About the property

Visit Britain rating: 4 stars



Set within the peaceful grounds of the owner's farm and located a short drive from Sherborne, these delightful barns have been converted and furnished to a high standard and are situated in a courtyard setting. The design of the cottages gives the feel of a warm and welcoming farm cottage, most with woodburners and all with delightful, detailed finishing touches.

The area itself is beautiful and offers a wealth of attractions to suit all tastes including pretty villages, sandy beaches and a coastline which has World Heritage status. There are many National Trust properties and gardens that are all well worth a visit including Stourhead, Montacute Kingston Lacy, Corfe Castle, Hardy's Cottage and Studland Beach and Nature Reserve. In addition to this the towns of Dorchester, Sherborne and Yeovil are easily accessible and there are many attractions to visit including Monkey World, The Tank Museum, a Sea Life Centre, Abbotsbury Swannery and Longleat.
