    “A wonderfully well equipped cottage in the middle of Wareham.”

    Had everything we needed. Was a special place to stay, and felt quite special.

    Had everything we needed. Was a special place to stay, and felt quite special. Walking distance to shops, pubs and restaurants. Loads to do locally and fantastic walks on coast path. Would definitely recommend to others.

The property

Ammonite Cottage sits in a mid-terrace position, bursting with character and within a short walk of the amenities of the wonderful Dorset market town of Wareham.

It is an 18th century grade II listed cottage with numerous original features.

The name Ammonite Cottage was chosen because the property lies on the Jurassic coast where so many fossils have been found.

You can see some of them in the national museums, but there are also small local museums.

If you are lucky you may even find your own fossils on the beach as many amateur fossil hunters have done before you.

With a wealth of rustic features, this is an ideal stay for family and friends wanting to come together and get away from it all.

Feel welcome from the moment you step in through the bright blue door; a cosy sitting room is enhanced by original stone flooring and a fabulous woodburning stove.

A classy dining room rests adjacently, also warmed by an attractive stove.

Rustle up each scrumptious meal in the wonderful country-cottage-style kitchen, laced with cream fittings and all of the appliances you will require, including a marvellous Rayburn, bringing a real sense of character.

To enjoy the sun from the comfort of this homely accommodation, take a seat in the sun room which looks over the surprisingly large back garden.

Ammonite Cottage lies across three floors; the two upper floors house the four splendid bedrooms.

The first floor, graced with rustic wooden floorboards, plays host to a king, a twin and a single, all thoughtfully finished and served by a classy bathroom featuring an exquisite roll-top bath.

Head to the second floor to discover a peaceful double room nestling under the eaves with exposed beams and Velux windows making it a truly delightful spot to get your rest.

Embrace your fine countryside location by spending some time in the back garden; a series of lawn and patio areas offer a variety of spots to sit and relax.

A short stroll brings you to Wareham's town centre with its amenities, museum and cinema.

Wareham is accessible by train and there are also busses and trains to many other local sites such as Corfe Castle or local beaches.

You can even catch a steam train from Corfe to Swanage.

There is much to see and do nearby, from the astonishing countryside and coastline of the Dorset AONB to the stunning coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth both making for excellent day trips.

Wareham still has most of its medieval walls which you can walk around today.

Wareham is the gateway to the Isle of Purbeck.

If you are fan of Thomas Hardy, Enid Blyton, Laurence of Arabia or history from stone-age onwards there is much to discover in the town and surrounding area.

As well as walking fishing, sailing or simply relaxing.

A remarkably unique cottage in a fantastic location.

About the location


Corfe Castle 5 miles; Poole 9 miles; Swanage 11 miles;

Wareham, affectionately known as the ‘Gateway to the Purbecks’ is an ancient Dorset waterside market town. Situated between the River Frome and quaintly named River Piddle, its charming riverside location makes the town a popular holiday destination. Dating back to Saxon times, the town was once surrounded by walls, and became an important port with boats bringing supplies up the River Frome from nearby Poole harbour. Today, the river provides a great playground, you can hire a boat from the attractive quayside and chug your way down the stream, take one of the regular organised boat trips, browse the colourful Saturday market or simply just enjoy an ice cream or a drink relaxing on the Quayside. Whilst seasonally there are also numerous popular events taking place beside the river. A short drive takes you to the Arne peninsula jutting out into Poole Harbour, a designated RSPB reserve, where you can stroll down to the water’s edge, taking in glimpses of the impressive bird population and often viewing some of the resident deer. The friendly seaside resort of Swanage is also easily accessible, where you can experience a traditional family-friendly day out on the beach, or take the coastal path and stop off for refreshment at Durlston Country Park. A real treat is to drive to nearby Corfe Castle and take the vintage steam railway to Swanage. Wareham offers visitors a super Dorset holiday destination at anytime of the year.
