  • Beautifully converted barn with open-plan sociable layout, original beams and stonework retained throughout
  • Situated in a peaceful spot on a working farm with cattle and horses surrounded by 130 acres
  • A few miles from the Dorset coast and its wonderful cliff-top walks
Property code: BCOTT

This spacious converted barn has been sympathetically converted to retain plenty of original charm.

Escape to Dorset for a break filled with adventures across coast and countryside and call this humble abode home for a while. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, bring your dog along and enjoy having a ball with all the family. Perfect for families and friends with a love of the great outdoors, enjoy the 130 acres of surrounding land or head 4.5 miles to the fantastic Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site for a day full of buckets, spades and sea dips.

Follow the farm lane and pull up in one of two off-road parking spaces before heading inside to make yourselves at home. Sitting beneath vaulted ceilings, with exposed stonework adding character and charm, settle in the lounge area which makes up part of the open-plan living space. Great for keeping an eye on your pup and for socialising, the open-plan space also helps create a light, bright ambience so you can truly relax after days in the great outdoors. Grab a tipple from the fridge and cosy up on the sofas or fire up the BBQ and step outside for an al fresco feast. Enjoy balmy evenings on the patio before returning inside to snuggle up in front of the TV or shuffle a deck of cards and get competitive around the table. When it’s time for bed, the ground-floor twin has plenty of room to get comfortable and the galleried, first-floor bedroom is brimming with quirk and light, though you must take care of the sloping ceilings. Freshen up downstairs in the shower room, perfectly positioned near the door for rinsing off post-adventure, before heading out to explore.

Pack up a picnic, grab your swimmers and travel 4.5 miles to the golden sands of Weymouth. Backed by beautiful Georgian buildings, make your trip to the seaside a fun-filled, family-friendly day and visit the attractions, tuck into fish and chips and enjoy cooling off with a paddle or a refreshing dip in the sea. A 16.5-mile trip will bring you to the iconic bay at Lulworth Cove, admire the sights before wandering 1.5 miles to the magnificent natural arch of Durdle Door.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
