Set in a peaceful spot with easy access to pretty Sherborne and Shaftesbury, this charming studio is an ideal bolthole for two and boasts a private garden with barbeque and countryside views.

The Blackmore Vale is a great touring base, with West Stour sitting midway between the picturesque towns of Shaftesbury and Sherborne. Sherborne (9 miles) is home to honey-coloured streets, two castles and a striking Abbey, while Shaftesbury (7.5 miles) offers stunning views from its hilltop position and the much-photographed Gold Hill. Both towns have a good selection of pubs, shops and cafes. Many walking and cycling routes weave through the surrounding rolling countryside, or if you want to head further afield and visit one of the wide range of attractions within 30 miles, try Stourhead (11 miles), Longleat (20 miles), Haynes Motor Museum (14 miles), the county town of Dorchester (24 miles) and the Isle of Purbeck (30 miles), Henstridge Airfield (3 miles)

A gate gives access to this charming single-storey property, which has been renovated in 2022. Once inside, you are met with a cosy studio-style space. There is a contemporary kitchen area to the rear, separated by a clever dividing wall with open shelving. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and a 2-ring hob, plus a fridge with an ice compartment, ideal for preparing light meals. There is space to dine at the table for two just opposite and a compact sofa in view of the Smart TV. A double bed has views over the courtyard and fields beyond and is centrally set within the space. Just off this room is a stylish shower room with a step up to the shower cubicle and a WC. Patio doors lead to a fantastic, covered terrace and seating area at the front of the property, which has lovely distant views of the surrounding countryside.

To the side of the property is a second inviting gravelled terrace with a second table and chairs, plus a charcoal BBQ ideal for al fresco dining. To the side of the property is an off-road parking space for one car.

Studio was in a nice place and easy reach to many nice places to visit. However, there is a lot of noise with the barrier keep opening and shutting to let the fishermen through etc. also walls very thin and could hear them from adjoining farm house them talking. Having said that, it did not bother us. Also in nice easy reach for places to eat

This is just as described, a lovely little quiet place to stay on a fishing site with lakes etc. You need to drive really to get to any of the local shops / pubs etc, but not too far away. The studio itself is very cute, very cosy, attached to the farmhouse but still feels private with its own courtyard garden for barbecues and al fresco dining / dRead morerinks.
