Great location in the middle of Corfe Castle (but thankfully, not on the busy main street) was a tremendous success. Particularly enjoyed the lovely garden with its view to Corfe's ruined castle and the cottage itself a delight - very clean, well-appointed and welcoming and we would highly recommend it.
