Just 7 miles from the heart of historic Sherborne and 23 miles from the vibrant resort of Weymouth, explore far and wide and spend time on the renowned Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

Arrive at this welcoming barn conversion and find yourselves in the heart of the home. Open-plan and full of character, the kitchen/lounge/diner is a wonderful space in which to spend quality time together; a pair of sofas welcome you to sink down and relax, whilst the kitchen has all you need to rustle up tasty dinners. The oven, hob and microwave mean you can cater for all occasions, from quick snacks to three-course feasts, and the washer/dryer is handy for washing any muddy clothes or well-worn holiday outfits. Dine in style at the table or take your plates outside and enjoy more time in the fresh air with a cold tipple to hand. With verdant views, the patio area is a great spot to sit at any time of day and is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee. A pair of bedrooms reside on the first floor and are lovely spaces to drift off and dream. Sloping ceilings and exposed beams add charm but mean you must take care. Kick start your day with a challenge in the games room (shared with neighbouring properties) or ask the owners for a tour of the farm. There is off-road parking for two cars.
