Enjoy far-reaching countryside views, while relaxing in the private hot tub or for a more active break take advantage of the many nearby walks or on-site indoor tennis court with a break in this converted former barn.

Set in a rural spot with views across the Blackmore Vale, it’s half a mile to the pretty village centre, where you’ll find a shop and pub. Just 3 miles away is the market town of Sturminster Newton, which has further amenities, a pretty working mill and popular trailway, which leads to Blandford Forum. This is the ideal route for walking and cycling or plan a stroll along the Wessex Ridgeway. Hambledon Hill and neighbouring Hod Hill (5 miles) are also well worth a visit to take in the stunning views across three counties. The nearby River Stour boasts some excellent wild swimming spots, perfect for the summer months or explore local towns including Shaftesbury (8 miles), home to the iconic Gold Hill.

Accessed via an unmade lane and shared drive, this semi-detached converted barn is timber clad and has lovely far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Set within an organic farm, sliding doors give access into the light and bright open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. To the rear of the space is the kitchen, which is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is space to dine just opposite and comfortable seating in the living area, both areas allow for you to appreciate the privacy and outside beauty of the farm. The large comfy sofa beside the wood burner allows for you to fully relax of an evening while making use of the Smart TV. A shower room with walk-in shower and WC is on the ground floor, stairs rising to the first floor located between kitchen and bathroom. Here you will find a king-size bedroom with balcony window so you can really take in the breath-taking scenery and a comfortable twin bedroom just opposite. A separate WC is placed between the two bedrooms. Due to the setting within the eaves, there are some areas of restricted head height, which only adds to the character and charm of the converted building.

Cottage is lovely. It is in a beautiful location for exploring. A couple of niggles but overall it's a great base to explore from.

We really enjoyed our stay and using the tennis facilities. Property is somewhat remote which is good and peaceful but does mean driving a few miles to shops etc. would recommend for a quiet hideaway or family holiday with space to play and walk Thank you for your hospitality

We booked this for 3 nights mid week break and the accommodation was really lovely. Not really cold outside for being November but couldn't resist putting the log stove on and watching a real fire. Hot Tub was also lovely to use. Everything was clean and had everything need to enjoy our stay - the bread/milk/butter/cake and biscuits was also reallyRead more appreciated on arrival after driving up from Cornwall. Very peaceful area. Thank you Simon and Lisa. Hide

Lovely comfortable unit, quality fit-out/furnishings with log fire, hot tub and access to indoor tennis and badminton courts (note: 9-5 weekdays only). Nice location with lovely views across the hillside. A good place to relax/chill (although there is an adjoining unit, this was unoccupied the week we were there).
