First-floor barn conversion property enjoying a village location in East Dorset, within easy reach of the county’s famous coastline, just a short drive from Bournemouth and Poole.
A welcoming two-person retreat, this first-floor apartment in the village of Lytchett Matravers is ideal for solo escapers and romantic breakers holidaying with dogs. Within 1.5 miles of popular village pubs and amenities, you can enjoy a drawn-out walk or quick drive into the village and dip in and out of local life. Even more appealing, this property is only 11 miles from the sprawling Dorset AONB and 7.5 miles from the coastal town of Poole with its plethora of beaches – ideal for those looking to make the most of the county’s diverse landscapes and scenery.
To get acquainted with your new home-from-home, head up some stairs and enter the apartment. Inside, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner will greet you with beautiful, exposed beams, characterful sloping ceilings and lots of natural light. Staying true to its roots, this property is full of charm – sympathetically mingling period features with contemporary furnishings and accoutrements. Make yourself comfortable among the lounge’s comfortable seating and enjoy the superb views from the panoramic window. Or, if you feel like getting creative, harness your skills in the well-equipped kitchen and rustle up some food to serve around the dining table. Completing the picture is a master bedroom with a balcony and an en-suite shower room.
Only 5 miles from the coast, this property is particularly well-suited to fans of the coast. If you love wildlife, you can visit Lytchett Bay, an internationally recognised conservation area crucial for wading birds and wildfowl, or you can hop on a boat to Brownsea Island, home of rare red squirrels. Another day, you should make tracks to Poole (7.5 miles); a hub of activity, this large coastal town boasts the world’s second largest natural harbour, award-winning blue flag beaches (including the famous Sandbanks), a vibrant quayside and a picturesque historic old town.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
