Lavender Cottage is a Grade II Listed property with origins in the 18th Century. The cottage is built in the vernacular style from local stone under a tiled roof. A single storey modern extension houses the kitchen. An unusual period feature is the sloping and curved end wall.
The ground floor is semi open plan with two reception rooms providing spacious and flexible accommodation. Both rooms have ornamental feature fireplaces. From here, steps head up to the glazed double doors opening to the kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of painted wooden cupboards.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms both with built in wardrobes and one with a window seat, and a bathroom.
The cottage has gas central heating provided by an energy efficient boiler installed in 2012 and double or secondary glazing to major windows.
The garden is on two levels. Just outside the kitchen is a paved terrace edged by a lavender bed. The upper level is mainly laid to lawn with a good sized summerhouse at the top giving southerly views over the rooftops to the woodlands around Sherborne Castle.
