Spacious barn conversion property situated in the Dorset countryside, with shared access to expansive grounds, a children’s play area and a fantastic indoor heated swimming pool.

This property enjoys a quiet location in rural mid-Dorset surrounded by beautiful countryside. The towns of Sherborne and Dorchester are both within easy reach of the property, both of which have plenty to offer day-trippers, including Sherborne’s two castles and imposing Abbey, and Dorchester’s numerous unusual museums. Just thirty miles south of the property lies the sheltered horseshoe-shaped bay of Lulworth Cove, and a short distance around the coast, the iconic Durdle Door. Or perhaps you would prefer the large sweeping beach at West Bay, recognisable to many as the location for the TV series Broadchurch.

Guests enter this delightful barn conversion property directly into the spacious open-plan lounge/diner with its two deep sofas which are gathered around the warming wood burner, Smart TV, and DVD. The dining area is set off to one side, beyond which an archway leads through to the kitchen which is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Also on the ground floor is a handy cloakroom with a WC. Stairs lead from the living space to the first-floor accommodation where there are three bedrooms. The first of these is a double room which benefits from an en-suite bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC, as well as doors which open onto a Juliette balcony. The second bedroom is a twin room, whilst the third has a single bed with an additional pull-out bed. The bathroom, also located on the first floor, offers a shower-over-bath and WC. Outside, the property has a private patio with garden furniture, which makes a lovely quiet space to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.

Guests also have full use of the spacious shared grounds, which include two pretty lakes, and a children’s play area with a slide and climbing frame. The fantastic indoor heated swimming pool, is open to all guests from 8.30am -8pm each day, although times may vary, as it is sometimes this booked for private use. (There is an up-to-date timetable provided onsite). There is ample parking facilities.

Swimming pool was fantastic. The kids had a great time playing in the play area and football goals and was a safe place for them too. Very relaxing week.

Unfortunately on our first night there was a wedding in a marquee in the grounds of the property with noisy music late into the night, so it didn't really live up to the 'quiet location' we were hoping for and made a bad first impression. The indoor pool was great with the kids and the grounds are really nice. Lovely surrounding area and nearby SheRead morerborne is well worth a visit. Hide

Really well kitted out - would have loved larger mugs but everything else in the kitchen was great! Thank you for a lovely holiday! The welcome pack was much appreciated too.

Lovely location for a quiet holiday away from it all. The cottage is very well equipped with anything you should need. The whole set up is well thought through, felt Covid-safe. Owners available to assist with any needs ( not that we had any) Pool was beautifully clean, warm, and well organised with booked sessions daily per cottage.
