          Our house is situated in the centre of the Isle of Purbeck. Our house sits plum in the middle of the Isle of Purbeck and is only minutes by car, away from many varied and interesting beaches. When we viewed the house, we immediately fell in love with the 1/3rd acre garden and the totally fantastic views; the garden backs on to National trust farmland and lends itself to beautiful scenic walks after a few days on the beach!
