The
Experience

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.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jonathan Cornish

  • 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 10-4. 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.
