A delightful cottage situated in a quintessential Dorset village, this is a great location to enjoy an array of history and heritage locally, with the Jurassic Coast on its’ doorstep.
Set on the eastern edge of the pretty village of Wool, this delightful three-bedroom cottage is a blissful idyll from the busy modern world. Explore Wool’s historic 17th-century Woolbridge Manor, 14th-century chapel, with its Thomas Hardy connection and the 12th-century ruins of Bindon Abbey (0.5 miles), home to a wonderful wellness retreat.

Inside the Grade II-listed cottage, you’ll find a tranquil fusion of rural elegance and minimal modern magic. With wildlife-themed décor in quirky nooks, crannies and angles, this house is a little miracle. Prepare delicious local seafood in the quaint kitchen/diner, and spill out into the rear garden for al fresco feasts and morning coffee and croissants. Gather in the cosy lounge for convivial evenings of wine and reminiscence, before drifting upstairs for a steaming bath or a dreamy sleep in one of the three gorgeous bedrooms, each with its own idiosyncratic charm – up a few steps, the king-size has lovely garden views; the twin has two 4ft beds.
