  • Bedrooms: 2
A chocolate box cottage with gorgeous character features and a large garden. Picturesque village setting. 2 double bedrooms. Presented in excellent order throughout. Grade II Listed.


1 Wayside is an endearing chocolate box cottage located at the heart of one of West Dorset's most desirable villages. With its mellow stone elevations beneath a thatched roof, this Grade II Listed property is the epitome of a classic country cottage, and the character of the frontage is reflected inside where a wealth of period features can be seen including an inglenook fireplace, cottage doors and exposed floorboards. Having been re-thatched in July 2019, the property is presented to an exacting standard with contemporary, yet complementary, shower room fittings, a delightful rustic-style kitchen and a fresh, neutral scheme of decoration throughout, creating a ready-to-move-in-to home with endless charm.

Stepping through the wooden front door, the appeal of this wonderful cottage can be felt immediately in the comfortable sitting/dining room, where a stone fireplace with wood burner, painted wooden floors and beams make it clear that this is a home with personality of its very own. The kitchen offers the best of both worlds; fitted units beneath a wooden work surface reflect the property's historic origins whilst the utility room benefits from further fitted units and spaces for appliances, including a washer/dryer, providing excellent modern convenience. Also on the ground floor is the shower room which is beautifully appointed with a contemporary suite and classically stylish tiles. A concealed wooden staircase leads from the sitting room to the first floor where there are two generous double bedrooms, one of which currently holds a superking-sized bed.


From the utility room a stable door opens directly to a lovely garden which stretches nearly 140ft from the back of the cottage, and culminates in a delightful terraced area adjacent to a small stream. Featuring a sun deck over the stream and a large summerhouse, this terrace is the perfect place to relax, dine or entertain out of doors and maximise the benefits of the sense of peace and tranquillity on offer here. The rest of the garden is similarly appealing, comprising a generously sized, level lawn and a paved sun terrace abutting the house, both fully enclosed to ensure security for children and dogs.


The property is located within a Conservation area in Stoke Abbott: a popular village within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, renowned for its many historic properties and picturesque scenery. Within the village there is a pub, the New Inn, and a church with a good range of everyday amenities available just 2 miles away in Beaminster including a mini-supermarket, several independent retailers, greengrocer, bakery, post office, 2 doctor's surgeries and several pubs, restaurants and cafes.
