Our stay at Castle View was comfortable. Our smallish second floor room, nestled under the sloping roof, was charming, with a comfortable bed (plus 2 smaller beds which we didn’t need, but which could have accommodated another adult, or a couple of kids), two small but comfortable chairs, lots of storage for clothes, and a small refrigerator (with complimentary chocolate – a nice touch). There was a small but well equipped bathroom, which had been newly renovated. Angela and Peter made us feel very welcome (and Peter took our bags upstairs for us). Breakfast was excellent, including cereal and delicious fresh fruit as well as the usual English cooked items. Free Wi-Fi was available downstairs in the dining room. Castle View is a 10 minute drive from Corfe Castle. There was no view of the castle from our room (Castle View was the name of the original house, which did have a view, and you can see the Castle from one spot in the private back yard). Castle View is a good place to stay if you want to visit Corfe Castle (an imposing ruin which is well worth a visit).
