This Grade II-listed cottage for two has character in abundance and is ideally placed for touring, with Blandford Forum, Shaftesbury and the Jurassic Coast all within easy reach.

This idyllic cottage is set in the heart of Sturminster Newton, which is a small market town located beside the River Stour. Set within the beautiful Blackmore Vale, there are many walking and cycling routes weaving through this picturesque landscape, including a popular trailway running to Blandford Forum (9 miles). This route takes in several pretty villages and a former railway station, now a small cafe and museum. There is a good selection of local amenities within the town centre itself or why not take a trip to the coast and visit the sandy beaches of Bournemouth and Poole or the rugged Jurassic Coastline, which are within 20 miles.

Steps lead to the entrance into this mid-terrace character cottage and once inside you are met with a welcoming lounge/diner ideal for two, with a step up to the kitchen area at the rear of the space. The inviting lounge area has a wood burner, striking original beams, and a Smart TV. There is space to dine just opposite, and the kitchen area is equipped with an electric oven and hob and fridge. Set within an understairs utility area is a washing machine. Beyond the kitchen is a shower room and a short flight of open stairs leads from the lounge to a small landing area with a separate WC. Carrying on up the winding cottage-style stairs will take you into a mezzanine-style king-size bedroom. This pretty room has been decorated with care and attention with doors leading to the outside balcony which is the ideal spot for your morning coffee. Due to the nature of the property, there are changes of level and areas of restricted head height in places, which only adds to its character and charm.

There is roadside parking (subject to availability)
