The cottage is light and bright inside, beautifully decorated with flair and style. The triple aspect windows in the sitting room and master bedroom enjoy wonderful views of open countryside- an ideal setting for someone wanting the rural scene - tranquillity, keeping chickens and growing vegetables or it would be the most perfect weekend retreat. A rural location near the popular village of Toller Porcorum, with great access to Beaminster or Maiden Newton for a wide range of amenities.


The house is set on a country lane near a farm, situated well into its own plot giving even greater seclusion. Turning off the lane, there is a long parking area. The property above this is screened by a mature hedge. There is a pedestrian gate through into the garden. Entering the garden, the Studio is to your right, and a Workshop outbuilding to your left. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, sloping gently uphill to the house giving ample space for growing vegetables, amenity lawns or just enjoying the view. There is an additional strip of land at the North end of the garden, ideal for keeping chickens! There are wonderful views of surrounding countryside from the garden and the house. The property benefits from planning permission for a large extension on the end of the house – details available on Dorset planning portal.
