Pound Cottage is a delightful detached converted stable which has been lovingly refurbished to make the most of the space. Located in the village of Stoborough, just a short walk from the historic Saxon town of Wareham, this property sleeps 2 adults plus 2 children, and offers the perfect retreat for couples or small families.
The stable style front door opens into the bright living area, complete with vaulted ceilings and splendid beams. There is a newly fitted modern kitchen, with large fridge/freezer, electric cooker with integrated grill, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and a range of units with a breakfast bar with seating for two. The lounge area has ample comfortable seating, with a modern smart TV and wide south-facing patio doors, which fill this room with plenty of natural light. The doors give access to the delightful patio area with a large dining table and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining in the summer days and warmer evenings, and in winter months guests can enjoy a relaxing and warming evening sat in the cosy lounge area.
To the rear of the cottage is a sunny double bedroom and modern shower room with enclosed shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin and a utility cupboard with a washing machine.
From the living room, rather steep stairs lead up to a beautiful vaulted mezzanine area with low ceilings, exposed beams and two single beds. This area provides a great space for slightly older children.
The pretty paved garden wraps around the cottage; there is a large terrace area with a table and chairs, perfect for relaxing in the summer sun, after a day exploring all this stunning area has to offer. There is a parking area the front for 1 to 2 cars.

I stayed at Pound Cottage with my husband and daughters who are 14 and 9. We’ve been to Dorset before but had not visited Stoborough, We were not disappointed! It was a beautiful cottage very well presented with everything we needed in the kitchen and even a full size BBQ in the sunny courtyard garden (which we used a lot) It was a good base for us to go on adventures from cycling to walking, kayaking and dinner in the local town just a few minutes walk away, the kids loved seeing the dairy cows go past the back wall every morning and night and even got to stroke them, they were so friendly, a highlight of every day. We were so impressed with Pound Cottage and it’s beauty we tried to book again for the summer but it would seem we are not alone with our love for it and it’s fully booked!!! I would highly recommend visiting, it’s a lovely corner of our beautiful country I wish I could stay forever but unfortunately work calls. We will be back to stay at Pound Cottage and look forward to more exploring of the area as there is so much more to find. If I could rate it I would give a 5 ⭐️ for everything it was quite simply fabulous.
We had a wonderful time at Pound Cottage. The space had been fitted beautifully and thoughtfully, and was cosy and comfortable for a couple and a pup. We both managed to “work from home” happily - and the wifi was brilliant! It’s a lovely location, close enough to Wareham for a morning walk to grab a coffee. We’re already looking forward to coming back.
