Brimming with charm and character, this 18th-century chocolate box cottage offers a delightful home from home for your family and beloved four-legged friends. With extensive countryside views, miles of rural walks lie on your doorstep, an activity that is always best finished with a hearty meal at the local pub just 0.5 miles away. Spend your days exploring the stunning Dorset countryside with the dogs before returning to this cosy bolthole for a night in beside the roaring wood burner or a picnic in the idyllic garden.
This delightful stone cottage has been beautifully renovated by the owners to create a perfect blend of original features and modern-day comforts. The country kitchen/diner is perfect for rustling up delicious family meals, with its Belfast sink and shaker-style units. A farmhouse table in the conservatory offers a sunny spot for family meals. In the evenings, hunker down on one of the sofas or armchairs in the cosy lounge and settle in for a night of films or games while your canine companion enjoys the warmth of the wood burner. Upstairs, both bedrooms have been decorated in serene whites to ensure a restful sleep. When the sun is shining, the mature enclosed garden offers a peaceful haven for BBQs amongst the flowers and plants.
