“Beautiful spacious thatched cottage”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a beautiful , comfortable and spacious thatched cottage , very well equipped , light and airy in the centre of Corfe Castle . The kingsize double bed is more comfortable than our bed at home ! Good wi-fi, TV and DVD player . One of the best holiday rentals we've stayed in.

“Exceptional cottage in beautiful village”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A beautiful old cottage in the heart of Corfe village. 2 minutes walk to the castle and to the shops in the village, On the Isle of Purbeck close to the steam railway operating to Swanage.
Tempting to revisit in 2015 but appears to be fully booked till 2016, need I say more !!
If you wish to eat out 2 doors down the road with excellent pub food is the Castle Inn and 2 doors towards Corfe village is the Morton House hotel with more traditional dining and both very acceptable.

“Beautiful cottage, magical village”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband and I are keen photographers, so we were looking for somewhere close to Corfe Castle, so we might get shots of the ruins in different light without having to get in the car.
Wissett Cottage was in the perfect location for this! The cottage itself is beautiful and spotlessly clean. It has everything you could ever want during your stay. All you need to do is step out the front door and head down the main road to get an incredible view of Corfe Castle.
I am very fussy about cleanliness when I stay in self catering cottages... and this one could pass the 'white glove' test!
Kate's communication throughout the entire process was fabulous!
This was a perfect holiday, in a beautiful cottage and a magical village! Thank you Kate!
