Enjoy a break away to this enchanting fairy-tale cottage akin to a fantasy novel, with its’ unique roundhouse feature, thatched roof and gothic style windows.

The 250 year old gate lodge is conveniently situated on the A352 which is the main access route between the riverside Saxon market town of Wareham and villages of Bovington and Wool, home to some of Dorset’s much loved attractions from the Tank Museum to Monkey World. This is a wonderful opportunity to stay in this charming “Hansel and Gretel” style cottage. Located just off the Wareham to Wool road it is an ideal retreat for an artist/writer to hide away and be creative, as it is located within 2.5 acres of woodland. If it’s more a romantic getaway you’re looking for, then look no further. It will not disappoint you with many a country pub or restaurant nearby that will embellish your taste buds.

A pretty trellis porch welcomes you to the gothic front door of this enchanting cottage. Beyond the entrance hall you will find yourself in the dining room with table and chairs for everyone to sit together. Flagstone flooring and exposed beams are throughout the cottage. Head round the corner into the sitting room which is equally as charming and cosy up whilst enjoying some evening TV. The kitchen comes equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave and Smeg fridge. There is a garden room that leads off the kitchen boasting under floor heating and a stable door leading onto the garden terrace. The bathroom with slipper bath and rain forest over bath shower and WC completes the ground floor. Make your way up the steep cottage staircase to the first floor where you will find the master bedroom with double bed and en suite WC, across the landing a twin room. Both bedrooms are complete with built in storage offering you plenty of space for your holiday wardrobe.

Set in over 2 acres of grounds and Bluebell Woodland, that’s lead down to a stream, there's so much space to enjoy here. An attractive Purbeck stone terrace wraps sympathetically around the rear of the property. There is also a large summerhouse situated on the paddock lawn area where deer roam freely from the woodland, (summer house will be open to visitors from spring 2022). Ample parking on the private driveway and under cover in the high car barn ideal for boats
