in the pictures and felt very homely. The beds are super comfy. The castle literally backs on to the garden and can be seen from the double bedroom window. Although its on the main road, noise from cars did not affect us at all. The ONLY down side is that there is not parking at the house, but I think its worth it for the fantastic location. You can park easily in the village square to unload/load the car and then the car park which you will have a permit for is just a short walk away. The village itself is so picturesque. Would also recommend The pink goat for breakfast/lunch and we had a lovely dinner at the greyhound too. And there is so much to do in the surrounding area. Thanks for a lovely stay.
We booked a last minute stay at Folly Cottage in September and had a wonderful time. The location is amazing – right in the middle of Corfe Castle village – and the cottage was spacious but cosy and very well equipped for a week’s stay. Booking was easy and communication excellent. I would highly recommend!
I am pleased to tell you that my husband found Folly Cottage to be very comfortable and ideally situated for accessing Corfe Castle for photographing.
We absolutely loved the cottage, so much more spacious than we thought and everything we needed for the dog which I didn't realise. I packed throws etc but the blankets which were provided were great, never had those provided at previous holidays! Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and very homely. We loved it.
We had a fabulous week thanks, and the cottage was lovely
