    About this property

    • The original cottage at West Farm probably dates to the 19th century, but was substantially enlarged by the present owners in the last 15 years. The house now provides spacious, well arranged accommodation over two floors and resides in a glorious, elevated rural location with long views south over the rolling West Dorset countryside from many of the rooms. The old cottage is built of brick and stone and provides a kitchen, dining room and conservatory on the ground floor and three bedrooms above. The newly added part, of painted render with stone quoins, provides two good reception rooms, a rear hall and cloakroom, a spacious main bedroom suite and a family bathroom.

      Outside
      West Farm Cottage is approached from the lane, where a pair of five bar gates open onto a substantial gravelled area for parking which sweeps round from the side of the property to the rear. At the rear is access to the stable block and barns and the northern block of land. The main formal garden rises in lawned terraces to the rear of the property; the banks being planted with wild flowers. From here are fabulous distant views south. The land at West Farm Cottage is in two blocks, the northern block wraps around the house and garden and extends to about 14.24 acres. Across the track to the south is a further block of about 8.7 acres.
