“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed October 9, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This is the 5th time we have visited Wissett cottage and we have had a consistently good experience. The cottage is very picturesque, well equipped and located in the beautiful village of Corfe Castle. There are lots of places to visit in the area as well as many good pubs and restaurants.

“Yet another marvellous week!”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is our fourth stay at the gorgeous Wissett Cottage in the last two years and it was another lovely week with pretty good weather for late September! The cottage is so attractive and cosy, as soon as we arrive we feel perfectly "at home". The owners Kate and Chris make sure everything is just perfect, even to leaving a bottle of wine to welcome guests! We love the village of Corfe Castle and indeed the Purbeck area as a whole. So much is close to hand, lovely sandy beaches, beautiful countryside plus the attractions of Poole harbour and Bournemouth being easily accessible. We also love the steam railway!

“A most beautiful and well equipped cottage”
Reviewed September 25, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We have just spent a week on a return visit to this beautiful, very comfortable cottage. The cottage itself is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is ideally situated for the village amenities and also to visit the surrounding area. The castle is just at the end of the road and the Swanage railway just around the corner.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful cottage

“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location - could not ask for more”
Reviewed September 3, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Beautiful location in a really friendly village, this is the first time we have stayed in this part of Dorset. Fantastic local shops - the village store had over 60 different gins!! The cottage has everything you could ask for and more, it is so spacious and quirky at the same time. The location is perfect for says out or just walking from the front door. We were blessed with lovely weather so spent a lot of time at the beach. We'll definitely visit again!!

“Wonderful cottage with lots to do nearby”
Reviewed August 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A well equipped cottage that makes you feel right at home. For a 2 bedroom cottage, downstairs was huge. The spacious lounge is directly under the bedrooms. The dining room and well equipped kitchen is on the single story bit and as my daughter said, "it's feels huge!" The children's playground is only 2 mins walk away, and the shops, Corfe castle & the best bakery in the area is only 5 mins walk away. There were so much to do nearby - a week's entertainment all within 15 mins drive away, and no 2 days were the same! The children loved it, adults loved it, and there's still so much more to explore in Purbeck so we'll be returning soon again.

“Wissett Cottage - perfect base for a week in Dorset”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Just had a lovely week at Wissett Cottage. It's ideally located in the centre of Corfe Castle, and with parking, which is unusual for the village.

The cottage is a real "home from home" - comfy rooms, fully stocked kitchen - I genuinely can't think of anything we would change. Which is probably why we've been there at least three or four times,and hope to go again next year!
