    “We had a lovely few days at Ammonite Cottage, which is really well-positioned for exploring this area.”

    We particularly liked being in the town and not always having to go out in the car. Despite being right on the road it was very peaceful. The cottage is very nicely styled - very tastefully and thoughtfully furnished. The sofas and beds are comfortable, and it was warm without having to adjust the heating. As it is an old property, you do have to be aware of low doorways (we had a few bumped heads) but this is clear in the property description. The steep stairs are really quite short, and ...

    We particularly liked being in the town and not always having to go out in the car. Despite being right on the road it was very peaceful. The cottage is very nicely styled - very tastefully and thoughtfully furnished. The sofas and beds are comfortable, and it was warm without having to adjust the heating. As it is an old property, you do have to be aware of low doorways (we had a few bumped heads) but this is clear in the property description. The steep stairs are really quite short, and as there is a downstairs loo, you don't have to use them that often anyway. The hand rail makes it quite easy if you go carefully. As for the parking - we managed to park two estate cars - if the second car lets passengers out first and then reverse in, it is much easier. It's the turn into the parking area from the street that is most challenging - much easier to go past it and come in from other direction. We managed fine - and really appreciated having parking space which is not often the case in town cottages. We enjoyed days out at Corfe Castle, Swanage steam railway, and walking on the coast path at Studland.

The property

Situated within the delightful market town of Wareham is this fine, mid-terrace cottage.

Set over three floors, Ammonite Cottage is a Grade II listed building with plenty of period features and character touches.

After a day of hunting for fossils along the Jurassic Coast, relax and unwind in the sitting room, featuring an alluring woodburning stove to keep you toasty during those colder months.

Wander on through to the country-style kitchen, boasting a splendid Rayburn cooker and a selection of worktop appliances to assist your cooking requirements.

Just off the kitchen is the classy dining room, providing ample seating to enjoy a sumptuous feast over a well-deserved glass of wine.

Completing the downstairs is the delightful sun room which offers a quiet spot to enjoy a good read or to simply take in the view of the garden.

The two upper floors host the four bedrooms, sleeping up to seven people.

The first floor is occupied by a king, twin and single, all furnished in a neutral colour tone and are served by lavish bathroom with elegant roll-top bath.

Discover the double bedroom on the second floor, resting under the eaves of the roof with Velux windows providing some natural light.

Outside there is a series of lawn and patio areas where you can delight with a cold refreshment as you plan how to spend the rest of your break.

Take a walk around the Wareham Walls to find out about Viking attacks, civil war skirmishes and gruesome executions, while the museum is a great place to learn about the town’s connections with T.E.

Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).

A break to Dorset wouldn't be complete without a visit to the superb Jurassic Coast, home to numerous award-winning beaches and majestic clifftop walks you won't want to miss out on.

A delightful base placed excellently for a break on the South Coast.

About the location

WAREHAM

Corfe Castle 5 miles; Poole 9 miles; Swanage 11 miles;

Wareham, affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to the Purbecks’ is an ancient Dorset waterside market town. Situated between the River Frome and quaintly named River Piddle, its charming riverside location makes the town a popular holiday destination. Dating back to Saxon times, the town was once surrounded by walls, and became an important port with boats bringing supplies up the River Frome from nearby Poole harbour. Today, the river provides a great playground, you can hire a boat from the attractive quayside and chug your way down the stream, take one of the regular organised boat trips, browse the colourful Saturday market or simply just enjoy an ice cream or a drink relaxing on the Quayside. Whilst seasonally there are also numerous popular events taking place beside the river. A short drive takes you to the Arne peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, a designated RSPB reserve, where you can stroll down to the water’s edge, taking in glimpses of the impressive bird population and often viewing some of the resident deer. The friendly seaside resort of Swanage is also easily accessible, where you can experience a traditional family-friendly day out on the beach, or take the coastal path and stop off for refreshment at Durlston Country Park. A real treat is to drive to nearby Corfe Castle and take the vintage steam railway to Swanage. Wareham offers visitors a super Dorset holiday destination at anytime of the year.

Please note only 2 standard sized cars can park. Only 1 vehicle if bigger than a people carrier.
