A wonderful place to stay especially for walking in the Purbecks.
A delightful, spacious cottage with lovely views and within comfortable walking distance of the centre of Corfe Castle where there is a well stocked local shop and an excellent bakery. It is in a wonderful position to walk all over the Purbecks sometimes even from the cottage without having to take a car. The owner is nearby and very friendly and helpful.
Confortable and full of character
Very well equipped - a real home rather than a characterless holiday let. The gardens were beautiful and the views spectacular. A quiet location yet within walking distance to all amenities. We will return.
Wonderful holiday had by all and age range was 4 months to 66 years.
It goes without saying that Corfe Castle and the Swanage area are perfect settings for a holiday and the wonderful weather allowed us to explore their delights. Rosemount itself is by far the best holiday home we have experienced. It is very much a 'home from home', completely equipped, spotless, beautiful garden and allowed us to spend extended time as a family, which was the real point of the holiday. Rosemount easily accommodated six adults and a baby. Tessa herself was a real 'find': unobtrusive, but also friendly and interesting to talk to and helpful. She gave the impression that she enjoyed having us there. Meals eaten and enjoyed sat around the splendid kitchen table will be an abiding memory. The kitchen became a focus and we ate out only once, chiefly because we had packed up and tidied with the intention of an early start to our return journey. None of us wanted to return home: always a good sign. We would very much like to return to Rosemount.
Our 5th visit to Rosemount
13/7/2018 to 27/7/2018.
Our 5th visit to Rosemount and once again we have had a wonderful holiday, the bungalow, its surroundings, garden and views are idyllic. It goes without saying, the weather was amazing.
" Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines" .................." But thy eternal summer shall not fade"
Out thanks to Tessa for her kind hospitality.
A delightful and comfortable bungalow with many amenities within walking distance.
A delightful and comfortable bungalow furnished with all we could need and with an abundance of local information provided by Tessa. A convenient location for everything the area has to offer. This has been our sixth visit which says it all!
Beautiful and comfortable cottage.
We enjoyed our stay in Rosemount very much it was just what 4 young 70 year olds were looking for. Weather was great and we spent pleasant evenings in garden drinking wine and watching the birds.
The cottage was tastefully furnished and Tessa, the owner was lovely and very helpful. The walk to the shops in the morning for fresh croissants was very relaxing. Restaurants in Corfe were also very good.
The cottage is such a delight!
Thank you so much for a really lovely week in beautiful Dorset. The cottage is such a delight, it is very charming, tasteful and light and spacious. As well, the garden is stunning- with gorgeous views!
We have felt very comfortable and happy here and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday
Our second visit to Corfe Castle, but first stay in this cottage. We all had a great time, despite some small setbacks!
The owner could not have been more polite and accommodating!
The cottage was a perfect size, very clean, and well organised. Of course the location cannot be beat, as it is close to the centre of the village and many of the local footpaths. This past week flew by and I think we are all sad to be leaving. Hopefully we'll be back soon! Thank you Tessa for being a wonderful host.
Ideal cottage in all ways

for touring Dorset.
Beautiful bungalow.Clean, everything you could need. Large comfortable rooms. Glorious views from the lounge across beautiful garden. Owner very friendly,helpful and welcoming.
A excellent place to stay.
We had a wonderful week in Rosemount. It is light and airy, has lovely views and a delightful garden. We enjoyed the owner's artistic touches throughout and the fact that it feels like a home, which indeed it is. We found it well placed for walking in the Purbecks, going on the Swanage Railway or simply browsing round some of the interesting shops in Corfe itself.
This holiday home was warm and welcoming on our arrival.
It was well equipped and very clean. The location was good
and the village of Corfe Castle was a nice walk. We spent a happy week there in a home from home and would certainly book this accommodation again.
very comfortable, very quiet and ideally situated
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rosemount. It is very comfortable, very quiet, has almost everything one could want and ideally situated for exploring. There is a lot to see within an hours journey, load of walks locally, beaches, country houses, wildlife and good pubs and restaurants. Theresa has left a mass of information of things to do so one can never get bored and was very kind and helpful and also provided a nice welcome pack.
Comfy,clean and well located, with everything you need within.
This was my first Visit to Rosemount, and it did not disappoint. The home was spacious,clean and well furnished. if an avid reader there are lenty of books to browse though at owners permission. the kitchen is well equiped, with everything you need. the beds are comfy & location peaceful.The owner lives next door, but never interrupts or calls. she is a lovely lady and I too felt not to invade her privacy. The gardens were full and well maintained. and nice touches of owners trade were on view to see. I was so pleased with this location I would love to come back some more in the future. Thank you for making me and my mothers holiday a pleasure.
Very good indeed.
Rosemount is a lovely light house, with large windows looking out onto views of the hills and the owner's delightful garden. It is well-appointed, clean (very important to us!) and comfortable. There was a great deal of local information to help plan days out and a thoughtful welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk and delicious biscuits. There are lots of books and games in the house also and some interesting art pieces.
We loved the peaceful setting of the house.and made use of our access to the owner's pretty garden.
The village had a nice, bustling atmosphere with walkers, families, dogs and cyclist! We frequented the little independent bakery each day and supported the very good village shop, with its post office counter.
The owner is very pleasant and helpful and took the trouble to come and say goodbye to us on the morning of our departure.
We would recommend Rosemount without hesitation.
First class cottage in excellent surroundings.
Excellent accommodation in a lovely area. We all had a wonderful holiday.
A wonderful property - light and spacious with a lovely garden.
A real 'home from home' - beautifully appointed with everything you could need. Very clean and comfortable, with lovely artistic touches. The garden is a joy and the owner delightful. Close to all visitor attractions, yet tucked away in a peaceful location.Couldn't be better!!
peaceful quiet location
Our first visit to Rosemount, It is a lovely bungalow with some interesting art work displayed all around. Very spacious with a very nice garden and it is in a lovely quiet location at the edge of the village.
A comfortable bungalow in a peaceful location convenient for local amenities.
Our fifth visit to Rosemount, a peaceful and comfortable bungalow. A perfect base for the delights of the Isle of Purbeck and convenient for local walks, village pubs and shops and the bus service. Thanks as always to Tessa for her help and kindness and we look forward to a sixth visit!
Perfect for Bird Watching
This lovely bungalow and garden really suited our needs; it provided a good base for the pursuit of bird watching and other interests.
The garden provided more species sightings than RSPB Arne.
Tessa's garden is a delight and, as guests, we were the beneficiaries of the splendid vista through the lounge window.
A tawny owl was heard during the night of the 17th May. We have had a grand holiday.

