Hartley Cottage was built in 1997 and offers an excellent choice of holiday venue for a larger family. This attractive detached thatched cottage is situated at the head of a private gravel drive which serves a small selection of homes within the village of Winterborne Kingston. The rooms are light and airy and reclaimed timber and brickwork feature throughout the property. There is a downstairs single bedroom which coupled with the hand basin and toilet may be especially of interest if a member of your party would benefit from ground floor accommodation (bathroom is first floor). In the sitting room there is a large inglenook fireplace and the kitchen benefits from a conservatory added to the side of it which can sit eight people. Perfect for a morning cup of tea whilst reading the daily newspaper and watching the birds visiting in the garden.The main dining room comfortably seats eight people and,in addition to this, the property has a 'snug' available which can serve as another lounge and includes a television with the freesat service. The pretty and established English cottage garden surrounds with lawns, shrubs, decking and a fenced pond. A gate accessed from the rear of the garden leads to a bridle path with access to rambler renowned footpaths which spread for miles over Dorset fields. The village has a public house, the Greyhound Inn, which serves homemade foodand a 14th century church.
