Jiggers is a superbly presented three bedroom Grade II listed cottage, centrally located, very close to Corfe Castle and the picturesque village square with its selection of shops, pubs, tea rooms and the Swanage Steam Railway.
Jiggers was built in the 1680s from the ruins of Corfe Castle. It is one of the earliest cottages to have been built on West Street. Originally the Purbeck stone outbuilding in the garden was the Blacksmiths and the front room of the cottage was the stables where the animals were kept overnight. The hooks in the lounge ceiling historically were used to hang the straw and hay bales for the animals to feed.
Jiggers was extended in the early 1970s to create a country cottage kitchen/dining room which has recently been updated and modified with modern appliances.
The front door opens into a large hallway which has an exposed Purbeck stone wall with an oak coat and hat rack, which is a perfect place for leaving coats, muddy boots or sandy flip flops, after that amazing day out. There are doors leading in to the sitting room, up to the bedrooms and out to the rear garden. The inviting sitting room is surprisingly spacious and tastefully furnished, with comfortable sofas, a Smart TV with Freeview, a DVD player and a large docking speaker, it provides a relaxing and cosy atmosphere. From the sitting room there is a door to a cloakroom with W.C. and wash hand basin and a door leads into the well-equipped, newly fitted kitchen/dining room. With a range of units, dishwasher, gas double oven with integrated grill and gas hob, large fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine and a large farmhouse style oak dining table with 6 chairs and a beautiful welsh dresser. This room is delightful and light with a door and windows overlooking the wonderful garden.
Upstairs, the delightful main bedroom is bright with lovely views out to the rear garden. It has a king size bed, dressing table, fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower cubicle with overhead diverter shower, wash hand basin and W.C..
The equally attractive second bedroom has a king size brass Vispring bed and fitted wardrobes and the appealing third bedroom has twin beds.
The main bathroom has a bath, W.C. and wash hand basin. The bath has a shower mixer tap.
From the kitchen and hallway, doors lead out to the wonderful, well established, secluded and peaceful garden perfect for all seasons. Offering a high degree of privacy, you step out from the kitchen’s French doors onto the flagstone patio where you can enjoy a peaceful breakfast or sit and relax after an adventurous day exploring the beautiful area. Search for hidden artefacts as you wander up the sweeping curved Purbeck stone steps to the tranquil lawn area, where you can catch the sun all day long in the summer months and have a lovely view of the historic church.
For those steam train enthusiasts, the distant sound of the whistle of the steam train will transport our guests back to the “good ol days of steam” adding a nostalgic feel to your stay.
