About the property
CHARACTER COTTAGE IN VILLAGE LOCATION WITH LARGE GARDEN AND BEAUTIFUL VIEWS OVER THE PIDDLE VALLEY
The village is steeped in history, famous for its association with The Tolpuddle Martyrs. Much of the village falls within a Conservation Area and, therefore, retains many of its unspoiled period properties including this one.
Tolpuddle has a strong community, with a vibrant Village Hall offering a variety of events and activities throughout the year, as well as a well-regarded Public House/Restaurant.
The village is in close proximity to Puddletown, where amenities include a Village Store, Post Office, First School and Doctors Surgery. Tolpuddle is approximately a 15 minute drive from the County Town of Dorchester, which is full of character and history offering many great places to eat and drink. Further facilities include a wide range of High Street and Independent Shops, Cinemas, Art Centre, Museums, desirable Schools, County Hospital and a mainline Railway Stations to London Waterloo and Bristol Temple Meads. The famous Jurassic coast World Heritage Site is just a short drive away.
The village offers a wide selection of bridle ways and footpaths including lovely riverside walks.
This unique flint, brick and stone cottage is incredibly deceptive with an abundance of character. Offering three double bedrooms, two receptions and a conservatory. A particular feature is the garden with views over the Piddle Valley and benefitting from a large timber framed garden studio with attached carport.
The property has been restored and maintained to an extremely high specification by the current owners and offers versatile accommodation.
Upon entering the property you are greeted by a cosy formal dining room with multi fuel stove, Gothic mullion window and feature exposed brick wall. Stairs lead to first floor. Archway leads to sitting room which also features a Gothic mullion window to front aspect and multi fuel stove and wood floor. Bifold doors open the room up to the conservatory with lovely views of the garden. French doors lead out to the patio.

The family bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite comprising of basin set into storage cupboards, close coupled WC and bath. Part tiled walls and recessed shelving area.
To the side of the property is a small chapel which is partially linked. At the side of this is the gravel driveway which leads to further parking and carport. This well stocked garden spans the area of the cottage and Chapel at the rear and is laid out in three sections. The first is a sheltered patio area close to the cottage with a range of planting and gravelled area for pots. The second section widens out to a large area of lawn with fruit cages and vegetable patch and beautiful views beyond the low fence. The third area is a large terrace which overlooks the garden and is an ideal area for alfresco dining and abuts the timber framed garden studio which is 16'7 x 16'7 and would be suitable for a number of uses, currently used for entertaining. Behind lies the carport currently used as storage and log store.
