This stylish former barn is family and dog friendly, with far-reaching views, a wood burner and use of a professional standard indoor tennis court. A great choice for a relaxing holiday.
Nestled in a rural spot about half a mile from Okeford Fitzpaine, this stylish retreat offers far-reaching country views, a warm and welcoming interior, and use of an all-weather indoor tennis court. Located on an organic farm, this family-friendly property welcomes up to four people, and can be combined with the neighbouring property to welcome larger groups.
Accessed by an unmade road that can be a little bumpy in places, this spacious semi-detached property is timber-clad with tranquil country views. The ground floor is mostly open plan with long windows and patio doors to make the most of those glorious views. Snuggle in front of the wood burner after a bracing country walk, and rustle up family favourites in the galley-style kitchen before dining at the dining table or the picnic table outside. Enjoy a refreshing night’s sleep in the comfortable first-floor bedrooms, watching for the sloping roofs that add charm and character. There’s an open terrace to the rear of the property, with a field for kids to run and play safely, or you can book a slot in the indoor tennis court.
This rural property is paradise for walkers, cyclists and horse riders (you can request access to a stable and paddock, should you wish to bring your horse), with numerous trails from your front door. Explore Blackmore Vale, wander along part of the Wessex Ridgeway, or take the 3-mile journey to the pretty market town of Sturminster Newton to stroll along the river and admire the working water mill. Visit Hambledon Hill and Hod Hill (5 miles) to see the remains of an Iron Age fort and beautiful surrounding countryside, or visit the pretty Georgian town of Blandford Mill (7 miles) to visit the local museum and brewery.
