Property SummaryA simply beautiful and charming village residence located in the heart of the sought after Chalke Valley offering a wealth of accommodation that has been tastefully updated by the current owners.
Set within the small and unspoiled village of Ebbesbourne Wake at the western end of the Chalke Valley in the Cranborne Chase and West Wilts AONB. Local amenities include a well renowned public house, church and village hall. The nearby village of Broad Chalke offers a brilliant range of village amenities including highly regarded primary school, post office and stores, church and doctors surgery.
The nearby North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is famed for the iconic cobbled street of Gold Hill and rich history going back to the times of King Alfred.

Dial Cottage is a simply gorgeous detached period cottage full of charm and character that has been tastefully updated by the current owners to form a delightful village residence that is located in the delightful Chalke Valley.
At one time under the ownership of the Earl of Pembroke, one part of the cottage was used as a forge, and in the late 1800's, a post office. In token to its name, a large original sundial dated 1720 adorns the wall located on the front elevation.
Away from the village road, the cottage occupies a private, tucked away position close to a Chapel and enjoys sunny, warming and rural views across neighbouring farmland and Barrow Hill.
From the village road, a gravelled driveway is present and in turn offers ample parking for several vehicles and also leads to the detached double garage which has power, lighting, two up and over doors as well as a dark room.
The rear garden totals just under 0.5 of an acre and offers a stunning outside space that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons. A pergola with vine covers a well-placed terrace that offers a beautiful view over the garden and also leads to a further paved seating area which provides yet again a perfect place to take in the views.
An extensive and established lawn is present, the majority of which is bordered by mature, colourful and intelligent planting and shrubbery. In addition there are productive apple trees, vegetable beds, sheds and a summer house.
