Wise Cottage is a 250 year old cottage with a boutique feel and sweeping views over fields, situated in a beautiful village near Shaftesbury, Dorset. There is use of the heated swimming pool in our garden a few yards from the cottage.
The cottage sleeps four, 2 bedrooms, 1 large master bedroom with a super kingsize bed and a small bedroom with adult bunks (plus a guest bed for a fifth guest).
Wood burner, super fast Wifi and garden.
There is a large sitting room with oak dining table and contemporary chairs, a well fitted kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
The main bedroom has an upholstered Super kingsize bed with Vi Spring mattress, high quality microfibre duvets and bed linens. The second bedroom has full size bunk beds. Polished wooden floors, Roger Oates runners, sisal flooring and soft Moroccan rugs make up the flooring in the cottage. The bathroom has a pressurised shower and bath. Plenty of towels are provided as well as soaps and shampoo. The bathroom is situated downstairs opposite the kitchen.
The garden is situated up steps from the cottage, it is probably not easily accessed by anyone disabled or infirm. It is a cottage garden, not highly manicured but with wonderful views in every direction. A table and chairs and a barbecue and tongs are also provided. There is a side access to the garden and it is fenced, so will contain a not overly ambitious dog.
The cottage has a Samsung 32" smart TV with all the catch up services as well as Netflix and Amazon, super fast broad band, a small office with desk. Mobile reception is good, but patchy in the downstairs rooms.
There is a wood burner and kindling/logs for the first night or two (bags of logs and kindling are sold at the shop a few yards from the cottage), iPod dock, Roberts radio, smart TV, towels, high quality linen, bathrobes, organic luxury range of shampoo, body and hand wash.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all china and cutlery, pans, casserole dishes, salad bowls, a Nespresso coffee maker (with coffee capsules!) and there is a supply of tea bags, coffee, sugar, olive oil and salt and pepper to start you off. We always leave a breakfast pack of fresh local bread, home made jam, butter and milk.
A folding guest bed can be put up in the sitting room on master bedroom for a fifth person which is fine for a night or two, but unless a child, it is not ideally suited for five adults.
The whole cottage and garden is available for your use. There are stunning views from the garden and wonderful walks.

A continental breakfast is always left at the cottage - fresh bread, butter, jam, milk, tea, coffee and sugar.
We offer a meal service. Home cooked meals can be ordered, such as chicken curry, lasagne, cottage pie and can be left warming in the oven for your arrival. We can stock the fridge in advance of your arrival, take in a Waitrose or Tesco order. We can provide any wines that you would like to preorder. We can organise baby sitting, dog walking - anything to make your stay easier and more enjoyable. Please do discuss at any time up until three days before arrival.
The cottage has a winding staircase and there are steps up to the garden, so it is perhaps not suitable for anyone very infirm. Very young children will need to be watched on the stairs and on the ramp up to the garden.
There is a folder at the cottage with information on the numerous places there are to visit in the area and further afield.
We can provide a cot and a high chair (cost £9 each for whole period of stay).
We can put up a folding guest bed in the sitting room for a fifth person, but the cottage is ideally suited for four people.
