Property code: FOLWO

This single-storey converted barn is a fabulous home from home with plenty to keep you entertained. Spend sociable times enjoying communal dinners and sundowner drinks after working up an appetite in the shared indoor pool and wandering the grounds and the lakes (also shared with other properties on site). Just 30 miles from the Jurassic Coast and close to an abundance of well-trodden trails, explore far and wide or stay near the farm before returning home to relax in style. Sleeping four across two bedrooms, bring your pup along and have a ball with all the family.

 

Step inside and find yourself in the heart of the home where the lounge, kitchen and diner all fit together to create a vibrant hub of the house. Filled with heat from the wood burner and plenty of natural light, snuggle down on the sofa in front of the TV and sit awhile beneath the splendid, vaulted ceiling. Stocked high with your provisions and fresh local produce picked up on your way home from adventures, venture into the kitchen where colourful tiles greet you with warmth and welcome you to rustle up something delicious. Plate up either inside or on the unenclosed patio and garden if the weather is balmy, and enjoy a sociable dinner filled with tipples and tales of the day. Two bedrooms are calming spaces in which to rest your head after soaking in the en-suite bathroom or rinsing in the en-suite wet room. Rise and shine and make the most of the shared facilities before heading out to explore. 

 

The iconic cove at Lulworth is 30 miles from your door and is a must-visit destination when holidaying in picturesque Dorset. From here, you can walk the 1.5-mile path atop the cliffs to Durdle Door, where the magnificent natural arch provides a stunning view, and the seas are perfect for swimming in. Treat family and friends to a night off from the kitchen and travel 16 miles to Dorchester for a meal out and a night at the pictures.

We had a lovely 3 nights in this cottage, the accommodation was clean and warm and well equip. The accessible ramp and bathroom were perfect for my Mum in a wheelchair. Loved the log burner too. The stay was actually cheaper than 2 rooms in a travelodge and we got a swimming pool to boot. Would like to visit again.

Excellent disabled facilities. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. Lovely location in the countryside but close to Sherborne with its excellent ice-cream shop! Sherborne is a bit hilly but very interesting. Everyone was very friendly. The swimming pool is ideal being warm with good disabled access.

Great cottage set in amazing, picturesque grounds. Daily access to the private swimming pool was brilliant, our daughter absolute loved it!! Nearest town is lovely & the coast is only 45mins away so great location. As an independent wheelchair user found it a little hard going over the loose stones to get to the play area/pool/lake & no ramp out thRead moree back door of the cottage, but other than that it was a lovely place to stay.

Absolutely beautiful cottage and grounds. Great accessibility in the property for my daughter who is a wheelchair user. A pool lift would be an amazing addition as that was the one thing we did struggle with. Have recommended to other friends with children with disabilities. Thanks for a lovely stay x
