This attractive Grade II Listed period Purbeck stone cottage is situated in the sought after location of West Street and is a short distance from Corfe Common, the Village Square, shops and the distinctive ruins of Corfe Castle. Westcott is in the perfect setting for countryside living in this picturesque village.

The cottage is thought to date back to the 16th Century. In more recent times it been has been extended and sympathetically refurbished throughout. The property effortlessly blends contemporary living with a wealth of characterful features and enjoys superb views of Corfe Castle from the garden.

The quintessential village of Corfe Castle lies at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck and sits to the West of the seaside resorts, Swanage and Studland (5 miles distant). Studland holds fine, safe, sandy beaches and the market town of Wareham a similar distance, which has main line rail links to London Waterloo (approx 2.5 hours). Much of the area surrounding the village is classified as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty incorporating the Jurassic Coast, part of the World Heritage Coastline.

Current owners have plans drawn to carry out alterations and extentions to the property as well as adding a detached garage.
