Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life with this charming barn conversion set in an idyllic rural location just a short stroll from the riverside quay of the historic Saxon walled town of Wareham.
This property is a delightful two-bedroom barn conversion with superb flagstone flooring and wooden beams situated close to the town of Wareham. Located on a quiet no-through lane, only a farmer and livestock use it occasionally, so you have the ultimate peace and quiet. Its close proximity to the local pub (0.5 miles), shops and cafes (1 mile) and the coast (7 miles) mean there’s something for everyone and you’re sure to have a relaxing holiday here.
Enter the cottage up two steps into the living area, where vaulted ceilings and French doors to the garden make it a bright and airy space. It’s still cosy thanks to the inviting sofas to snuggle into in front of the wood burner. The u-shaped kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm for your family, with pretty views over the garden from the sink. Next to the kitchen, a king-sized bedroom has soft, delicate decor that promotes a good night’s sleep, while recessed stone bedside tables remind you of the property’s former use. There is a step down through French doors into the garden. Heading up the wooden spiral staircase, you’ll find a small gallery area overlooking the living area and a cosy twin bedroom with exposed beams and reduced height at the eaves. There is also a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Outside, the garden is laid to lawn with plenty of flowers and shrubs, and the raised gravelled seating area is a perfect spot for an al fresco drink. Play some outdoor games or have a peaceful moment by the segregated pond.
The town of Wareham is only a mile away and has plenty of shops and restaurants to peruse, as well as a museum that’s full of local history. Take a wander around the natural water feature the Blue Pool (2 miles), which changes colour in different lights, or enjoy a more active afternoon at Corfe Castle (3.5 miles) learning about the Civil War.
