Enjoying a central position in a quintessential Dorset village, this 200-year-old barn conversion makes a delightful holiday home for a family or a couple looking to explore an idyllic area.

This delightful two-bedroom property is part of a farmyard conversion near the centre of the charming village of Winfrith Newburgh.

It’s a great base from which to explore the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a shop (100 metres) and pub (0.5 miles), also conveniently close.

An unenclosed front garden welcomes you to the property, with a handy WC and cloakroom off the entrance hall.

Head into the relaxing sitting room with beams, and French doors that open out to the courtyard. Sofas surround an open fire, an inviting prospect on those chillier evenings. Watch a film on the Smart TV making use of Netflix or create your own music with the piano! Upstairs, you will find two inviting bedrooms, one double with a TV, and one twin. Alongside these is the main bathroom, with a shower over the bath. Outside is a pleasant courtyard area with a BBQ for those who fancy dining alfresco. An adjoining garage includes a useful utility area with parking for one car and one separate outside allocated space.

While staying here, be sure to visit the world-famous Lulworth Cove, 3 miles away. The beautiful white pebble beach and blue waters make it a popular destination, with a variety of places to eat, too.

A gem of a cottage in a great location on a quiet cul de sac. There's a wealth of things to do in the area. There are nice walks from the cottage and lovely beaches within a short drive. There is also a recreation ground across the road from the cottage which was ideal to take our dog first thing in the morning. The cottage is tastefully furnished Read moreand very comfortable. We had a super holiday and would love to return. It's one of the best cottages we've stayed in. Thank you, Jane! Hide

Very pleasurable stay and will definitely book it again . It was clean and tidy on arrival and very well equipped. I liked the fact that it had a freezer with a few drawers. It meant that I could make/Freeze some meals before we went and then take them with us . It was good to be able to go out and about all day and just warm up the defrosted mealsRead more .
