Dormers is a pretty thatched cottage dating back to the 17th century in Tarrant Hinton, in the heart of the Tarrant Valley in Dorset. The property has lots of period charm, and has been extended over the years, most recently by the current owners.

The house now provides spacious accommodation including a good-sized drawing room and an excellent kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and study as well as flexible accommodation upstairs with three good bedrooms.
