This beautiful Victorian cottage is in the street at the bottom of Shaftesbury's famous Gold Hill with the town just a ten minute walk away. At the same time it has stunning views over a huge garden (with a 250 year old Tulip Tree) and a panorama of the country around Melbury Beacon.

The space
The cottage still has atmosphere while having all modern amenities including a utility room with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The kitchen has an induction hob, coffee maker and microwave
The conservatory is huge and the views over the garden and the Tulip Tree make it special. There is a sitting area outside on the patio

I love the countryside, water ( sea or lake) and places with history. Dorset is a great county in which to live and I enjoy its spectacular coast and walks. I spend a lot of time in beautiful France and speak French. I work in the voluntary sector. I am also a qualified English language teacher.
