Wise Cottage is a 250 year old cottage with a boutique feel and sweeping views over fields, situated in a beautiful village near Shaftesbury, Dorset. A few yards from the shop is an excellent playground and our award winning village shop.
The cottage has been furnished with antiques, carefully chosen pieces from our travels abroad, soft rugs and comfortable furniture to make a stay as wonderful as possible. The cottage is close to Longleat, Stone Henge, the Georgian City of Bath and the beautiful Dorset coast. (We are happy to accept well behaved dogs).
The cottage sleeps four comfortably and five cozily, 2 bedrooms, 1 large master bedroom with a super kingsize bed and a small bedroom with adult bunks. A guest bed can be put up in the main bedroom or the sitting room for a fifth guest (there is not room in the bunk room for the extra bed).
The cottage includes a wood burner, super fast Wifi and garden. There is a large sitting room with oak dining table and contemporary chairs, a well fitted kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
The main bedroom has an upholstered Super kingsize bed with high quality Vi Spring mattress, high quality microfibre duvets and bed linens. The second bedroom has full size bunk beds. Polished wooden floors, Roger Oates runners, sisal flooring and oak floorboards. The bathroom has a pressurised shower and bath. There are plenty of towels provided as well as a wonderful organic bath and body range. The bathroom is situated downstairs opposite the kitchen.
The garden is situated up steps from the cottage, it is probably not easily accessed by anyone disabled or infirm. It is a cottage garden, not highly manicured but with wonderful views in every direction. A table and chairs and a barbecue and tongs are also provided. There is a side access to the garden and it is fenced, so will contain a not overly ambitious dog.
The cottage has a Samsung 32" smart TV, super fast broad band, a small office with desk. Mobile reception is good, but patchy in the downstairs rooms.
There is a wood burner and logs (extra logs can be supplied for a further price), iPod dock, Roberts radio, smart TV, fluffy towels, high quality linen, bathrobes, high quality bath and body range of products.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all china and cutlery, pans, casserole dishes, salad bowls, a Nespresso coffee maker (with coffee capsules!) and there is a supply of tea bags, coffee, sugar, olive oil and salt and pepper to start you off. We always leave a welcome pack such as fresh local bread, home made jam, butter and milk.
Guests are welcome to use the swimming pool in our garden, a few metres walk from the cottage, we use it when you are not, so it is available for your private use at many times through the day (heated from mid May to end of September).
