Corfe Castle, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, England
Wissett Cottage is the quintessential, traditional Dorset stone cottage. Steeped in period character such as exposed stonework, ancient timbers and a partly thatched roof, this 300 year old cottage provides a cosy and welcoming 'home away from home' that combines rustic charm with comfortable furnishings and modern day conveniences.

Lying within an 'arrow's flight' of the historic ruins of Corfe Castle, Wissett Cottage is conveniently situated close to all village amenities such as the convenience store, post office, bakery and excellent local pubs. A short, 5 minute stroll will take you to Corfe Castle station from where you can board one of the vintage steam trains operating on the famous Swanage Steam Railway.

We have stayed in Corfe Castle previously and really enjoyed it as a destination. The Isle of Purbeck has so many things to do and staying right next to the Steam rail makes for some excellent days out. Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge, Studland Becah, Brownsea Island, Swanage and Wareham - these is by no means a comprehensive list of places to...

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Purbeck is a part of Dorset which roughly encompasses the area east of Lulworth Cove to Shell Bay, at the mouth of Poole harbour, to the small market town of Wareham at the northern reaches of Poole harbour. The beauty of this world-renowned coast line is unsurpassed and vistors who venture a short distance inland will be enthralled by what the Isle of Purbeck has to offer them. Dominated by the majestic Purbeck Hills, its gently rolling landscape has provided shelter and sustenance for mankind over thousands of years. Today, this beautiful area is dotted with quaint villages comprising cottages built from the locally quarried Purbeck limestone, giving them their unique character and charm.<BR> <BR>The village of Corfe Castle, named after the ruined fortress which s... more

Of course, our magnificent scenery is, for many, best enjoyed on foot. A plethora of superb walks within the Purbeck Hills and to the world-renowned 'Jurassic Coast' can be accessed directly from Wissett Cottage. Maps and guides are available for your perusal during your stay.
