Pound Cottage is a charming and locally historic cottage, which was once part of the old village pound, with records dating back to the 1760’s, where stray animals were impounded by the Lord of the Manor of Stoborough. It is set on the edge of a private unmade lane which leads to a farm, and the only traffic congestion are the cows walking past on their way in for milking. Pound Cottage provides the perfect bolthole to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and offers an ideal getaway for couples seeking to explore this area, or for families to enjoy a holiday together.
The unspoilt location has many great walks, cycle routes and destinations to explore. Stoborough Heath, Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve and the RSBP Arne Nature Reserve all offer breath-taking scenery for nature lovers and keen walkers.
