Escape to the tranquillity of the Dorset countryside and stay at this charming former barn for two, set within an organic farm nestled amidst the beautiful rural landscape of Blackmore Vale. Away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, the barn offers a peaceful retreat with lovingly preserved original features and far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

Step inside to discover a light and airy open-plan studio-style space boasting original wooden beams and a vaulted ceiling, where a fully equipped kitchen area awaits, complete with a dining table for intimate meals. Comfortable seating invites you to unwind and enjoy your favourite shows on the Smart TV, while a wood burner adds to the ambience for cosy evenings in. A king-size bed is tucked away at the back of the building, and a shower room completes this stylish home. Outside, French doors open onto a covered gravel terrace, where garden furniture awaits, providing the ideal spot to soak in the surroundings. A charcoal BBQ is provided while stabling and the use of a paddock are available upon request.

Half a mile away lies the quaint village of Okeford Fitzpaine, where you'll find a convenient shop and welcoming pub offering a taste of local hospitality. Embark on a journey of exploration along various footpaths, including the scenic Wessex Ridgeway, or venture to nearby Sturminster Newton (3 miles), where leisurely strolls along the trailway await. For breathtaking vistas spanning three counties, venture to Hambledon Hill and Hod Hill, both 5 miles away. Discover the Georgian charm of Blandford Forum (6 miles), renowned for its brewery and picturesque walks through the water meadows. And no visit to the area would be complete without an 8-mile pilgrimage to Shaftesbury's Gold Hill—a steep, cobbled street made famous after featuring in the popular 1970s TV advert for Hovis bread.
