Holly Cottage is a delightful 4 bedroom detached period thatched cottage, situated on a prominent corner site, in the heart of Colehill, approximately 1.5 miles from Wimborne town centre. Dating back to the 18th century, Holly Cottage was originally a 2 bedroom cottage but was substantially extended in the 1990s and now the spacious living accommodation extends to 1775 square feet, arranged over two floors with one staircase.

The original cottage was traditionally built of cob with lime rendered walls, whilst the modern extension has cavity walls with matching colour wash render, under a high thatched ridged roof. The cottage is connected to all main services with the hot water and central heating being provided by mains gas. The windows are timber framed casement windows.

Local shopping facilities and schools of varying denominations are available close by in Colehill. Wimborne town centre offers a good range of shopping facilities including a Waitrose store. The major east Dorset towns of Poole and Bournemouth are about 20 minutes driving distance.

Holly Cottage retains much character and charm, enjoying good ceiling heights. Particular features include a floor-to-ceiling brick inglenook fireplace with an inset wood burning stove, exposed beams and timbers. The kitchen is well presented with oak working surfaces and a range of appliances. The three first floor bedrooms are all doubles and the ground floor bedroom four could easily be used as a study or music room. Outside, while there is no garage, there is excellent parking facilities. Timber framed cabin workshop/office/studio. The front of the cottage faces due south, as do the gardens.


From Wimborne, proceed along Leigh Road which then becomes Wimborne Road West. Turn left into Hayes Lane and Number 95 can be found at the top, on the left hand side, on the junction of Hayes Lane and Middlehill Road.
