Overview

Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Meadow Cottage offers the charm and character of a country house, with its own unique styles and magical features. Situated in the beautiful Dorset town of Wimborne Minster, this traditional 18th century cottage is the perfect holiday retreat. Set within a walled garden on the Deans Court estate, the cottage offers ample space for six guests to rest and restore, with space for four within the cottage itself, and two in the quirky shepherd’s hut which is found in the picturesque garden.

Paired with Stour Valley Cottage, a similar six-guest property next door, this set up is perfect for two families travelling together, that can enjoy each other’s company, whilst benefiting from the privacy of separate cottages.

Chalk white walls, Farrow & Ball paints and re-upholstered vintage furniture create a warm atmosphere. Meadow Cottage has been lovingly restored, with a careful attention to detail, leaving every nook and cranny perfectly designed for your comfort.

Downstairs there is a modern, fully-equipped kitchen with lovely views across the garden. The lounge boasts comfortable sofas and a wood burner, creating the ultimate cosy ambience, making this cottage perfect even on rainy days! Within the living room, there is large dining table, perfect for entertaining, particularly if you choose to rent both cottages, then the whole group can come together and enjoy sociable meals.

Within the cottage itself, there are two bright and spacious bedrooms. Both located on the top floor, there is a large double and a bunk room with handmade beds suited to both children and adults. These two rooms share a family bathroom. The final bedroom can be found out in the garden, within a Shepherd’s hut. With a double bed and a wood-burning stove, nothing could be cosier!

The cottage is just a few-minutes’ walk into Wimborne’s town centre and the rest of Dorset is within easy reach by car, with the stunning Jurassic Coast nearby. Meadow Cottage has something for everyone, the perfect base for exploring all that Dorset has to offer.

Reviews

  • Cosy and comfortable

    Created on 23/11/2018

    Meadow Cottage is so idyllic and beautiful. Incredibly well equipped, cosy and comfortable. There was everything we could possibly have needed, and thoughtful little touches (like bread, eggs, homemade apple juice and cake on arrival) made us feel so at home. We were blown away with how perfect and lovely it was. A long weekend wasn't enough to enjoy the cottage and the beautiful towns and coast around, we'll just have to come back!

  • We will definately be back!

    Created on 09/11/2018

    A beautiful cottage and a perfect base for exploring all Dorset has to offer. From arrival to departure the thoughtful touches helped make our holiday brilliant. The brownies were devine and the eggs and bread ensured we had a delicious meal on the first night.

  • A lovely cottage

    Created on 23/08/2018

    The perfect place for 3 generations and a dog! We loved the Shepherd's hut and I enjoyed an early morning cup of tea and a read of the paper in there while the kids were in the house! Tastefully decorated and well-equipped and handy being close to the town whilst also feeling like we were in the Dorset countryside.

  • AMAZING!

    Created on 16/08/2018

    Shrieks of delight as we explored the wonderful Cottage (and that was mainly from mum!!). What a fantastic place - homely yet with all the mod cons. The veg basket was a wonderful addition too - our meals were based round the lovely vegetables and fruit. We'll be back!

  • Wonderful cottage

    Created on 09/03/2018

    A blissful retreat in a quiet, secluded location yet within a very short walk of the centre of the delightful little town of Wimborne, with all that it has to offer.

  • :)

    Created on 19/01/2018

    Lovely characterful cottages in an incredible location and setting. The best of the countryside within steps of town.
