Located a short walk from the historic town centre this character cottage, dating back to 1750, still retains a lot of its original charm yet benefits from complete modernisation throughout.

The traditional market town of Wareham is a short stroll from your door with its picturesque quay, from where you can hire a rowing boat, bikes or take a trip around Poole Harbour. The town benefits from plenty of restaurants and pubs as well as a reliable bus route and a weekly street market and monthly farmers market. The train station is a 10 minute walk or a short taxi ride away from the property. A wealth of attractions are within easy reach including the National Trust's Corfe Castle, sandy beaches at Swanage, Studland or Poole, thousands of acres of nature reserves at Hartland, Arne or Stoborough, great for birdwatchers and nature lovers. The county town of Dorchester is easily accessible as is the larger town of Bournemouth with seven miles of sandy beaches.

This delightful cottage offers TWO bedrooms: 1 king-size double and 1 further double reached via steep cottage style stairs. Bathroom: bath with shower head attachment and WC. Lounge: benefits from a woodburner (first basket of logs included), flatscreen TV, DVD, Freeview and iPod dock. Kitchen/diner: well-equipped with oven, hob and slim line dishwasher. Utility: with microwave, fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. Outside: enclosed garden with garden seating and BBQ. Amenities: off-road parking for 1 small car only, reached via a narrow entrance to the rear of the cottage. Bed linen, towels (please bring your own beach towels), electric, central heating and wi-fi included. Childs buggy and booster seat available. Regret no smoking within the property. 2 well-behaved dogs welcome more by arrangement. Additional info: narrow access to allocated parking for the property, however there is additional adjacent street parking available.

This is a lovely, clean & very well equipped cottage. The driveway is very tight, we just managed to get down with a Peugeot 3008 with the wing mirrors in but it was a struggle. We had a lovely time & would recommend it if your car isn't too big.

The cottage is comfortable and clean, and Wareham is a pretty little town. But parking is a nightmare - you can only park at the property if you have a small car or nerves of steel, and parking on the road is a total lottery, so be very aware of this if you decide to stay there.
