Additional amenities & feature info
An impressive vaulted thatched barn, the Music Room was developed as a room for a bohemian colony of artists, dancers and musicians to practice for concerts and recitals in London. The Music Room was also used by its operatic owners, as a retreat for local artists and musicians and is immortalised in 'Purbeck on Film' , depicting vignettes of the local bohemian artistic community in the 1930's.

The Music Room has been characterfully restored as a thatched, two-bedroomed cottage. It enjoys its own small private garden and raised decking area, overlooking the Grade II listed 16th Century Roffy House and its extensive gardens.

ACCOMMODATION: Small enclosed front garden with path to front gate. Ground Floor: Main entrance to Utility Room for coats and boots. Bathroom, with bath a...

About the neighbourhood
Corfe Castle lies at the heart of an area known as The Isle of Purbeck - in reality, a peninsula stretching from Wareham in the North, towards Swanage and St Aldhelms Head on the Jurassic coast in the South.

In December 2001, the Dorset and East Devon Coast was officially recognised as one of the natural wonders of the world - the Jurassic Coastline.

This puts the coast around Purbeck firmly on the map as one of the most geologically important places on the planet.

The 95 mile stretch of coast, starting at Old Harry Rocks, near Swanage, provides a walk through some 185 million years of the history of the planet and contains a number of outstanding fossil deposits.

Apart from Corfe, there are many more delights to discover around Purbeck.

The seaside town of Swanage boasts not only the...
