    “Very pleasant cottage, nice rural setting.”

    Cottage could do with a general tidy up, broken window catches, outside lights not working, few areas of mould and television not working properly.

The property

Dating back around 300 years, this charming cottage is located in rural Dorset.

The property earned its name from the old English word pleck, meaning a little plot of land.

Lower Pleck Cottage is warm and welcoming and has a stylish and contemporary finish inside and out. Its rural location is super for enjoying fresh air and country walks where you may spot one of the many inhabitants of the area such as kingfishers or voles.

On your return, step inside the front door and then relax in front of the wood burning stove in the lounge with a hot chocolate.

In warmer months prepare an evening meal in the cottage style kitchen and then enjoy eating al fresco in the enclosed back garden.

The property has two calm and peaceful bedrooms perfect for ensuring a lovely restful night. In the village, around a mile away, is the Crown pub, a pet friendly establishment which has a reputation for serving good homemade meals with lots of locally sourced produce, a variety of local ales and has the bonus of a beer garden.

You will also find a village shop/post office that will be able to provide you with general provisions.

The market town of Blandford Forum is a short drive away and is good for shopping.

It is notable for its attractive Georgian architecture which was erected when it was mostly rebuilt after a fire in 1731. With the Dorset coast around 45 minutes away, another good option for a day trip is to enjoy the world heritage coastline.

There are a number of visitor attractions within an easy drive such as the National Trust's Kingston Lacy or the world acclaimed Monkey World. A tranquil rural cottage ideal for country walks and peaceful break away.
