Moving through to the charming lounge you will find a wood burner set into a charming inglenook fireplace, making this a cosy room for relaxing and warming up after a long day exploring the surrounding countryside. An inviting snug next door offers an alternative space to unwind in front of the Smart TV or make use of the selection of games and books available. There are two beautifully presented bedrooms in this property, each enjoying stunning rural views and accessed via separate steep, cottage-style stairs. The first bedroom is accessed via stairs leading from the lounge to the first floor where you will reach a pretty landing area with a quaint window seat overlooking a pond in the adjoining field.

Fabulous location, with lambs frolicking in the neighbouring field.the cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The Aga was new to us but a delight to cook on, we mastered it quite quickly. The hamlet is peaceful and pretty.

We had a lovely break in Park Farm Cottage. It was comfortable without being pretentious. The owners have maintained the atmosphere of this old cottage so beautifully. It was like going back in time. Isolated and charming.

This is an idyllic cottage in deepest rural Dorset. It's perfect throughout. Wonderful just to sit out in the garden and take in the peaceful serenity. My Wife loved the Aga, as she was bought up with one as a child and so loved cooking with it. Wonderful cottage with an inglenook fireplace. Even the driveway is picturesque.
