“Corfe Castle Corker”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Recently had a two night stay in this lovely two bed period Purbeck cottage with my wife and one year old daughter.
What is evident immediately upon arrival is the tasteful mondernisation which the owners have invested in and the rationalisation of such a confined space. The lounge area is dominated by the open fire place and large suite. A large dining table is supplied with seating on the ground floor window sill for guests and would accommodate a large party of six to eight.
The property has been extended to the rear at ground level with a well appointed, modern kitchen and breakfast bar which leads to a shower room and toilet.
Upstairs is accessable from a tight wooden staircase. The main bedroom at the front has room for a travel cot and the second bedroom has bunk beds for older children. A small toilet is also situated opposite the main bedroom but would be tricky to negotiate quietly in the dark if you are as tall as me.
The cottage is located next to the owners home so help is at hand.
Parking for one vehicle is available off site in a nearby residents only car park.
The big plus for us is that the cottage is ideally located for access to Corfe Castle village and the castle itself and also gives access to the wider Purbeck environment via the excellent Swanage Steam Railway during the summer months.
A minor moan would be that a stair gate would be useful for small children but we did alright without.
Hill View is a little corker of a cottage which certainly made an impression on us all.

“Cosy, comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in Hill View Cottage for a week with 2 children (5 & 12). The house is perfect, clean, comfortable and convenient for exploring the local and surrounding areas. We would definately recommend and hope to stay again in the near future. Many thanks

“Beautiful cottage in stunning, historic village.”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Hill View is a very pretty, clean and comfortable cottage in the picturesque village of Corfe Castle. The cottage was more spacious than we expected and ideal for a family of four. It was a perfect base for exploring the Isle of Purbeck. We would recommend the Castle with it's medieval history and stunning views and the Model village for a great day out without the car. We also took the train into Swanage for an evening out with fish & chips by the sea.
Knoll beach at Studland was fantastic, being National Trust there were good facilities and we would recommend the cream tea's! The beach itself was sandy and very clean.
There are several nice pubs in Corfe Castle itself, as well as The Halfway Inn between Corfe & Wareham which served great food.
We would definitely recommend Hill View and hopefully will return in the future.

“Fabulous cottage”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at the end of July for 1 week & had the most amazing time. Fabulous cottage, lovely & clean had everything you need for a holiday. Really comfy beds, my 2 girls loved the bunk beds. Hot powerful shower, small but perfectly formed kitchen & very secure garden for our dog. Had great weather which made the week even better. My husband & daughter walked into the village square in the mornings for fresh bread & crossiants. Just perfect. Hopefully we will be booking again for next summer.
