Riddles is an attractive 18th Century character cottage ideally situated in a quiet road, a short walk from the picturesque village square of Corfe Castle.
On the ground floor the delightful sitting room has comfortable seating and a wood burning stove, set in a splendid inglenook fireplace, which makes this cottage perfect for any time of the year. There is an attractively furnished dining room, with stairs leading to the bedrooms.
At the rear of the cottage is a well equipped kitchen, with a door leading out to a secluded garden. From the kitchen, there is also a door leading to the ground floor bathroom, which is well equipped, with a bath, overhead electric shower, basin and W.C.
The stairs from the Dining Room, lead up to the bright, spacious main bedroom, which has a double bed and the pleasant second bedroom which has full size bunk beds, suitable for children, big teenagers or even adults.
This character cottage is cosy and welcoming, and has some low ceilings and doorways. The stairs from the dining room to the bedrooms are typical of an older cottage and are steep, twisting, and with narrow steps in places.
The fully enclosed garden is accessed from the kitchen and has good quality garden furniture, which provides the perfect place for breakfast or for relaxing in the early evening sunshine. The garden has a delightful plum tree from where you can pick a selection of plums when they are in season to make a delicious crumble for dessert.
This is a charming, well appointed cottage, situated in the quietest part of the village of Corfe. There are some lovely country walks nearby and it is only 5-10 minutes’ walk to the village square with its shops, pubs, the castle and the steam train.

We thought it was good for two people. It is a good base to do plenty of local walks. There are some good pubs and restaurants nearby. A quiet location and a comfortable cottage.
It’s close to Corfe Common for those early morning dog walks with our Labrador & easy to walk to the local pubs for lunch/dinner & the train station to go to Swanage. A lovely quirky cottage – the stairs are a bit of a challenge so not for anyone with any mobility issues. Parking is a plus & we had lovely weather so used the garden a lot & wouldn’t hesitate to return.
I have been staying at Riddles Cottage for a number of years with my Old English Sheepdogs. The cottage is absolutely perfect, cosy and always very clean. Tracy and her team are always very welcoming and always very professional. I love the area and have made friends with the neighbours either side of the cottage, it's a real home from home and I would certainly recommend Corfe and Purbeck Hoildays wonderful friendly service nothing is to much trouble excellent good old fashioned customer service Thank You

We had a lovely stay at Riddles cottage. It was in a great location being close to all the areas we like to visit. It was nice to have use of the garden, especially as we had our dog with us, and also to be able to park right outside the property and off the road. The cottage was warm and cosy and nice to come back to, as it was quite cold some days. It was well equipped too, and comfortably furnished. we would happily book to stay at the cottage another time.
Thank you we had a very enjoyable time in Riddles Cottage. The cottage is ideally placed in the village, and we found it warm and comfortable in a week when the weather was not always favourable! We look forward to staying in this location again if the opportunity arises.
