THE PROPERTY

Well Cottage is a beautifully presented period cottage, carefully extended to enhance its accommodation and occupying a delightful rural position, adjoining fields with stunning views. The cottage has well planned and flexible accommodation which has retained much of its original character including fireplaces and exposed timbers together with a stunning kitchen and delightful garden room. The bathrooms and shower rooms are well appointed, and the cottage is attractively decorated throughout. Timber gates lead via a gravelled drive to a car parking area and double garage with storage above. The garden deserves a special mention, enclosed by hedging and adjoining agricultural land. Immediately adjoining the cottage are paved terraced sitting areas with lavender borders, beyond which lies the lawn with shrubs and flowerbeds. At the bottom of the garden is a further lawned area, timber summerhouse, workshop and store. Well Cottage is situated in the hamlet of Bedchester in the heart of the Blackmore Vale, not far from the Cranborne Chase. Fontmell Magna is the nearest village of any size some 1.5 miles to the East, much of which is a designated Conservation Area. There is a Post Office/Stores, Church of England Primary School, doctor's surgery, village hall, tennis court and playing fields, well-reviewed popular village pub/restaurant and many public footpaths and bridleways. To the north, the hilltop town of Shaftesbury has facilities for most everyday needs, including an excellent range of shops, a boutique hotel, churches, health centre, small hospital, museums, library and arts centre. A more extensive range of facilities can be found in Salisbury, Bath, Sherborne and Yeovil. There are leisure facilities and a Waitrose in Gillingham, while the A303 (approximately 6 miles north of Shaftesbury) links to the M3 making London and the South West readily accessible by road.
