Cleverly converted from a former farm building, this charming property boasts a wood burner, eco-credentials, veranda overlooking the paddock and easy access for touring this picturesque county.

Relax on the terrace with a cool drink at this romantic Dorset retreat for two. One of a collection of beautifully converted, barn-style homes in the village of Middlemarsh, known for its chalk Cerne Abbas Giant, it has one bedroom and enjoys picturesque country views. Approximately 6 miles from Sherborne, it makes a great base for exploring Dorset; those staying here can then return after busy days out and relax on the veranda.

Open the front door to this single-storey holiday home to find light-filled accommodation. The heart of the property is its beamed lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can prepare delicious dinners for two and relax together at the end of a long day. Switch on the Smart TV and light the wood burner to bring a cosy glow to the space; set the table inside on colder days or dine out on the terrace when the weather is fine. As night falls, head through to the inviting double bedroom. The shower room, with WC, is also off the hall. Throw open the double doors to let a spring or summer breeze into the open-plan living area or sit out on the covered veranda to take in the beautiful views over the fields. This property comes with off-road parking for two cars. A small stream runs under the veranda and there is a pond across the driveway in the owners’ garden which is bordered with post and rail fencing, please take care with children.  

Spend your afternoons in delightful Sherborne, known for its gorgeous architecture, as well as its castles and famous abbey. Browse in the enticing shops, boutiques and galleries here and in Dorchester, 11 miles away. Venture south for days out near the sea. Go for long walks along the Jurassic Coast or enjoy the seaside town appeal of Weymouth, also approximately 20 miles away, with its sandy beach.

As it happened I was the sole person on site, but I loved Tinker Cottage, especially eating out on the verandah. Enjoyed visits to Shaftsbury, Sherborne, Dorchester, Minterne Gardens and the Water Gardens near Weymouth. I could easily find plenty more to do on a return visit.

We would thoroughly recommend this property to others, as both myself and my husband had the most restful few days staying here. The owners were lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming. We had treats waiting for us when we arrived (a lovely touch) and the accommodation was perfect for the relaxed getaway we were hoping for. Five stars all rounRead mored, thank you! Hide
