Apple and Plum are a pair of traditional 18th century cottages set within their own walled garden and adjoining orchard on the Deans Court estate. Recently redecorated the cottages have a contemporary yet homely feel. Recently fully redecorated in Farrow & Ball contemporary colours and reupholstered vintage furniture provide the perfect space in which to relax and unwind. Take a drink, or sketchpad, to the terrace and enjoy the view across the Stour Valley, where the cows browse on the meadow by the cricket pitch and the towers of Wimborne Minster hover above our ‘crinkle-crankle’ kitchen garden wall.
Apple has an Inglenook fireplace, Plum an elm table for ten – perfect if you take both cottages together. Sisal carpets lead to simple, beautiful bedrooms where linen blinds frame the meadow views. Modern, fully equipped country kitchens making cooking easy and fun. Both cottages sleep 6, however Plum has a special twist, and the third bedroom is in the cosy, converted Shepherd’s Hut in its garden.
Although within the Deans Court estate the cottages are only a 5-minute walk into Wimborne town centre and half an hour drive from the Jurassic Coast and blue flag beaches of Sandbanks and Bournemouth.
