  • Bedrooms: 3
This period cottage is situated in a sought after location approximately 150 metres from the Village Square and Castle Ruins. The building is Grade II Listed and thought to date back to circa 1640. It is of natural Purbeck stone construction under a stone tiled roof with a flat roof to the rear extension.

Lime Cottage derives its name from the fact that the ground floor bedroom was originally the Village Lime Store and the old gateway can still be seen on the wall adjoining the side access alleyway.

The quintessential village of Corfe Castle lies at the centre of the Isle of Purbeck and sits to the West of the seaside resort of Swanage (5 miles distant) with its fine, safe, sandy beach 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.

Leading off, the good sized kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of cottage style units, twin bowl sink and integrated electric oven and hob.
