Our Accommodation

As the name already suggests our accommodation in the main house is in a very cottage style. On the first floor we have one large, en suite, double room, which is accessible by a spiral stair case. You can sleep under the big Velux window which has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and a clear view of the stars at night. The room also offers a comfortable, sitting room area, with a large selection of old books.

The power shower, with its handmade French tiles, has been added recently and the double room can be fitted with an extra bed. The twin room, with private bathroom (bath and shower), is situated on the ground floor with views on to the garden and the lodge. The private bathroom is opposite the bedroom and is for twin room guests' private use only.

Our Lapland Lodge offers unique accommodation for up to 3 – 4 guests. We have provided sleeping bags with silk liners which lie on top of cushions and sheep skins. Guests have a separate and adjoining cabin with a Belfast sink (hot and cold water) and toilet. Just outside there is a 300 year old pine tree where you may experience the sounds of the owls and other visiting birds. The many candles and the fairy light make a stay at the lodge an unforgettable cosy experience.

The decked platform of the lodge is the ideal place to have your sun downers or late night drinks, certainly one of the most romantic settings one can imagine. All rooms offer tea and coffee facilities, hair dryers and free WIFI (cottage rooms only). Breakfast for all guests is being served in our gardens or the breakfast room in the Cottage (no breakfast served in the Lodge).

 A mobile outside grill is also available to all our guests who may enjoy a private BBQ in our lovely garden. During the colder season we also offer Swiss cheese fondue or raclette evenings (pre-booking essential).

Testimonials 2019

“We enjoyed a really lovely stay in late October. The double room is very comfortable, and Peter is a perfect host. We can definitely recommend booking the raclette evening meal if it is available during your stay. Our places-to-return-to list isn't long, but April Cottage is on it.”

“We had a lovely break at April Cottage. Super location with wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. Delicious breakfast served in their lovely garden. Sleeping in The Lodge was a great adventure for my grandchildren. Thank you, Peter and Joey, for the wonderful experience and making our very spoiled Labrador welcome.”

Nothing but an outstanding 5-star experience. Room was very comfortable, well equipped and the hosts were just lovely people. And the breakfast was out of this world! Would highly recommend this gem of a place.

Peter and Joey have created a beautiful home and garden in a picturesque setting. We received a warm welcome and a delicious breakfast, which was beautifully presented. The location between Corfe Castle and Swanage is great for exploring Purbeck.

Peter and Joey were amazing hosts and did an amazing vegetarian breakfast for us. The house is perfectly located, has beautiful views and an amazing garden.

Peter's place is great for a get-away in Purbeck. His accommodation is perfectly quirky and full of details. His gardens are lovely and peaceful. And his breakfasts are fab! I can recommend staying at April Cottage.

Lapland Lodge is a unique and memorable place to stay, a cross between a ski lodge and a Wendy House for grown-ups, with a giant tree and a steam train at the bottom of the garden. Peter is a generous and welcoming host who cooks a fantastic breakfast and is a mine of local information. If Hansel & Gretel went to the Isle of Purbeck, they would feel at home here!
