Property details

Magna Cottage is a 300-year-old detached thatched, flint property nestles in a secluded valley at the end of a no-through-road on the Cranborne Chase, a mile from Ashmore in Dorset.
Perfect for a large family gathering or group of friends, dogs are welcome too.

This stunning holiday home is ideal for all seasons with an impressive inglenook fireplace and open fire for the cooler months, and an acre of enclosed, lawned, orchard garden for children and pets to run around in during Spring and Summer.

Situated in an ideal location for an outdoor break in Dorset, with plenty of walking opportunities; from the cottage there is direct access to forest walks and mountain bike trails and it is conveniently located for the Wessex Ridgeway walk. There are also very good gourmet pubs in the area.
