Relax in this quintessentially English garden which boasts a large lawn, children’s play area and even a BBQ hut to bring the whole family together for indoor-outdoor dining.
With a thatched roof and red brick exterior, Lambs Cottage is a charming traditional cottage in rural Dorset, with a contemporary twist.
As you pull into the driveway, you may be tricked into thinking this is an ordinary cottage, but, step inside, and you’ll find quite an extraordinary home. The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and living room. The kitchen has rich blue fittings, colourful tiling and a delightful central island that doubles as a breakfast bar. An L-shaped sofa backs onto this, in front of a large wall-mounted TV and beside a vast set of French doors that lead into the garden. There’s a second, cosier living room with two sofas by the fireplace and another TV for taking time to relax and switch off, and there’s a formal dining room for special occasions with the whole group.
There are four unique bedrooms, yet equally welcoming and luxurious. The first, a majestic double, is undoubtedly the master suite. A vibrant feature wall lights up the room, while a warm glow floods through the huge double doors that take you straight onto your private terrace. Alongside this, you’ll find two more double rooms, one with a terrace, and a special twin room, each working with the unusual structure of the cottage, with overhead wooden beams and nooks and crannies for storage. There are three excellent bathrooms, two are gleaming white with large showers, one en-suite and one family bathroom. The third is a stylish en-suite to the master room, with a freestanding bathtub.
And finally – perhaps where you’ll spend more time than anywhere –the enchanting garden welcomes you with a spacious terrace and a vast lawn. It seems to wind itself endlessly around the home, tucking incredible al fresco dining areas in one part, and sun loungers in another. For the children, there’s an incredible play area, while for those seeking a little respite, there’s a sheltered chill-out area with a grill in the centre. When the sun’s shining down, fire up the barbeque and enjoy an idyllic day of fine food, fresh air and the calm of the Dorset countryside.
Just a short walk away, you’ll find the fabulous village pub, restaurants and shops, while in the local area, there are plenty of parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and quaint towns to explore.
