Wishing Well Cottage is connected to mains drainage, electricity and water, and has LPG heating and timber double glazed windows.

Holt is a sought after village with a pub/restaurant (The Old Inn), about 4 miles north of the market town of Wimborne Minster. The adjacent village of Furzehill has a post office/shop and The Stocks Inn.

A wide thatched entrance porch (with down timbers and stone floor) leads to an impressive reception hall with oak flooring. There is a cloakroom with WC and oak vanity unit (with inset Victorian style wash basin).

The spacious sitting room has a superb brick and stone open fireplace (with bressummer beam and remote-controlled wood burner style gas stove) and exposed ceiling timbers. There is a separate dining room (with oak flooring) to the front, along with a comprehensively fitted study.

The beautifully presented kitchen/breakfast room has newly fitted solid oak work surfaces, a ceramic butler's sink, an excellent range of base and wall units, a large matching dresser, a central island, Britannia range cooker (with 6-burner hob unit and 2 ovens), stainless steel extractor unit, and integrated larder fridge, drawer freezer, dishwasher and Neff microwave unit.

A door leads to a rear porch with tiled floor, worktop, cupboard, fridge beneath, stable door to outside, recently installed wall mounted Worcester gas boiler, and cupboard housing a recently installed water softener. The separate utility room has a worktop, stainless steel sink, cupboards, space for washing machine and dryer, and broom cupboard.

From both the living room and the kitchen/breakfast room, double doors lead to a superb Amdega conservatory with a feature roofline, high ceiling, large windows (with opening casements and oak sills), and casement doors to the entertaining terrace. The conservatory enjoys superb views over the garden and adjacent farmland.
