A detailed planning consent has been granted for a spacious detached 4-bedroom thatched cottage within the Dorset AONB and in a picturesque village setting within the Conservation Area. The cottage is approximately 1530sq.ft, with a lounge, kitchen, dining room, utility room; porch and larder on the ground floor, on the 1st floor are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, 1 en-suite. The cottage sits to the north of the site to allow for a large south-facing garden. Adjacent to the cottage will be a double garage. The cottage will sit in an elevated position with countryside views. Much of the village consists of cob and thatch buildings within the Conservation Area, this one will benefit from lime wash render and a thatched roof.

The Site

The plot extends to approximately a quarter of an acre with a large south-facing garden and is on a quiet no-through lane. The plot is currently being dug out by the present owners. The final building level will sit approximately 0.5m above the line of the retaining wall. The retaining wall needs to be further extended around the plot by the new owners. The plot has a chalk upland surface.

The Area

The village is in the Dorset Downs AONB some 4 miles from Blandford Forum. The village has a population of over 500 people. Amenities include a 17th century inn, post office, shop, pub, village hall, church and school. To the north of the village is a sports club for cricket and football and a play area. There are many other local clubs and social events within the village. The market town of Blandford Forum has been described by The Guardian as A Little Bath, as it is noted for its Georgian Architecture. As well as the Saturday market, the town has numerous shops, restaurants and supermarkets and has a population of around 11,500. The Blandford School has been rated as Good by Ofsted whilst independent education is offered at Bryanston School and Canford School amongst others


The plot has access to electricity and water but will require a septic tank or similar arrangement as there is no mains drainage. We would advise potential purchasers to check with suppliers before exchange of contracts.
