CHARMING COTTAGE QUIETLY LOCATED WITHIN THE WALLS OF WAREHAM

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 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: 2 king-size doubles reached via steep cottage style stairs. Bathroom: located on the first floor offers bath with shower attachment and WC and a further shower room with under-floor heating and WC located on the ground floor. Lounge: benefits from a woodburner (first basket of logs included), flatscreen TV, DVD, Freeview and iPod dock. Kitchen/diner: with under-floor heating and well-equipped with electric range cooker, fridge with ice compartment and slim line dishwasher. Utility area: with microwave, 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 subject to availability. Location: beach 4 miles, shops, pubs and restaurants all within walking distance. Arrival: 3.30pm

Lovely cosy cottage in a great location 10 mins walk from train station and a few minutes walk to Wareham town centre and quay. Great for exploring surrounding areas like Corfe, Swanage and the Purbecks. The cottage was very homely and nicely decorated with everything we needed. We would definitely stay again.

The cottage was lovely, very well equipped. Lovely shower. Wareham is a lovely town, with plenty of eating places and a cinema. The garden could have done with a little pruning but it was dog friendly - they couldn't get out!

Nice cottage, comfortable and well equipped. Convenient for Poole, Swanage, Dorchester and south coast. Wareham a very nice little town with all amenities and pretty riverside walks. Parking at cottage is not so difficult if you realise that the evergreen growing a wall is actually 6 to 12 incges from wall giving a lot more clearance than you thingRead more but dont try reversing up as tight on bend but easy driving up.

Fabulous cottage with lots of additional touches that make you feel right at home. The location is perfect for exploring Wareham and the Isle of Purbeck. You must have a small car for the tight parking as there isn't usually any on street parking near the house but overall you cannot fault this lovely house. The welcome cream tea was delicious too,Read more thank you, we hope to come back! Hide

Pretty old terraced cottage in quiet residential road. Short walk, passing good pub and Co-op, to the centre of this little town. Very private back garden with sparrows happily carrying on their sociable and gregarious lives.

Mill cottage in Wareham was ideally situated for a holiday in the Purbeck Dorset area. Lots to do nearby including Corfe Castle and Brownsea Island. Cottage was cosy, warm, well furnished to a high degree. Lots of good restaurants and pubs nearby.

A real home away from home. Perfect for a break with a 6 month old. We couldn't park our car behind the property as it was too big, but we knew this & didn't have a problem finding a space on the street. A lovely base from which we could explore Dorset.

The Cottage is lovely and in a very convenient situation in Wareham with very easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. Lovely little cottage garden, which was very useful for the dogs. Parking is a bit of an issue. Very tight access to the parking at the rear of the property.

A very well equipped cottage which we found very comfortable. Nice to find 2 double beds when 2 couples are looking for somewhere to stay. We are planning a return visit with friends to visit the local scenery, coast and nature reserves which surround the area, while taking advantage of the town restaurants, pub etc in walking distance.

Another thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing week at Mill Cottage. The cottage itself is very cosy, but with well-sized rooms, is well appointed, and despite being adjacent to the High Street, is very quiet. It's also perfectly located for all the best that Dorset has to offer. We plan to come back next year for a 3rd stay - we absolutely love it therRead moree! Hide
