Situated at the edge of the quiet rural village of Askerswell, this 4-star accommodation is a well-equipped and relaxing retreat from the daily grind.
This Grade II-listed stone barn conversion occupies a peaceful position on the edge of a pretty Dorset village. Its open-plan layout, tasteful contemporary decor and large lawn garden make this a fantastic base for family holidays with the dog. Askerswell itself boasts a popular pub for refuelling after a long walk through the surrounding countryside, while the dramatic Jurassic coastline (4 miles) is lined with picturesque beaches and quaint seaside towns just waiting to be explored.
One of four cottages sympathetically converted from the original farm building, this property retains charming exposed beams, a stable door and original stonework. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is perfect for entertaining or spending time with family, with a Smart TV, Firestick, DVD player and Bluetooth sound system to keep all guests entertained. Upstairs are two beautifully-presented bedrooms, with original floor boards and reduced height in the eaves. Across the lane in front of the barn is an enclosed lawn garden with summerhouse and garden furniture, which offers plenty of space to burn off steam, dine alfresco and relax with family in the sunshine. There is ample shared parking.
Surrounded by glorious Dorset countryside, this property is ideal for enjoying long walks through Askerswell Down before tucking into a hearty meal at the local inn, half a mile away. The lively market town of Bridport is just 4 miles away, home to a host of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Head to the coast to visit the popular seaside towns of West Bay (5 miles), Seatown (8.5 miles), Lyme Regis (15 miles) and Weymouth (17 miles), relax on the sand, walk the coastal path or try your hand at coasteering, kayaking or abseiling.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
