Quietly situated behind a pair of cottages and hidden from the lane, Meadow Cottage sits in an attractive garden with spectacular far reaching views over the countryside. Constructed of brick and flint under a clay tiled roof, Meadow Cottage offers spacious and well laid out accommodation with rooms that are light and well-proportioned with good ceiling heights; all the principal rooms are arranged to capitalize on the outstanding outlook. Full planning consent (Reference; 2/2016/1581/FUL) has been granted for a substantial extension to enlarge the existing accommodation. The house is approached from the lane by a shared gravel drive leading to double gates which open into a large gravelled parking and turning area in front of the house. Adjoining this there is a double garage of brick construction under tiled roof. There is a small lawned area at the front of the cottage flanked by box hedging with two silver birch trees. The majority of the garden lies to the rear and is to lawn with gravel pathways, bordered by mature hedging and close bordered fencing. From both the drawing room and the dining room French windows open onto a decked veranda which in turn leads to a paved terrace. Ashmore is reputedly the highest village in Dorset and stands in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Cranborne Chase. The village has a Church, village hall and playing fields as well as a livery yard. Most everyday needs can be found in nearby Ludwell, which has an excellent village shop/Post Office, a butcher and a farm shop. A wider range of facilities can be found in the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, including cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, a boutique hotel, banks, supermarket, a small hospital, library, health and arts centres. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the cathedral city of Salisbury to the east, the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north and Sherborne to the west. There is a mainline railway station at Tisbury (London Waterloo); the A303 lies to the north giving access to the South West and to London via the M3 while the A350 gives access to the south coast.
