About Westwood Farm

New. A rustic farmhouse close to Corfe Castle and the South West Coast Path.

Set on a working cattle and sheep farm, this stone farmhouse offers uninterrupted views over the patchwork fields and hills of Purbeck. It was once used as a hunting lodge for Corfe Castle and has retained its rustic character with original flooring, inglenook fireplaces with wood burning fires and a Rayburn stove in the kitchen. To the side and rear of the property there is a large grassed garden with a BBQ and orchard. The cottage is linked by a loggia to another small cottage, The Cheese House.

With enough room for eight people, Westwood Farm is perfect for large families or groups wanting to explore the golden beaches and rocky headland of the South Dorset Coast. Set out for a walk on one of the many footpaths nearby or loop onto the South West Coast Path. If the weather is against you, retreat inside to snuggle up in one of the cottage’s cosy window seats.

Just a five-minute drive away is Corfe Castle. The castle dates back more than 1,000 years and as a guest at Westwood Farm you can explore the historic ruins free of charge. A day trip to Brownsea Island is also not to be missed. Jump on the ferry at Sandbanks and head over to the island where you could spot wading birds in the lagoon or wander through the woodland in search of red squirrels.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
