A wonderfully secluded cottage set in the heart of the historic village of Corfe Castle. Once a chapel and then a reading rooms for the village it is believed to have been built in 1856 and converted into a dwelling at the turn of the 20th Century.
Pretty front doors open onto a light, spacious ENTRANCE HALL with tiled floor and views, through the garden room, out onto Halves Common and the hills beyond. To the right an opening leads into the stylish KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, again with tiled flooring and attractively fitted with shaker style wall and base units, marble and timber work tops, integrated dishwasher, electric cooker. There is an inset fireplace with multi-fuel stove. There are superb views across the common which you also have from the SITTING ROOM, a delightful space with a multi-fuel stove under a polished Purbeck stone mantle. The pretty GARDEN ROOM has the most stunning views across the common to the hills beyond and French doors to two sides opening onto little courtyard seating areas. From the entrance hall a small LOBBY/UTILITY with space and plumbling for a waashing machine, leads to a modern SHOWER ROOM with large shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.
From the entrance hall stairs rise to the FIRST FLOOR landing and bedroom accommodation. BEDROOMS 1 and 2 are generous sized double rooms with period fire places, simply stunning views and tasteful EN-SUITES, both with bathtub with Victorian style telephone hand showers, WC and wash hand basin. BEDROOM 3 is a good sized twin room, again with stunning views.
The property is approached through a doorway from East Street where a pathway leads to the cottage at the end, through a picket gate surrounded by hedging and climbing plants. The small GARDEN, is mostly paved with secluded seating areas and there is direct access onto Halves Common which two neighbouring cottages also have the right to use.
Delightfully tucked away and sitting on the edges of Halves Common in historic Corfe Castle, the cottage offers the feeling of seclusion yet within walking distance of all the village amenities, including village shop, good public houses, churches and schools. The village is one of the most attractive in Dorset and other attractions include a model village, the village museum, famous steam railway, and historic connections to Enid Blyton and the Famous Five! Corfe Castle is equidistant between the riverside market town of Wareham and the seaside town of Swanage.

The entrance to the property will be found on the right hand just past the village hall which is on the left hand side.
