Set in a secluded location just outside Dorchester, this light and airy 18th-century barn conversion is a cosy and inviting holiday home for a couple or a small family seeking a lovely rural retreat.
This property is a delightful two-bedroom barn conversion with plenty of charm on the edge of the village of Charminster. This bright and airy property has superb vaulted ceilings and wooden beams, and is crossed by a public footpath, making it ideal for walkers. Its proximity to the local pub (under 1 mile), shop (1 mile) and the coast (10 miles) makes it an enviable location for family or friends to enjoy a relaxing holiday.
Climb three steps to the porch and enter the barn into a large hall with space for your coats. To the right, there is a bathroom with a shower over the bath and a comfortable double bedroom that has soft, peaceful decor for a great night’s sleep. To the left of the front door, the open-plan living area welcomes you with oak floors and wood beams, inviting you to sink back into the cosy sofas in front of the wood burner. Fix yourself a snack in the kitchen area and eat at the table by the window on a sunny day. Head up the stunning open-tread spiral staircase to a small gallery (with a low beam) that looks over the living area, and a twin bedroom with small single beds that’s perfect for kids – just watch their heads in the eaves! Outside, a large L-shaped garden with trees and shrubs backs onto fields for pretty views and offers plenty of space for children and dogs to play.
This property is in an ideal place for you to visit Dorchester, only 2 miles away, as well as the coast. Osmington Mills (10.5 miles) is great for a coastal walk, while Weymouth (11 miles) has a Sea Life Centre and the Jurassic Skyline, giving you 360-degree views in a glass gondola that slowly rises above the resort.
