"Approximately 30 years ago I moved from a rural Dorset village to central Dorchester. Once behind the street door on High West Street, Stable Cottage provides the sense of calm rural idyll as the front buildings absorb the noise of the traffic. It provides an escape to the country while offering all the amenities and conveniences of the unique County Town with its well known market. The courtyard, with its fountain, flower beds and well established climbing plants, enjoys much privacy and creates an ideal, sunny space for outdoor dining. Steps lead up into the back, walled "secret" garden with established fruit trees. The cottage itself is reputed to be associated with Judge Jeffrey's (the hanging judge). It is said that when attending the county court he used it to stable his horses as he could use the underground passages linking the Court Room to safely escape angry crowds after sessions of harsh sentencing. The pretty uniqueness of the property, with its calm, peaceful atmosphere and its sense of history have provided a safe secure haven which I and my family have been lucky enough to call home for so many years. However, time moves on, the children have grown and left. it is time to downsize."
