About Brushwood Cottage

Brushwood Cottage is a chocolate-box thatched holiday cottage in the charming village of Corfe Castle near the Purbeck Hills in Dorset. The two-bedroom holiday home sleeps four people and is perfect for couples or families, with guests being within a short walk of the historic castle and shops, tea rooms, the train station (with a service from London Waterloo to Wareham where you can then get a cab or bus to the cottage), and friendly pubs like The Castle Inn. A gate at the bottom of the garden opens directly onto The Halves and Corfe Common. This is a fantastic area for walking, cycling and sightseeing, with lots to see and do in every season.

Corfe Castle village was named for the stone fortress that still stands sentinel above the community a thousand years after its construction. It is a welcoming place with an excellent variety of locally owned businesses, independent shops, and places to eat and drink. Although the castle is one of Dorset's favourite attractions, the village is not a tourist hotspot, and Brushwood Cottage guests can feel like they are part of village life, even if only for a few days. The castle is in the care of the National Trust. It has all of the romance and drama you'd expect from a medieval castle, including murder holes, arrow slits, and panoramic views that allowed soldiers to see enemies approaching.

The area outside of Corfe Castle is no less captivating. As part of the Isle of Purbeck, visitors can enjoy the glorious countryside and spectacular coastline. Walk along the South West Coast Path for beautiful views over the English Channel, or set off for a ramble through nature reserves, forests, heathland, and downs. Bird watchers flock to Brownsea Island, the RSPB Arne Nature Reserve, and Durleston Country Park. Spend lazy days on the beaches around Studland Bay, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Go fossil hunting, they are literally everywhere including in the Etches Collection - a modern fossil museum nearby at Kimmeridge Bay. Other attractions include Cloud's Hill, where Lawrence of Arabia lived, the Bovington Tank Museum, and the Enid Blyton Trail around some of the famous writer's favourite spots.

Brushwood Cottage welcomes guests all year round. Short breaks and longer stays are possible, depending on availability.
