Juxtaposed with the lovely background of Beach Gardens over the road, with its putting greens, tennis courts and bowling green, we believe our front garden makes a super spot to relax.

Walking in sunshine – Corfe Castle to Cocknowle

Corfe Castle

This afternoon we parked in the free car park near Corfe Castle and walked to Cocknowle. After a gloomy start to the day the sun really came out in the afternoon and we were treated to some stunning views.
