Overview

Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Situated in the charming Dorset town of Wimborne Minster, this traditional 18th century cottage is the perfect holiday retreat. Set within a walled garden and adjoining the orchard on the Deans Court estate, Stour Valley Cottage offers ample space for six guests to rest and restore, escaping the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

Paired with Meadow 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.

This beautiful house has been lovingly restored throughout. Chalk white walls, Farrow & Ball paints and re-upholstered vintage furniture create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, that is incredibly easy to settle in to. Guests can enjoy sweeping views across the Stour Valley, with the rooftops of Wimborne Minster adding to the charming atmosphere. Whether you are curled by the fire in the lounge, preparing food in the kitchen or sipping a glass of wine on the terrace, every aspect of this cottage is relaxing.  

Downstairs a modern, fully-equipped, country kitchen is the heart of the home, with a vintage dining table creating an easy and fun space to spend quality time as a family. Guests can order produce baskets from the estate, including honey, home-laid eggs and organic fruit and vegetables, all produced within the grounds, adding a unique touch to all your favourite recipes. The lounge boasts comfortable sofas and an Inglenook fireplace with a wood burner, creating the ultimate cosy ambience, making this cottage perfect even on rainy days!

Throughout the house there are three beautiful bedrooms with linen blinds framing the picturesque meadow views. There is one en-suite, double room on the ground floor, as well as two spacious doubles on the first floor that share a bathroom.

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. Stour Valley Cottage has something for everyone, the perfect base for exploring all that Dorset has to offer.

Reviews

  • Great Place

    Created on 15/02/2019

    A great place to stay to get to know Wimborne. Conveniently located and with wonderful views. Everybody was very helpful and friendly – nothing was too much trouble, even a private lesson in how to use Netflix!

  • Exceptional. Thank you to everyone!

    Created on 26/10/2018

    A brilliant cottage with a lovely, secure garden, which our 7-month Irish Terrier, Eimear, adored. We were a little embarrassed when she chased Lady Hanham off the premises :-(. Eimear also enjoyed some of the windfalls, as did we - apples for pudding everyday. We have even purchased a copy of the very good apple cookery book in the cottage.
    We were lucky to be able to give Eimear her first taste of the sea on the last day of 'summer' at Studland Bay with lots of other dogs and another taste, by way of contrast, at West Bay, where the colours of the cliffs, sand and dog merged together - the perfect camouflage.
    A great discovery this time was the 'veg box' from the kitchen garden.

  • Will be booking again

    Created on 26/09/2018

    An absolutely delightful and well equipped cottage - the perfect place from which to explore the beautiful Dorset countryside and being only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Wimborne eating out and shopping are easy.

  • We had great fun

    Created on 20/09/2018

    This is our second visit to the Cottage so that in itself is a great review. A girls trip in the countryside with a pretty town with lively bars and restaurants just a short walk. Hosts were very friendly and each cottage is supplied with a food hamper .... produce from the Estate.

  • Absolutely lovely

    Created on 27/07/2018

    Very relaxing in a lovely situation. Well equipped we wanted for nothing.
