A charming thatched character cottage in this sought after Dorset village


Rose Lea enjoys a delightful location immediately opposite the church in picturesque Witchampton, one of the area's most sought after villages. The village is about 5 miles from the popular Minster town of Wimborne offering excellent amenities including shopping, with Waitrose and Co-Operative supermarkets, cafes restaurants and bars, the Tivoli theatre/ cinema, and many local community activities. Witchampton village has a local shop, social club and primary school. There are state and independent schools in the wider area, including the village first school, Canford School, Dumpton, Clayesmore and Queen Elizabeth's in Wimborne. The popular holiday town of Bournemouth with excellent shopping entertainment and recreational facilities and fine sandy bathing beaches is approximately 15 miles away, and Poole harbour with its watersports and further beaches is about 13 miles away. The A31 which leads on to the M27 and M3 to London can be joined at Ashley Heath about 11.5miles away and there are regular services to London Waterloo from Bournemouth and Poole train stations.


Rose Lea is a detached cottage having elevations of mainly painted brick and render with exposed beams, under a thatched and partly flat roof. The accommodation would now benefit from complete modernisation and internal redecoration, yet offers excellent potential to create a unique character home.

A front door with thatched porch over leads into the entrance hall, with a small larder off. The sitting room has a beamed ceiling, stone fire surround with bressumer beam over and cupboard to one side. The dining room has a tiled fire surround and double aspect windows to front and side. The kitchen has a stainless steel sink and worktops with several cupboards under. The ground floor bathroom has a panelled bath, wash basin and w.c. A steep staircase gives access to the two first floor bedrooms, one with airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder.

The cottage has a delightful view across to the church immediately opposite. A narrow gated driveway gives access to the front door and also to a concrete hardstanding with summerhouse. There is a small Garage/ Workshop with timber double doors. There are lawned gardens to both front and rear.

Square Footage: 752 sq ft


From Wimborne proceed north on the B3078 Cranborne Road. After about 4 miles, take the left hand turn signposted Witchampton. Follow Witchampton Lane along this road down the hill, over a small bridge and into the village. Continue through the village to the church on the left, and Rose Lea will be found immediately opposite.
