Spring Cottage is a charming period cottage which has been recently re-thatched and cleverly extended and remodelled to provide well-appointed accommodation yet retaining the essence of the original cottage. Both the dining room and sitting room have stone or brick fireplaces containing wood burning stoves, there is a well-appointed kitchen/ breakfast room, useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, three with built in wardrobes, and both bathrooms are beautifully fitted. The remodelling has incorporated a clever use of natural light and there are some delightful rural views over the surrounding country. Raised above the lane and bounded by an established shaped hedge there is a gravelled forecourt front garden. The rear garden has been landscaped and terraced. Immediately to the rear is a paved terrace area with steps leading to a higher garden level which is laid to lawn with lavender border, young fruit trees and a variety of shrubs. There is a further stone chipped terrace area with a garden studio and adjoining store. There are some particularly fine views from the gardens. To the side of the cottage is a paved car parking area together with a small garage. Spring Cottage lies on the fringe of this popular village which has a thriving community with many clubs and societies, two churches and an excellent pub, The Forester. For everyday needs, the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a good range of shops, a boutique hotel, markets, churches, a health centre, a dentist, a small hospital, a veterinary surgery and a library and arts centre. For more sophisticated shopping and recreational facilities there is the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east and Bath to the north west. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo and the A303, approximately 6 miles to the north, gives access to the south west and London via the M3.
