The highlights
  • The estate has its own café and home store on site, serving coffee and light meals made on the premises.
  • The market town of Wimborne Minster is a lovely one to discover, and has some great places to eat, drink and be entertained.
  • Having the shepherd’s hut, as well as a twin room with bunks and a double, offers lots of flexibility for your family or group.
  • You’re less than 20 minutes’ drive from the coast at Plum Cottage – head into Poole or go further to discover the likes of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

The detail

On the outskirts of Wimborne Minster in Dorset, Plum Cottage is located on the attractive Deans Court estate, just seven miles from the coast at Poole. This charming cottage incorporates a special surprise – a cute shepherd’s hut in the garden, providing cosy accommodation for two.

The estate enjoys scenic views across the Stour Valley, with the namesake river not far away. Also within walking distance is the picturesque centre of Wimborne Minster – café terraces around the main square, and a smattering of restaurants and independent shops make it a pleasant place to spend some time.

Dating from the 18th century, the cottage itself feels immediately homely, with vintage furnishings and rustic touches adding to the vibe. There is room for ten at the elm dining table so you could even invite a few friends over. A welcome basket with local treats like bread, jam, free-range eggs, tea and coffee will be waiting for you on arrival.

The country kitchen is equipped with all you’re likely to need during your stay, while an inviting lounge provides a TV and a comfy, cushion-laden sofa by the fireplace. A double and a twin bedroom can be found in the cottage, the latter furnished with bunk beds adding an extra element of fun for the younger members of the family.

Someone, however, is likely to have their eyes set on the shepherd’s hut which offers a small but cleverly designed retreat for a couple, as well as a little more privacy. There are plenty of cottages, and quite a few shepherd’s huts, but it’s rare to find both together, so this property is definitely a bit of a find.

Set in walled gardens with an adjacent orchard, Plum Cottage enjoys a pleasing setting. You can enjoy some time sitting out in the garden, appreciating the peace and quiet. When you do head into town, you can visit the miniature Model Town, Tivoli Theatre or, of course, the Minster itself – as well as an impressive number of local pubs and bars.

The wonderful beaches of the Jurassic Coast, and many of Dorset’s heritage properties are within reach too. Wimborne Minster lies around halfway between Salisbury and Dorchester, each less than 45 minutes away, and just half an hour from Bournemouth, giving you plenty to choose from when planning your days out.
