Amazing Cottage Style Decor Ideas
I’m going to put it out there, I think Corfe Castle is the prettiest village in the country, there I said it! The actual Castle is just visible behind the pretty cottage. The name “Corfe” is derived from the Saxon word, ceorfan, meaning to cut or carve, referring to the gap in the Purbeck hills where Corfe Castle is situated.
The village is believed to have been occupied since 6000 bc. In the 18th century, clay quarrying developed as an industry in the village. By the middle of the century, with the arrival of William Pike – a merchant from Devon, activity expanded significantly. In 1791 Pike signed a five-year contract with Josiah Wedgwood to supply 1200 tons of clay. #corfecastle #dorset #dorsetcoast #dorsetlife #dorsetcountryside #dorsetcottage #visitdorset #cottage #cottagesandbungalows #cottagestyle
