The secluded grounds comprise of well maintained gardens with a good sized parking area for several cars. This charming cottage is positioned in a convenient location within the heart of Cranborne village centre, with all the local amenities nearby. This peaceful and pretty village has a village shop, two good public houses, two hotels with restaurants which also include a Country Club and a Stately Home - Cranborne Manor incorporating a garden centre and tea rooms. There is also great beer at The Six Penny Brewery with its Tap bar open to the public everyday and is just a 10 minute stroll through the lovely countryside. The medieval village lies within the beautiful countryside of Cranborne Chase, designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The well known nearby market towns of Ringwood and Wimborne, which are approximately ten miles distant, offer excellent shopping facilities with both having a Waitrose supermarket. The superb outdoor pursuits in the area include; walking, riding and cycling at Cranborne Chase or within the New Forest, approx seven miles away. The cathedral city of Salisbury is approx eighteen miles distant. The A31 and A338 are easily accessed at Ringwood, and heading south-west you will reach Bournemouth, Poole and the coast. Heading east along the A31 the city of Southampton is approx 18 miles distant (from Ringwood) via the M27, and onwards to London via the M3. Paultons Park with its Peppa Pig World is also just a short drive away. There are many attractions nearby including Hollybrook Farm just 5 minutes drive away, The Heavy Horse Center, Monkey World, The Tank Museum, Sealife Center, Moor’s Valley Country Park, Christchurch Ski Center, The New Forest Water Park, Poole Water Park plus many more. The amazing sandy beaches in Bournemouth and Sandbanks are also just a short drive away. A covered thatched porch and front door opens into a particularly spacious reception hall, finished with attractive wood-block flooring and comprising an oak staircase rising to the first floor and beams to the ceiling (which also feature in the two principal reception rooms). Adjacent, the elegant sitting room has a double aspect, with an inglenook fireplace providing an attractive focal point. The second reception room is a dining room, and also features an impressive brick inglenook fireplace and wood-block flooring, and is semi-open plan to the rear aspect kitchen/breakfast room, which has underfloor heating. The modern kitchen is fitted with a good range of cream units, with granite work-surfaces and a range of quality integrated Neff appliances, including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, inset oven, combination oven and induction hob. The breakfast area offers a breakfast table with a glazed roof above providing ample natural light and French doors opening onto the beautiful gardens. A separate utility room houses further appliances. Leading off the kitchen is a useful shower room with a WC, which is fully tiled. From the first floor landing are four bedrooms and a beautifully presented family bathroom suite; with underfloor heating and comprising an oval bath with shower attachment, pedestal wash basin and WC. The well appointed master bedroom has the benefit of a built in wardrobe at the side of the chimney breast and a quality fitted en-suite shower room, which includes a large walk in shower cubicle. Both bathroom suites feature attractive window shutters. Bedrooms two and three have an aspect to the front, whilst bedroom four has a rear aspect and a walk in wardrobe. Unlike many traditional thatched cottages which have restricted head height, this cottage boasts exceptional headroom throughout the majority of the property. There is vehicular access around the side of the property, through a five bar gate, to a good sized shingle parking area and the substantial detached Barn, which incorporates a double garage with twin doors. The gardens are beautifully maintained and are mainly laid to lawn, with a superb terrace positioned to make the most of the evening sun, bordered by pretty flower/shrub beds and mature hedging.More
