Nestled in the scenic North Dorset countryside within the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is an ideal base for touring and walking. A short drive away, Shaftesbury (2 miles) provides a picturesque view of the Blackmore Vale and boasts independent shops, cafes and restaurants, plus the iconic Gold Hill. Explore the nearby National Trust sites, including Melbury Beacon, Fontmell Downs, and Win Green, which offer breathtaking panoramas (and all within 6 miles), or travel further afield and visit Stourhead (13 miles), Kingston Lacy (18 miles), and Hardy's Cottage (26 miles). Within 20 miles are Salisbury, Wilton House and Longleat, or head to the Jurassic Coast and the stunning Isle of Purbeck, less than 30 miles away. There’s also the option to explore the Sturminster Newton to Blandford Forum Trailway by bike or on foot.

This single-storey property sits in a peaceful spot adjacent to the owner's home, yet with privacy assured. A private entrance door leads into the cosy open-plan living space. Cleverly designed to suit a couple, you will walk through a galley-style kitchen area, with space to enjoy meals together at the cute wooden dining table before reaching the inviting sofa with a Smart TV opposite so you can watch your favourite shows. The whole space is furnished beautifully and with style, creating a very welcoming atmosphere. Just next door is the double bedroom, and a compact shower room completes the accommodation.

A door leads from both the bedroom and the living space onto one of the best features of the property: the garden. There is a patio area with furniture and charcoal BBQ, all of which are positioned to make the most of the beautiful countryside views.
