Boasting the status as a Grade II-listed property, this beautiful three-bedroom property lies within the stunning Coombe Keynes and is a prime example of rural cottage charm.

This beautifully converted single-storey barn sits at the heart of the village of Coombe Keynes, just 3.5 miles from the Dorset coastline. Dating back to 1740, the Grade II listed building retains plenty of original charm through exposed stonework, a large inglenook fireplace and barn windows. When you’re not discovering the natural wonder of Lulworth Cove or browsing the independent shops of Wareham, take to your peaceful private garden for a BBQ surrounded by colourful borders and beds.

The dual aspect lounge is a fantastic room for spending time with loved ones. For the evenings, cosy leather sofas surround a large inglenook fireplace with wood burner. There is also a Smart TV and music system, while a separate seating area beyond occupies a sunny spot beside French doors to the garden. With wooden flooring, a farmhouse table, exposed beams and shaker-style units, the kitchen/diner is traditional and homely and opens onto the garden, it also boasts a Smart TV. Outside, al fresco dining furniture and sun loungers can be found, there is a patio area and a large lawn bordered by colourful beds, perfect for long summer BBQs with family and the four-legged friend. There is parking for two cars.

Set on a quiet lane running through the village, this property is a wonderful choice for walkers wishing to explore this historic pocket of Dorset. After a long day on foot, tuck into a hearty meal at one of the pubs in nearby Wool or Winfrith Newburgh. Just 3.5 miles to the south lies the dramatic Jurassic Coast and the stunning landmarks of Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. From here, join the South West Coast Path for miles of scenic walking with breathtaking views at every turn.

Carters Barn suited us very well. Its a lovely house, we particularly liked the novelty of staying under a thatch. The house is well equipped with lots of information to guide guests.
