Forge Cottage, Dewlish, Dorchester, Dorset DT2 7LR

A rare opportunity to buy an enchanting period cottage centrally situated in the beautiful and sought after village of Dewlish.


Forge Cottage nestles in the heart of the peaceful and rural village of Dewlish. Originally built in the early 1700's as the Blacksmiths house, the unlisted attached house still retains many of the original qualities and features in keeping with its period heritage including a double garage, workshop and stable which is reached from the garage. The house offers versatile accommodation offering a spacious and flexible living space still maintaining the charm of a traditional cottage with a sunny conservatory overlooking the garden. There are exposed beams in the sitting room and 2 of the bedrooms, a wood burner in the sitting room, large fireplace in the dining room and attractive sash windows. There is not only a feeling of warmth but also space as most of the rooms, hallways and landings offer generous space. The cottage will appeal to a variety of buyers; the peaceful location will surely appeal to both professional and retired couples yet within easy reach to nearby towns such as Dorchester and Blandford.


The cottage fronts onto the village lane with borders enclosed by a period metal fence. Steps lead through a gate to the bespoke timber front doors. The property is festooned with climbing plants including roses, wisteria and honeysuckle. The garage is attached to the cottage and provides off road parking for a car in front of the garage doors with access to the back garden.

To the rear of the house, accessed from the door either in the kitchen or the conservatory, is a very private place to sit and enjoy the mature gardens which are home to two ponds, a large magnolia tree and many varieties of fruit trees as well as a plethora of planted flowering shubs and borders.


The house is situated amongst some of Dorset's prettiest rolling countryside, Dewlish is a small village with its own public house and is within Thomas Hardye school catchment. Nearby Puddletown has a range of local amenities including first and middle schools, a public house, general store and post office, a doctors' surgery and veterinary surgery. A much broader range of facilities can be found in Dorchester (7 miles) for education, entertainment, health and leisure. Dorchester Town is most famous for being the County Town of Dorset. The town also lies to the West of the Purbeck Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast is only a few miles away. Sport in the area includes golf at Came Down, Dorchester Cricket, Football and Rugby Clubs and Sailing in the Olympic waters of Portland and Weymouth. Communications are excellent, with main line railway links to London Waterloo from Dorchester, Wool and Poole, cross channel services at Poole and Weymouth, an airport at Bournemouth.


From Blandford take the A354 to Dorchester until you come to the village of Milborne St Andrew. Continue into the village and after passing the garage take the next turning right, signposted to Dewlish. Continue into Dewlish, past the church and at the crossroads, Forge Cottage will be found across the road on the left hand side.
