A wonderful opportunity to live in this iconic village. Owners say, "We've loved it. It's been the perfect escape, and so easy having a lock-up-and-leave with no garden maintenance to worry about."
The Old Bakery sits on one of the most sought after roads in Corfe Castle. It is a very short walk to the square and the village's facilities. Corfe Castle village is a truly pretty village on the Isle of Purbeck, famous for the Castle ruins, heritage railway and steam train and Enid Blyton, whose Famous Five books were written about the area. There are wonderful tea rooms, a superb village shop, a very pretty Church, a village hall and several good public houses and restaurants. It is close to the sandy beaches of the seaside town of Swanage and the equally famous sands of Studland. The riverside market town of Wareham is just 10 miles where the mainline rail link takes 2 1/2 hours to London Waterloo.

This lovely cottage has been tenderly restored into a wonderful bolt-hole or investment. This superb cottage can be entered either from the front door and into the living area or via the back door and into a useful large VESTIBULE, very handy for removing coats and boots. This leads you into the rest of the ground floor living areas and, via the stairs to the first floor and bedroom accommodation. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has been thoughtfully refitted, with pretty shaker style units, integrated oven and electric hob and space for a washing machine and fridge. There is an attractive window seat and space for a small table and chairs. The SITTING/DINING ROOM runs the length of the cottage and has a wood burning stove at one end. Plenty of space for comfy sofas and a dining table and with large windows to the front, a lovely light space.
On the first floor are the 3 DOUBLE BEDROOMS all with lovely views through wide sash windows. The BATHROOM has a large walk-in shower, wash basin and WC.
Although there is no garden (perfect for a lock up and leave!) the cottage has direct access to the south west coastal path, stone's throw from all that the stunning village of Corfe Castle has to offer, historic castle ruins, miniature village, steam railway line, pubs, cafes, art galleries, restaurants, a wonderful local bakery and exceptional village store. Along with the castle is the historic St Edward's church. A well used village hall. All in all a lovely village to live in.
