Head outdoors and you’ll discover a beautiful and spacious rear garden which affords splendid views over the Purbeck Hills and nearby Corfe Castle. There is a terrace for enjoying those warm Dorset summer evenings, and steps head up to a grassed lawn with shrubs, flower beds and an orchard. To the front of the property, you’ll enjoy a stone front terrace, complete with shrubs and flowers which is reached by a sloping paved path. There is ample parking on Village Lane for your car.
