Purbeck Vineyard Ref: DBBJ

This large detached holiday home is located in the village of Harmans Cross, between the Jurassic Coastline, a designated World Heritage Site, and the picture postcard village of Corfe Castle. The vineyard was established in 2000 and has some 3000 vines. The on-site winery enables the wine grapes to be harvested, pressed and vinified into wine that truly is chateau bottled. Tours can be organised by prior arrangement. Food hampers, casks and ½ casks of local beer and wine can be pre-ordered. The bedrooms are inviting, unique and individual - designed with relaxation in mind; they all feature hand sprung mattresses, deep baths or spectacular power showers. Many of the rooms have balconies overlooking the vineyard, steam railway and views of the panoramic Purbeck Hills. This accommodation has been furnished using the finest contemporary fabrics, fittings and furniture.
The Swanage steam railway can be seen passing by along the bottom of the valley close to the vineyard and one of the stops is at nearby Harmans Cross station. The line runs from NT Corfe Castle along to Swanage. The seaside town of Swanage is popular all year around, with the coastal paths, Dulston Country Park, a sandy beach, promenade and small pier. Activities which can be enjoyed locally include horse riding, sailing, golf, tennis, diving, windsurfing and sea fishing. There is also an RSPB reserve at Arne near the Saxon town of Wareham. Popular places to visit include Blue Pool, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, NT Brownsea Island, Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum. A little further a field are the larger seaside resorts of Sandbanks, Bournemouth and Weymouth. The Sealife Centre, Abbotsbury Swannery and Athelhampton House and Gardens are easily accessible.
