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. The 200-year-old building has been transformed into a comfortable and welcoming home, which will appeal to couples or families looking to take a relaxing step back from busy daily life. 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. A dining room leads into a well-equipped cottage-style kitchen with a traditional Aga, perfect if you fancy whipping up a home-cooked meal. 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. The fascinating Jurassic Coastline offers ample opportunities to walk, climb or cycle, depending on how energetic you’re feeling! Of course, you can also enjoy a day in Dorset’s county town of Dorchester, which is just 9 miles away.

Blackbird Barn makes an excellent base for exploring everything this area has to offer - beaches, coastal walks, pretty villages, Tank Museum, Monkey World. Immaculately clean and touches such as fresh flowers make it a real home-from-home. Village shop and pub within easy walking distance.

Visitor attractions such as the Tank museum, Maiden castle, Poole, with it's boat tours, all not too far away.
