This Chocolate Box Cottage on the Street in Milton Abbas is one of 36 almost identical thatched cottages originally intended to house two families. Built from cob and previously painted yellow, with each house originally fronted by a lawn and a horse chestnut tree between each dwelling.


If you've dreamt of living in a chocolate-box cottage hideaway, nestled in beautiful countryside with a welcoming pub on the doorstep, Milton Abbas is the location for you. The Village is a picture perfect, archetypal English village. Situated between Blandford Forum and Dorchester, sitting in a pretty wooded valley, with its whitewashed cob and thatch cottages it is a photographers' dream. The famous landscape gardener Capability Brown worked with renowned architect William chambers on the design, creating a visually stunning village that some consider one of the first planned settlements in England.

Then owner of Milton Abbey House, Joseph Damer, felt the existing village of Middleton, was disturbing his rural idyll. So the new village of Milton Abbas was created with 36 almost identical cottages, each designed to house two families. Originally painted yellow with a chestnut tree between each cottage.
