This bright and welcoming converted barn offers spacious accommodation in a picturesque rural location.

Adjoining working farmland, the accommodation is one of two detached barn conversions which have been designed with great care and style to make the most of the views. A perfect location for enjoying the countryside or take a stroll to the main farm where guests are invited to watch the robotic milking or meet the cows and sheep. The property is nestled in the picturesque village of Whitchurch Canonicorum in the lovely Marshwood Vale with its river Char which winds down to Lyme Bay at Charmouth. The historic unspoiled seaside resort and fishing port of Lyme Regis is nearby.

There are many attractions in the area including Jurassic Fun Centre, River Cottage HQ, Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium and Axe Valley Wildlife Park.

Arranged on one level, the accommodation is light and airy with high ceilings, exposed beams and an open-plan layout. In the kitchen area you will find an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Enjoy sociable meals together at the dining table nearby before putting your feet up in the welcoming lounge area, where there is a cosy wood burner, TV and DVD.

French doors open from the lounge area onto a sunny patio area with garden furniture and BBQ. An enclosed garden laid to lawn is beyond, an ideal spot for all the family to enjoy and for dogs to play. Off-road parking is available outside the property.

We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children aged 5months - 9 years. We loved the cottage and the kids particularly enjoyed the enclosed garden, which was safe for them to play in, and next door to a field with sheep and newborn lambs. The location is lovely, and convenient for travelling around west Dorset.

Lovely cottage in a quiet location yet accessible for walks, villages and beaches and the beautiful rolling countryside. We particularly appreciated the enclosed garden - it's not huge but it was completely dog-proof so we could leave the patio doors open and allow the dog to wander in and out as he liked. Super clean, very well equiped and comfortRead moreable with plenty of heating and hot water, plus the addition of the log burner and unlimited logs provided. We will definitely return. Hide

Nicely laid out. V clean on arrival. Dishwasher tabs, bin bags etc provided, but no salt, pepper etc. Decent size garden, but be aware patio doesnt get evening sun. Would have been nice for owners to come over and welcome us at some point. Also, slug trails on internal doormat each morning which was disconcerting.
