“Best View From A Cottage, Ever !”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

So pleased to have found this cottage. Wish we could have stayed longer, enjoyed the decor, artwork and the birds at the feeder.
The garden is spacious with the most gorgeous view of the countryside and castle. The decked area sat perfectly in its spot, and the cottage has everything you could want for an enjoyable break/holiday. The Scott Arms across the road was also a bonus, with plenty of seating indoor and out. Would definitely stay there again.

“Beautiful, quirky cottage stay in lovely part of the UK”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend break to The Old Reading Room. With views over Corfe Castle and the rolling Dorset hills we didn't want to leave. Made all the more special as we got engaged whilst we were there. The unusual décor and welcoming atmposphere made it a lovely home from home. We will be back!

“charming cottage near corfe castle”

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a 3 night Easter break. This is a delightful characterful cottage in the small village of Kingston, with a fabulous view north to Corfe and beyond to Poole harbour. Cosy, well equipped property. A little traffic noise but not intrusive. Lots of great walks from the doorstep especially down to the magnificent coastline. A visit to Chapmans Pool one morning before breakfast was especially memorable.

“Beautiful Cottage in lovely location”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Old Reading Room, the cottage is comfortable and well equipped, the views from the Garden are outstanding looking out towards Corfe Castle. We had the most lovely week, the walks locally are sensational and all within easy reach of the cottage. This is a dog friendly cottage and so is the pub across the road which is an added bonus! Lovely food and very friendly. Owners very helpful, gave handy list of instructions and also in the cottage book with lots of local walks. Highly recommend.
