Surrounded by historic landmarks, rolling countryside and excellent links to the coast, this converted barn is the perfect retreat for families seeking a holiday with a difference.
Perfect for a truly rural break, this former dairy is situated on a peaceful lane used occasionally by a farmer and some livestock; the only traffic you may encounter is the cows crossing the road. In the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and close to the Stoborough Heath National Nature Reserve, it’s in an ideal location for groups of friends and family wishing to get away from it all.
With single-storey accommodation, the property has space for up to six guests, with tasteful decor throughout. An open-plan room is built with socialising in mind, with separate areas for sitting, dining and cooking. Relax in the sitting room and watch a bit of TV, practise your culinary skills in the well-appointed kitchen and gather around the dining table together; there’s room for everyone. French doors lead from the open-plan room to the decked terrace, perfect for a morning coffee. The property has three bedrooms including a double with an en-suite shower bathroom, a twin which can convert to a 6ft double, and a single bedroom which has an additional single bed tucked away. A family bathroom completes this impressive property. Outside is a pretty decking area and a gas BBQ ideal for dining and socialising in the sun. There is ample parking for two cars on the driveway and, if needed, there is additional parking for a jet ski or boat trailer by prior arrangement.
With three nature reserves within a 2-mile radius, plus the wider Dorset AONB to explore, this is the perfect break for nature-lovers. Just 1.5 miles away is the historic market town of Wareham, the inspiration for Anglebury in Thomas Hardy’s novels. The pretty riverside town has good restaurants, pubs and shops while at the Town Museum you can learn about the town’s rich history.
