A delightful detached 3-bed period cottage

Manor Cottage is a charming detached period property, with three bedrooms, situated in the small rural village of Horton, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. The cottage is believed to date from 1770 and backs onto the village’s historic Church of St Wolfrida.

Inside you will find welcoming, comfortable accommodation with plenty of period character. There is a generous, 23ft drawing room, which includes a fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove and a second larger fireplace, which has now been turned into a feature nook. There is also a formal dining room, and a kitchen, which is fitted with cream units to base and wall level, solid wood worktops and integrated appliances.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, including the master with its en suite shower room. The other two bedrooms benefit from their own washbasins. There is also a family bathroom, with an over-bath shower.


To the front of the property there is a small garden, with a pathway leading to the front entrance. To the side, gated access leads to a courtyard and a workshop, while to the rear there is a sunny south-facing cottage garden with an elevated terrace area, plus a wide variety of shrubs, herbaceous perenials and a laurel hedge. Below this is an area of covered terrace, ideal for alfresco dining. To the right of the house is a little used pedestrian path to the church with the garage and further area of garden on the other side.


The property is located in the small village of Horton, surrounded by beautiful countryside on the edge of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are several local amenities in the nearby village of Three Legged Cross, including a post office and several shops, while Wimborne Minster is five miles to the south, with its range of shops, restaurants, pubs, cafés and other amenities. The larger town of Bournemouth and the city of Salisbury are both easily accessible by road, providing a wealth of amenities and leisure facilities. There are a variety of schools both state and private in the local area.


From Salisbury, take the A354 south for 11 and a half miles, and arriving at a roundabout, take the first exit signposted for Ringwood, onto the B3081. After three and a half miles turn left to stay on the B3081, following the sign for Ringwood and Wimborne and at the next junction, turn right onto the B3078. Continue on the B3078 for three miles before turning left opposite the Horton Inn. Continue for a mile, and you will find the property on your righthand side.
