A beautifully located Grade II Listed cottage enjoying complete privacy


Location

Whitefield Cottage is located in a private, tranquil setting in the hamlet of Whitefield which lies close to the village of Morden. The village has a public house (The Cock & Bottle), a village hall and St Mary's Church which was rebuilt in the 19th Century. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the location is that, despite its tranquil, rural setting, the cottage is only 7 miles from Poole which is easily accessible via the A35 Poole to Dorchester road which lies 1½ miles away. The market town of Wareham (5 miles) also offers an excellent range of facilities. Both Poole and Wareham offer Intercity train services to London (Waterloo) the journey taking approximately 2 hours. There are superb sporting facilities throughout the area, together with excellent independent and state schools..
