About this property

  • Dairy Cottage is a most attractive listed Grade II Purbeck stone cottage attached on one side to a neighbouring property and forming part of a courtyard of traditional farm buildings which in recent years have received consent for residential conversion and the opportunity to create an exciting and charming larger country property. The cottage itself has recently undergone a process of renovation and provides characterful well accommodation arranged over two floors with the further opportunity to convert a store room on the first floor subject to the necessary consents. Internally the property has great character, on the ground floor is an attractive sitting room with exposed stone wall, ceiling timber and wood burner and a well appointed kitchen with range cooker, window seats and attractive quarry tiled floor. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

    The property is approached from a quiet lane via a track leading into an enclosed yard at the rear of the property and provides ample parking for cars. The cottage and buildings are laid our in a courtyard arrangement and beyond one of the barns, to the west, is a level area of garden at the bottom of which a footbridge leads across the ditch to a pretty paddock which rises gently to the north west and from which there is separate vehicular access to the road. From the top of paddock there are lovely views back towards the property and in all directions there are blissful views towards the surrounding hills

This is such a pretty little hamlet and the opportunity to convert these listed barns is really exciting
