Corfe Castle, the South Coasts most infamous ruin.
Located deep in the beautiful Dorset countryside only a few miles from Wareham and Swanage is the delightful stone village, named after the ruins of the castle which sits high on a gap in the Purbeck Hills, over looking this delightful hamlet. The village offers a unique range of independant shops, pubs restaurants and tea houses amd hotels. The castle, nowadays in the hands of the National Trust, gives a glimpse back through several periods of history and wonderful views from its lofty perch.http://www.corfe-castle.co.uk
