Corfe Castle is a picturesque little village set in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck. Climbing up the castle and seeing historical re-enactments are some of the favourite activities in the village. The castle dates back to William the Conqueror. However, when the Roundheads took the castle Oliver Cromwell blew up battlements ensuring the castle would never be used again.
It is possible to walk from your lodge on to the top of Challow Hill and then on to Corfe Castle enjoying the magnificent views of Poole Harbour. The village boasts four pubs of many of which serving delicious food and one with a well in the middle of the pub. There is also a tea room which has a model village and castle for people to walk round and view the village as it was hundreds of years ago.
