About Boar Mill Cottage

A former bakery, this intriguing and cosy cottage sits close to Corfe Castle with walking trails all around.

Boar Mill Cottage has it all; comfort, history, intrigue and a story to tell. As a former bakery, the three-bedroom stone cottage is teeming with quirky original features from the old bread oven in the dining room to remnants of the bakers’ implements still in the cottage. It sits in the shadows of the towering Corfe Castle in its eponymous village, with quaint shops and restaurants within walking distance.


Climb to the top of the thousand-year-old Corfe Castle and take in the views across Purbeck. There are lots of events that take place here throughout the year, to help you delve into the castle’s fascinating history. You could join a guided walking tour, try your hand at archery or get involved with history re-enactment days.


There are many walking trails that start at the castle too. Take the 10-mile ‘Purbeck Ridgeway’ trail, which will lead you out to the Dorset coastline. Studland Bay and its sandy beach are just a 10-minute drive from the cottage.

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.
