Property Information

Guests arriving at Pound Farm Cottage will immediately feel at home. Although close to the owners' farmhouse, it has its own drive and parking area and the entrance is from the garden at the back of the property giving ample privacy inside and out. Great care has been expended on altering and renovating the cottage to give a light and contemporary feel within whilst preserving many original features dating from the early eighteenth century. Some of the windows frame the exceptional views over fields and woodland to distant hills, and sitting outside in the peaceful garden at the end of the day will be one of the highlights of any stay in this tranquil place.

ACCOMMODATION

Entrance via porch from the garden at the back of the cottage into a spacious, very practical utility/boot room.
Sitting room with original inglenook containing an electric 'woodburning-effect' stove; long views across the garden to the hills beyond. Passageway with access to the front door of the cottage.
Spacious, fitted kitchen with oak worktop, dresser and dining area.
Luxury bathroom/wc with free-standing, roll-top bath, separate corner shower, basin and heated towel rail. Unusual and attractive wood-effect ceramic floor throughout downstairs.

First Floor

Open, carpeted stairs with banister from sitting room straight into a double bedroom with kingsize bed and a low window affording long views across the countryside.

Outside

Long, private, lawned garden at the back of the cottage and views from the far end.

Sorry no pets. Unsuitable for young children, babies welcome. No smoking.

Map & Local Information

Pound Farm Cottage lies on the outskirts of the small village of Leigh. The detached cottage is Grade II listed, part-thatched and has been beautifully restored by its owners with exceptional attention to detail. Its location six miles south of Sherborne makes it ideal as a base for exploring this diverse and attractive area which has an almost limitless number of places of interest. Stately homes such as Montacute, Stourhead (equally famous for its gardens) and Barrington Court are not far away; Sherborne with its ancient abbey and two castles, and Georgian Blandford are well worth visiting, as are Dorchester, Shaftesbury and, slightly further afield, Salisbury with its magnificent cathedral.

The active holidaymaker is especially well-catered for. Leigh is at the centre of an enormous network of footpaths and cycleways: one of the prettiest paths runs beside the cottage to the nearby village of Chetnole and its award-winning pub.

The beautiful Jurassic Coast, with its superb cliff walks and beaches, is about 40 minutes away by car. The owners provide comprehensive information and detailed routes for walkers to take with them.

"This cottage was superb – everything we hoped for and more. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. She was extremely professional and not at all intrusive. The cottage was warm, during one of the coldest weeks of the year. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. All the questions we had were answered in the geust information folder. It couldn’t have been a nicer break."
