The village lies 4 miles from the market town of Sturminster Newton and 6 miles from Blandford Forum in the opposite direction, both of which offer a comprehensive range of amenities including secondary and further educational establishments.

The property enjoys a fabulous rural outlook without the feeling of isolation with a view down the lane to Hod Hill, over fields to Hambleon Hill and to the opposite side a picturesque woodland scene. The inside accommodation blends traditional cottage and contemporary living at its best. The sitting room provides a bright and spacious room with outlook down the lane and a cosy retreat for autumn and winter evenings with the wood burner. The large, on trend, open plan space to the rear provides a great daytime haven as well as a terrific place for family and friends to gather - where lifetime memories may be made. This delightful home is ready to move into - beautifully presented and well maintained - all that you need to do is decide where to place your furniture, then settle into your new life in this peaceful location.

A viewing is vital to truly appreciate the well laid out and well proportioned accommodation, as well as the outside space, which offers plenty of room for play and entertainment, as well as being easy to maintain but also to appreciate the special position.
