walking holiday in corfe castle

Corfe Castle was once a royal castle and historically a very important site.  Therefore the village is surrounded by a vast network of footpaths and bridleways.  The views over Corfe Castle village and the lovely Purbeck stone cottages are beautiful and well worth the (sometimes hilly) stomp.
