About 2 Heathland Cottages

A quirky holiday cottage in a former isolation hospital with amazing views over the Purbeck Hills.

2 Heathland Cottages is one half of a former isolation hospital. Now a well-equipped, quirky holiday cottage, the interior is clad in pitch pine and boasts a cosy open fire and tall ceilings. There are three bedrooms, one of which a stunning gallery bedroom, and enough room for five people and two dogs.

With amazing views from the cottage over the Purbeck Hills, you’ll soon want to be exploring the area on foot. Make your first pit stop the Halfway Inn, a delightful pub just a five minute stroll from 2 Heathland. The cottage also at the heart of the Jurassic Coast and within easy reach of the Purbeck coast, including picturesque Lulworth Cove.  

Corfe Castle is only 10 minutes by car from the cottage. Open 364 days a year, this fascinating ruin makes for a great day out for all the family. The Victorian seaside resort of Swanage is close by too.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
