  • "Very spacious and comfortable home."

    Well equipped kitchen. Gorgeous bathroom with huge bath, just what you need after a day walking on the coast! Lovely to be given fresh eggs from the family chickens in the garden, delicious thank you, and apples from the trees too. Close to steam railway station which was a bonus, so nostalgic, everyone should do it! The whole area is fantastic and worth exploring.

The property

Situated in Harmans Cross, this delightful, single-storey abode is the perfect place to explore Purbeck, with Corfe Castle, Swanage, Studland, and the South West Coastal Path all within touching distance. Enjoying a convenient location near a host of amenities, a stylish interior, a private driveway, and outside space - Castle View Annex provides two guests with a wonderful base for a romantic getaway; one furry companion is also welcomed.

Park up outside before making your way into the annexe, firstly reaching the contemporary sitting room, adorning a corner sofa bed, offering flexibility, plush armchair, and a TV, where you can unwind after a day of adventure. Head into the kitchen/diner to prepare meals for two, arriving to a host of state-of-the-art appliances and a dedicated dining area. Venture outdoors for some fresh air, to enjoy the garden and the glimpses of the neighbouring chickens and Purbeck Hills, before returning indoors to freshen up in the sleek en-suite bathroom. After a film night in or an evening out in the local area, climb into the sumptuous king-size bed, ahead of another day of sightseeing and traversing.

Start off your itinerary locally, with the chance to visit the magnificent Corfe Castle, take a walk over the Purbeck Hills with stunning views of Studland, Sandbanks, and RSBP Arne, or perhaps opt for a thrill-seeking afternoon at Dorset Adventure Park, home to water sports and activities.

Traveling towards Purbeck Heritage Coast, reach Swanage and its stunning shoreline and pier, dotted with amenities to also benefit from, before heading further towards Bournemouth and its bustling pier, brimming with attractions; some favourites include Oceanarium, Bournemouth Pier, PierZip at RockReef, Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre, and Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum.

Round off your getaway by reaching Weymouth, adorning a breath-taking beach, and stunning lakeside pathways at RSPB Radipole Lake, before returning to your abode to toast to your getaway. Spend some quality time together at Castle View Annex.
