This outstanding period cottage, thought to date from the early 19th Century, is located in a Conservation Area in the popular and picturesque village of Church Knowle and stands in a secluded spot in the centre of the village, within 500 metres of open country. The village is served by a 13th Century Church and a Public House.

Plumtree Cottage has been extensively renovated throughout by the current owners in recent years retaining a wealth of character, yet offers a delightful easy living style with exceptionally light and spacious accommodation. It is approached by a driveway, bound by hedging to reveal an attractively landscaped garden with well stocked mature flower and shrub borders.

Church Knowle lies in a valley approximately 1 mile from the historic village of Corfe Castle, which has a general store, post office and bakery.  Much of the surrounding area is designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty and incorporates a World Heritage Coastline. There are a wealth of dramatic coastal walks nearby, with Kimmeridge Bay and the stunning Lulworth Cove only a few miles away. Parts of Church Knowle date back Centuries with many buildings of historic interest, alongside modern additions which have been sensitively integrated into the village. The market town of Wareham is about 3 miles away and has  a main line rail link to London Waterloo, approx 2.5 hours.

The delightful cottage garden at the front welcomes you to Plumtree Cottage. The spacious acommodation is particularly light throughout and enjoys a pleasant Southerly aspect with views of the garden from all principal rooms. The cottage has a wealth of charm and character including original flagstone flooring and some wood shutters to the ground floor and beamed ceilings. The spacious sitting room and dining room each have a brick fireplace, the former having a fitted woodburning stove. The kitchen has a range of modern cream units with wood worktops and butler sink, exposed stone wall and a stable door leads you back to the front garden. At the opposite end of the cottage, there is a cloakroom and utility room with sink and plumbing for washing machine and floor standing oil fired central heating boiler, a side door giving access to the driveway and detached garage. On the first floor there are two generously sized bedrooms, a bathroom and separate cloakroom providing facilities for all bedrooms. Accessed from the two bedrooms on the first floor, there are wooden staircases which take you to two further bedrooms on the second floor, each with reduced headroom but ample room in each for double beds and bedroom furniture.   

The secluded South facing garden at the front has a paved pathway to the door, lawned section and is generously stocked with mature flower and shrub borders, providing interest throughout the year. There is a paved terrace and apple, pear and two plum trees. The driveway has parking for two cars and leads to a detached garage.  

Viewing is strictly by appointment through the Agents, Corbens, 01929 422284.
