Quiet, comfortable and convenient for exploring the surrounding area.
Comfortable holiday annexe with lovely view.
We enjoyed our week in this clean and comfortable holiday annexe. It was very rural and peaceful. As there are only two rings on the cooker , self catering is fine for a week , but may be a bit more difficult for a fortnight! The site was steep, but the view from the living room was lovely.
There were many places of interest to visit locally especially Compton Acres (taking the route over the chain ferry), Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy.
It was an easy journey to beaches.
Special interest holidays:
We have close links to the nearby Olive Tree Cookery School, where you can attend one day, or longer, cookery courses in anything from Sicilian Cooking to mushroom foraging to cupcakes to Summer Desserts etc. For an extra treat, you can purchase a delicious and beautifully presented picnic hamper for you to enjoy perhaps in the annexe, in the garden, on the decking, out in the stunning Purbeck countrysie or even on one of the many nearby beaches. The Olive Tree Cookery School have their own website with further details.
