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 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, relax in front of the wood burning stove in the lounge with a hot chocolate. In warmer months enjoy eating al fresco in the enclosed back garden. 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.

Mrs G King
This was our second visit to this cottage, which is well-situated to explore all corners of Dorset and with lovely surroundings. It's spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the owners are very helpful. Although semi-detached, there is no noise at all from their adjoining house. Other visitors have found the road noisy but we didn't have any issue with the traffic, which was minimal during our stay.We'll look forward to visiting again as we think it's unlikely that we'd find a better cottage within our budget in this area of the country! Stayed April 2018

Mrs G Pickering
We have stayed at Lower Pleck Cottage several times this year which clearly demonstrates how pleased we were with the accommodation and location. The property is of a high standard, clean and well decorated. Good sized bedrooms and bathroom and a pleasant enclosed garden. Friendly support available from the owner next door, although we found that we had everything we required. Would have no hesitation in recommending Lower Pleck Cottage as a comfortable holiday home - Stayed August 2017

About the Location

This area is pure, unspoilt English countryside at its best. With glorious views at every turn and miles upon miles of beautiful rural landscape, this area of Dorset is very special. Sitting on the banks of the River Stour surrounded by meadows, farms and woodland, a Blandford holiday cottage offers everything you would need for a tranquil countryside retreat.

Country walks are plentiful in this area, with some lovely walks taking you along the banks of the river, through meadows, along bridleways and through pretty woodland. Just a stone’s throw from Blandford Forum town centre are the riverside meadows of the Marsh and Ham which are a popular choice for walks along the riverbank. Follow the River Stour through pretty waterside gardens and understand why artists from all over the country flock to this glorious part of the world.
