This luxury barn has a sun deck with a private hot tub and is situated in an idyllic rural location, surrounded by rolling countryside. An ideal base for couples and small families to relax and tour.

Ideally placed for exploring both Dorset and Somerset, 3.5 miles to the west is the sprawling town of Yeovil where you will find a good range of amenities, as well as numerous National Trust properties including Tintinhull Gardens (8 miles) and Montacute House (7.5 miles). Enjoy fabulous views and long walks from Ham Hill or head to the charming honey-coloured streets of Sherborne, which can be found 3 miles west. The town is home to a picturesque Abbey, two castles and a great range of boutique shops and eateries. The ever-popular Jurassic Coast is also within reach, along with many attractions including Haynes Motor Museum, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Shaftesbury, West Bay and Abbotsbury, which are all within 20 miles.

Part of a small peaceful gated complex of similar properties, this recently converted 5-star barn conversion is accessed via a shared driveway and external steps to the front. Once inside you are met with a striking and contemporary open plan living space with a vaulted ceiling, which has been presented with the utmost care and attention to detail. To the rear of the space is a fully integrated kitchen, which has an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and coffee machine. There is ample space to dine just opposite and a comfortable lounge space with a Smart TV and DVD player. A useful utility area leads from this room and has a washer/dryer as well as a stylish shower room with a shower and WC, ideal when using the hot tub. The master bedroom is complimented with a super-king-size bed, Smart TV and an en-suite shower room with a large walk-in shower and WC. Completing the accommodation is the second bedroom, which again has a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (can be arranged as a twin on request), Smart TV and an en-suite shower room with a large walk-in shower and WC.

To the front of the property - and accessed either via the living area or the super-king-size bedroom - you will find a fantastic open terrace, with wonderful countryside views across to Golden Cap on a clear day. There’s a private hot tub here and patio furniture, perfect for al fresco dining. There is off-road parking for two cars in front of the barn.

This was a little piece of heaven! Absolutely blown away by the set up, the owners had thought about EVERYTHING a family needed. The lodge was so beautiful, away from the world, quiet and super cozy. Our kids had so much space to play inside and out. The hot tub was lush and the side entrance to jump straight into the shower was a genius idea. HoneRead morestly we didnt want to leave and have already recommended this place to family and friends. Hide

Location

Map
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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