This has been our second visit to this beautiful bungalow. Peaceful, quiet, lovely part of the Country. Wonderful, enjoyed every minute.
Our Fourth Visit!
Our fourth visit to this comfortable bungalow and so nice to be able once again to walk over The Halves and to enjoy the views from Corfe Common, even though the weather was changeable. We have again enjoyed meals at The Castle Inn in East Street and Clavells in Kimmeridge but also found good food at The Black Swan in Swanage. Could not prevent our daughter joining us again! Thanks again to the owner, as always helpful and accommodating.
A most enjoyable week, with sunshine every day! Many thanks.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home and garden with us. We were also lucky with the weather!
A charming and comfortable bungalow convenient for all local amenities and attractions.
A charming and comfortable bungalow with a lovely garden tended carefully by Tessa. Convenient for everything including the castle, village shops, walks over the common and the steam railway. That's why this has been our fourth visit!
The cottage was beautiful the owner lives next door a very pleasant lady friendly but did not interfere with our stay.
Had a lovely 2 week stay here
Had a lovely 2 week stay here. We love the area, and the bungalow so not even the regular rain could spoil the holiday. It was great having so much space for the kids to run around and to dry stuff.
We went to Studland (Knoll Fish and Chip Fridays were great) We went to the Tank Museum lots to do inside if its raining, Monkey World, Brownsea, Bournemouth Air Show- Red arrows were brilliant. we managed an open top bus which was great but cold. We went to the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth and ate fish and chips on the sea front. Norden to Swanage on the steam train, which we enjoyed watching from the garden, and when it all got to wet we went swimming in Wareham . We had a GREAT time. The owner is so friendly and sooooo helpful.. We will be back!
Second stay at this lovely bungalow
Second stay at this lovely bungalow, cant wait to come back. Thank you for your friendliness and welcome. Very comfortable & peaceful, a lovely spot. Had good meals at Halfway House and Red Lion Swanage
See I told you we would be back!
See I told you we would be back! But once again a week just was not enough time to do all the things we did not do last time! The weather was too good not to visit Studland beach - we will just have to come yet again!
Have had an excellent time, thank you
Have had an excellent time, thank you. Bungalow is perfectly situated being so near to the Castle, railway and village centre. Also lots of good walking country nearby. Great to have done so little driving since arriving with Studland, Wareham & Lulworth all so near. The bungalow is really ideal for us and garden is beautiful.
Thank you for a very nice time, we loved your cottage. We hope to come back soon and we will miss it
We had a brilliant time here. Blessed by excellent weather, highlight was a sunny day at Old Harry Rock & Studland. Excellent meal at The New Inn. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed your cottage.
Great base for exploring
Had a wonderful week. Lovely house in a perfect place. Corfe Castle proved a wonderful base- V.Pretty.
The Castle Inn and The Greyhound provided wonderful meals.
Enjoyed Weymouth and Lulworth Cove. Portland Castle was interesting with a great tea room with lovely view of Chesil Beach. Enjoyed our first of many visits in Dorset. Thank you very much.
Rosemount is a real gem. A beautiful spacious bungalow in a delightful setting
We had a wonderful holiday staying at Rosemount. The bungalow is spacious, light and airy and the garden is delightful. It is ideally situated for Corfe village, only a ten minute walk to the castle and for travelling to nearby Wareham, Swanage and Studland Bay. Now one of our favourite places to stay in Beautiful Isle of Purbeck.

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage. We really liked the garden and the spacy, light kitchen. The cottage was in the perfect location for us. We never had a long drive to reach the beaches and the places we wanted to visit.

Tessa was very helpful and we enjoyed the the accommodation which was excellent. It was lovely to relax in the garden after a busy day out and we enjoyed our meals at The Castle and Mortons House Hotel. Also the take away fish and chips from the Grey Hound were good. Our son with his wife and three year old daughter joined us for a couple nights, but their stay was extended when our daughter-in-law went into premature labour and a baby daughter was delivered in Poole Maternity Hospital. Mother and baby doing well. Many thanks to Dorset Ambulance Service and St Mary's Maternity Hospital.
Location ideal for exploring the local area by foot or car. Comfortable welcoming place to stay. Lovely garden. TV a bit on the old side
