About Middlebere FarmhouseA picture-perfect thatch cottage with modern rustic interiors, close to Poole Harbour.
A 16th-century reed thatched cottage, Middlebere Farmhouse probably started life as a longhouse. Inside, original features like its two inglenook fireplaces with log effect gas stoves, give the cottage a real sense of history, but modern adaptations make the holiday home accessible to all.
Right on your doorstep is the RSPB Arne Reserve, with its wealth of rare bird life, which is best observed from the Middlebere Farm Hide; a short walk from the cottage. Beyond it, the landscape continues to impress with large areas of open heathland and ancient oak woodland. You’ll be amazed by the diversity in the area.
Located at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, you’re well placed to enjoy this world famous stretch of coastline, with its secluded coves, towering cliffs and beautiful beaches. Just down the road from the cottage is the market town of Wareham. Enjoy its traditional pubs, shops selling local produce and, of course, it’s weekly markets.
