    Mrs Winfield

    “Even though it is in the country on a narrow country road, it can get very busy, and you can hear the traffic noise early in the morning (if you are in the front bedroom) as people use it as a cut through to go to work.”

    A telephone pylon base comes right in the middle of the garden. We found the owners next door helpful but very distracted (probably busy) and were difficult to get hold of sometimes. Very comfortable inside. Downstairs toilet which is extremely handy. Took us a while to work out how the TV worked even with the instructions! You may publish this feedback if you like, but it's immaterial to us.

The property

This charming cottage, that dates back around 300 years is located in rural Dorset.

The name from the old English word pleck, meaning a little plot of land, is where the cottage name has come from.

Lower Pleck Cottage is warm and welcoming with a stylish and contemporary finish inside and out. Its rural location is super for taking in the fresh air and enjoying country walks where you may spot one of the many inhabitants of the area such as kingfishers or voles.

On your return, enter the front door and relax by the wood burning stove in the sitting room with a hot chocolate.

In the warmer months prepare a tasty evening meal in the cottage style kitchen and par take in al fresco dining in the enclosed back garden.

The property boasts two calm, peaceful and pleasant bedrooms perfect for ensuring a lovely restful night. In the village, around a mile away, is the Crown pub, a pet friendly place which has a reputation for serving good homemade meals with lots of locally sourced produce, several of local ales and has the delights of a beer garden.

You will find a village shop/post office that will be able to provide you with basic, general provisions.

Blandford Forum, a market town is just a short drive away and is ideal for shopping it is notable for its attractive Georgian architecture which was erected when it was majority rebuilt after there was a fire in 1731. With the beautiful Dorset Jurassic Coast, only being around 45 minutes away.

It is another good option for a day trip out to explore the world heritage coastline.

There are few visitor attractions within an easy drive such as the National Trust's Kingston Lacy or the TV famous Monkey World. A relaxing rural cottage, which is ideal for country walks and enjoying a peaceful break away.

About the location


Blandford Forum 4 miles.

The attractive village of Winterborne Stickland is located beneath the majestic Dorset Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Winterborne Stickland is situated in the peaceful, chalk-streamed Winterbourne Valley, which boasts spectacular views from Bulbarrow, one of the highest points in Dorset.

The centre of this charming village features several picturesque cob and thatch cottages including the 17th century inn, and a 13th century church, whilst the surrounding countryside offers wonderful rural walks.

Just 3 miles away is the pretty village of Milton Abbas, with its beautiful Benedictine abbey and exquisite, whitewashed, thatched cottages, often featured on Dorset picture postcards.

Tour the striking Georgian architecture, visit the fascinating Fashion Museum, or sample real ale at the local brewery at nearby Blandford Forum.

Alternatively, explore the colourful market and array of shops, pubs and restaurants at Thomas Hardy’s Dorchester, or enjoy the delights of the scenic Jurassic Coast, both within easy driving distance.

You are truly spoilt for choice at this wonderful location..
