Visit the National Trust properties at Corfe Castle and Kingston Lacy or take a boat to Brownsea Island.

The two bedroomed, thatched cottage was used by its famous operatic owners in the 1920s as a retreat from London for artists, musicians and dancers. The property has a number of Public Footpaths and Bridleways very close by. Walk over the fields to Corfe Castle village, or over the hill to the beaches of Studland Bay and Swanage, or up on to the Jurassic coastal path. The cottage has the benefit of a wood burning stove, inset in a local stone inglenook, within a double height, vaulted sitting room. (A starter basket of logs can be ordered in advance £29, including cleaning after) It enjoys the modern comforts of Sky+HD, DVD and Broadband WiFi. The Music Room Cottage provides a quiet, rural location, close to the sea and beaches. It is centrally placed for exploring the unique Isle of Purbeck, with its lovely villages and heritage coastline.More

About the neighbourhood
The area around Corfe Castle and the surrounding Isle of Purbeck is beautiful and unspoilt, with many historic villages, sites and local attractions.
Getting around
There are many Public Footpaths and Bridleways, on the cottage's doorstep, you can take over the hill to Studland Bay beach and onto the wider Jurassic Coastline. Corfe Castle and the Village are one and a half miles away, where there are a number of excellent pubs and tea houses, as well as the Purbeck Steam Railway for train rides from Corfe to the seaside town and beach at Swanage.
