This charming, three-bedroom cottage offers total peace and tranquillity. It is situated in one of the prettiest parts of North Dorset just three miles from the A303 and close to the National Trust properties of Stourhead and Montacute. Longleat is just over the border in Wiltshire, while the lovely town of Sherborne with its abbey and Shaftesbury's Gold Hill, made famous by the Hovis advertisement, are close by. The magnificent city of Bath and Salisbury Cathedral are both within an easy drive, as is the Jurassic Dorset coast. Gillingham, two miles away, boasts a mainline station to London Waterloo, leisure centre with swimming pool, tennis courts, restaurants and a Waitrose and Asda. Gastro pubs in nearby villages are highly recommended and serve excellent food. There are wonderful walks from the cottage and plenty of quiet lanes for cycling.
The newly refurbished cottage has an outside patio containing a fire pit and BBQ and a large woodland garden. Double doors from the patio lead to an attractive beamed sitting room with a wood burning stove and large screen TV/DVD. The fully equipped kitchen with table and seating for five, contains a hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher, while the utility room next door hosts a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge and freezer. There is one twin and one double bedroom upstairs and one single downstairs. All bedrooms have ample storage, high spec mattresses, pillows and linen; towels included. There are two bathrooms; upstairs with a bath and downstairs with a shower. No smoking and unfortunately no pets as the cottage is situated on a working farm. Parking is available for two/three cars as is a cycle store and Wifi.
