On the edge of historic Wimborne, a beautifully renovated Georgian house with bags of space for families or a big group of friends. Charming owners Ali and William live further down the lane at Dean’s Court and the front windows frame views of the iron gates and mature trees of their lovely estate. Though the elegant, chalky-white façade suggests a compact building, you step through an arched doorway into a spacious architectural gem. High ceilings, cosy nooks, sash windows and a wonderful turned wooden staircase rub shoulders with Ali’s flair for interior design. Vibrant kilims brighten white wooden floors, while patterned French linen blinds look great with walls painted in delicate shades of blue and grey. The seven peaceful bedrooms are filled with antique furniture and overlook the lawned garden or the estate; traditional bathrooms are stocked with fluffy white towels and fragrant Savon de Marseilles stuff. Stroll to the farmer’s market for local delights and enjoy delicious, candlelit feasts in the theatrical, red dining room. The ancient Minster is a short walk and little ones will love the dinky ‘Model Village’.
