Adorable cottages in pastoral peace with views to Wimbourne Minster; cook organic veg in country kitchens. Blue flag beaches are close

Two chic cottages in a majestic estate flanked by orchards and organic vegetable gardens. Take a drink – or sketchpad – to the terrace for views of Wimbourne Minster, distant cricket matches and the birds over Stour Meadows; sunsets are stunning. Exposed stonework reflects the 13th-century origins of these Georgian gardeners' cottages. Clean-lined interiors reflect 21st-century design. Spotlights gleam off brick walls washed in porcelain white, a rustic yet contemporary canvas for original oils, vintage chairs, oriental cushions. Apple has an inglenook fireplace, Plum an elm table for ten – perfect if you take both cottages together. Sisal carpets lead to simple bedrooms where linen blinds frame meadow views. Cook and eat in modern country kitchens then step out to a private garden lined with fruit trees; a large gravel patio is shared by the two cottages. Plum comes with its own shepherd's hut: duck egg blue walls and a French enamelled wood-burner. An easy walk from historic Wimbourne, a short drive from blue flag beaches at Poole and Bournemouth, and perfect for big groups who can book both cottages and the nearby Gate House.

  • Situated within the grounds of Deans Court, these C18th farm-hands’ cottages have been renovated to provide contemporary comfort in a rural setting.
  • To get the cottages you will drive past the walled-kitchen garden, where vegetables are grown for our veg baskets.
  • You can order a basket of vegetables from the Shop - and you can also ask for a tour of the garden with one of our gardeners.
  • We use our produce in the home-made food at our cafe, served Monday to Saturday 10 to 4. Make sure you visit to enjoy salads, tarts and cakes ! Fresh eggs and honey are available in our shop, too.
  • An easy walk from historic Wimborne, with a great selection of restaurants and shops. (Including a Waitrose)
  • For large groups, we also have The Gate House (sleeping 14) and we can arrange for all levels of catering as suits your needs - get in touch for more info.
