Whether you are unearthing country trails, visiting the coast, heading into town or simply enjoying every minute of your home from home, all generations will fall for this property’s charm.

Surrounded by countryside, this property has easy access to walks a-plenty. 5 miles away, Morden Bog National Nature Reserve is a great place to enjoy a cycle and admire the resident wildlife, whilst 11 miles from your doorstep is the iconic Lulworth Cove. For the most picture-postcard picnic spot, bundle up a blanket, some tasty snacks and your tribe and drive the 10 miles to Durdle Door. To satisfy the urbanites among you, Dorchester is 10.5 miles away and home to some shops, restaurants and attractions.

Make your way along the tree-lined cobbled avenue to arrive at your private retreat. Offering peaceful seclusion and an abundance of activities for all the family, you will barely want to leave this fantastic spot. With an aesthetic colonnade along the front of the barn, this single-storey cottage boasts gorgeously homely interiors. The real heart of the home, the large lounge has vaulted ceilings with rustic exposed beams and lots of windows facing south over the garden and pool. In the summer, open up the French doors to let fresh air and sunshine come flooding in and create easy passage to the garden. In the evening, the wood burner fired up for sheer cosiness as the grown-ups gather around for a glass of wine. As the big kids natter, let the little kids congregate in the adjoining snug lounge and find their favourite film on TV as bowls of popcorn are passed around. On the other side of the snug, one end of the property is taken up with the generously-sized kitchen and diner. Here, lots of worktop space and equipment make daily routine a breeze, from your morning coffee to your family meals. Set about familiarising yourself with all that’s available and store away all your goodies. For extra convenience, there is even a washing machine and dishwasher provided. Later, after a long day of playing in the garden and exploring the surrounds, thoughts will swiftly turn to bed. At the other end of the property to the kitchen, a long corridor takes you to the four bedrooms. Pick your favourite room between the two doubles, twin and bunk rooms and look forward to restful nights’ sleep. The master bedroom, a 6ft double, has a door to the garden and en-suite shower bathroom. The final room is a family bathroom, which has a shower over bath.

Outside, make a splash in the heated swimming pool between May half-term and September down the slide or with gentle steps. A pool house is sat nearby and a terrace area with table and chairs allows mums and dads to keep a watchful eye on activities before joining in themselves! An enclosed, walled garden, both your wee nippers and furry friends can play happily together. For extra entertainment, children's play equipment is provided, including table tennis table. Later, let your dogs explore the wild meadow area before heading back to sit outside the barn with a glass of something cool in one hand and BBQ tongs in the other.

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

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

My family and I stayed at Long Acre Barn in June for 2 weeks and fell in love with the Barn and the surrounding area. We couldn't wait to book again and were so happy to spend another 2 weeks in September. We find the barn very comfortable with all that we require and very handy to reach places of interest, of which there are many in the area. CaRead moren't wait to see when we can book again. Hide

Fantastic barn conversion and certainly kept me fit walking from kitchen to bedrooms. Very comfortable, beds great so a good nights sleep. The swimming pool was an added bonus in such hot weather. Would definitely recommend to others but would love to keep for myself. Garden was great for playing games in and kitchen well equipped. Only negative waRead mores the amount of ants but they can be dealt with. Would give the place 5 stars as everything was catered for. Hide

Beautifully presented, well provided cottage. Huge, well kept garden. Lovely pool. Lots of things to keep the whole family entertained and happy! We loved it. (BUT - the flies were a real problem in the kitchen. Please would you consider putting up a proper automatic fly trap. The zappers provided didnt work and the sprays are pretty toxic and Read morenot really suitable for use in a kitchen.) Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
