Situated in the rural village of Melbury Abbas, this beautiful barn conversion offers a peaceful hideaway surrounded by unspoilt countryside. Sleeping two and brimming with character, the accommodation boasts exposed beams and stone walls, a charming country kitchen and a warming wood burner. Spend your days exploring the network of footpaths that run close to the house or visiting one of the nearby sandy beaches before returning for a BBQ on the private terrace or a relaxing soak in the wood-fired hot tub for two.
Inside, the property has been beautifully converted to offer spacious, bright and airy accommodation that’s perfect for romantic getaways for two. Rustle up tasty meals in the stylish shaker-style kitchen, which boasts modern units, oak worktops and a Lavazza coffee machine. Dine at the table for two before settling down on the leather sofa for a cosy evening of films or TV in front of the roaring wood burner. When it’s time for bed, head upstairs to the beautiful king-size bedroom to rest beneath the exposed beams or indulge in a long soak in the en-suite bathroom. Stepping outside, the private terrace is a sunny spot for enjoying an al fresco BBQ or soak in the hot tub, while the shared games barn houses table tennis and table football.
