The Isle of Purbeck, whilst not a true Island but a peninsula, has been safely protected from the vagaries of the modern world by the River Frome and still feels a world apart. Purbeck is famous for its diverse landscape, coast and geology, making it a perfect location for a self-catering holiday in a traditional, Purbeck holiday cottage. Its exceptional geology has led to a rich landscape and has therefore been inhabited for thousands of years. Fancy a stay in this area of outstanding beauty?
