Description from manager

This spacious, beautifully converted barn offers light, airy and modern accommodation for four people whilst still retaining many of its original features. Will be a pet-free property from 28th June 2019.This pretty barn conversion is situated amidst the owner's 130 acres of wooded farmland, just three miles from the centre of Sturminster Newton. Expertly renovated to an exceptionally high standard, this property boasts exposed beams throughout and provides wonderful views over the Blackmore Vale. With two charming bedrooms, a well equipped fitted kitchen and a traditional sitting room, this is a spacious property. Access to the pretty garden is via French windows in the lounge, which adds to the overall impression of space. Close by there are numerous footpaths and bridleways, providing excellent walking opportunities whilst the town of Sherborne is just 11 miles away.

Amenities: Oil central heating. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, video, DVD, radio, WiFi, selection of books and videos. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot on request. Off road parking for 2 cars. Enclosed garden and patio with furniture and swings for children aged 3-10 years. One small well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 2 miles, pub 1.5 miles.

Region: Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.

Town: Set on the banks of the River Stour is the small market town of Sturminster Newton, reached via a six arch 15th Century bridge that carries a warning of deportation for those who damage it. This beautiful region is apparently where the author Thomas Hardy drew much of his inspiration and it is said that he wrote 'Return of The Native' whilst living in the town. The surrounding area is packed with thatched cottages, numerous rural walks, stunning views of the countryside, and fascinating towns such as Sherborne with its abbey and castle. The beautiful Dorset Heritage coastline is also within easy reach and not only offers great water sport opportunities but also great bird watching, making this an ideal base all year round!
