This charming Gate House and 2 pretty cottages are all on the same site - the cottages are terraced and The house is a short walk away. This makes it an ideal choice for guests that wish to holiday together whilst maintaining a degree of independence.This beautiful property is a spacious architectural gem which has been sympathetically restored and now offers stylish interiors and wonderful enclosed grounds. With its high ceilings, cosy nooks, sash windows and a wonderful turned wooden staircase blending seamlessly with the owners passion and keen eye for interior design.

To make your stay extra special, all guests receive a welcome basket of local, homemade treats on arrival, including freshly baked bread from the local bakery, locally sourced free-range eggs, locally produced jam, milk, a selection of Dorset teas and ground coffee.

Tucked away at the outskirts of historic Wimborne Minster gives this wonderful collection of properties a rural feeling but within a short stroll of the vibrant town square and its bars and restaurants.

Within 30 minutes drive you will find Sandbanks peninsula, with miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, and the chance to enjoy a wide variety of water based activities. From here take the iconic chain ferry to Swanage, a glorious victorian seaside town. If you are looking for culture, Kingston Lacy, a National Trust house and gardens are well worth a visit or take in a show or concert at the ’Art Deco’ Tivoli theatre a 5 minute walk away. Further afield Bournemouth with its miles of sandy beaches, promenade and pier are within half an hours drive and well worth a visit! Thinking of heading further afield? Why not head west to the County Town of Dorchester just half an hour’s drive away or find a hidden cove along the jurassic coast or go fossil hunting at Lyme Regis.
