The Gate House, a spacious architectural gem has been sympathetically restored and now offers stylish interiors and wonderful grounds. High ceilings, cosy nooks, sash windows and a wonderful turned wooden staircase, blends seamlessly the owners passion and keen eye for interior design.
Being tucked away at the outskirts of historic Wimborne Minster gives this wonderful property a rural feeling but is within a short stroll of the vibrant town square and its bars and restaurants.
The property offers 7 beautiful bedrooms sleeping 16 guests in style and comfort, a grand sitting room, large kitchen with beautiful Aga with separate breakfast room and a formal dining room offers the perfect space to come together over dinner and a drink or two. An entertainment room with underfloor heating houses a large 75" flat screen TV connected to a Netflix account, with a complimentary £20 to spend on Apple movies. You then step outside through bi-fold doors onto a terrace which has a hot tub. To make guests stay extra special, a welcome basket of local, homemade treats is provided on arrival, including freshly baked bread from the local bakery, locally sourced free-range eggs and jam, milk in the fridge and a selection of Dorset teas and ground coffee.
What makes this area so special? Visit the Minster, and in summer months view its remarkable chained library. For the more adventurous, the Stour Valley Way and Hardy Way walking routes pass through Wimborne. Kayak or watch kingfishers on the River Stour. The National Trust’s Kingston Lacy estate is a five minute drive from the town centre. Or visit Badbury Rings, a spectacular iron age hill fort. Step back in time and stroll around the model village just 5 minutes away!
Within 30 minutes drive you will find Sandbanks peninsular, with miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, and the chance to enjoy a wide variety of water based activities. From here take the iconic chain ferry to Swanage, a glorious Victorian seaside town. If you are looking for culture, Kingston Lacy, a National Trust house and gardens are well worth a visit or take in a show or concert at the ’Art Deco’ Tivoli theatre a 5 minute walk away.
