Honeypot Cottage is a boutique cottage available to rent for holidays in Corfe Castle, in the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset.
"I think I said it all when we stayed before - this same week last year, again with mostly good weather. We were enchanted yet again by your gorgeous cottage in the beautiful village of #Corfe Castle of the lovely #Dorset. Thank you again for the cake and milk and all the other thoughtful touches that make a stay have a real home-from-home. This time we went to the Blue Pool and walked through beautiful dappled sunshine coming through the trees - another day, Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door and tomorrow we'll visit Tyneham Village - none of which we did last year. One day we had lunch in the garden, after a walk across the Common to the Village Bakery and then retired to your lovely garden room when the wind became a bit chilly - wonderful! Thank you again for a week away from all the stresses and strains - we hope to return next year." 25th April-2nd May 2015 #happyholidaymakers #HoneypotCottageCorfeCastle #returnvisitors #Dorset #cottage #islandcottageholidays #holidays #sunshine
