Property code: FOLKI

Barn conversion property situated on the owner’s farm around a courtyard in the Dorset countryside, enjoying expansive grounds with a children’s play area and shared use of an indoor heating swimming pool.

This property is located in the beautiful mid-Dorset countryside, only half a mile from two village pubs and a convenient village shop. The rural location is perfect for those who enjoy country walks and a gate at the edge of the property’s extensive gardens leads directly onto a network of footpaths. One of the main draws of Dorset is the spectacular World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the beaches at Weymouth, West Bay, and Lulworth Cove are all located within thirty miles of the property, each offering their own unique seaside experience.

On arrival at this barn conversion property, guests first come to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its beamed ceiling, wood burner-effect electric fire, TV/DVD, comfy seating area and dining table seating four. The kitchen area occupies one corner of the room and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and washer/dryer. The property has two bedrooms, the first of these being a double bedroom with sumptuous four-poster bed and a door leading to the outside seating area. The second bedroom, meanwhile, is a cosy bunk room. The bathroom, located close to the bedrooms, offers a shower-over-bath and WC. Outside, there is a private garden with a patioed seating and a lawn, for which the owners have provided garden furniture. Beyond this, there are extensive shared gardens for guests to enjoy, which include two lakes, and a children’s play area with a climbing frame, slide, and plenty of space for playing games. A wonderful addition to the property is the shared indoor heated swimming pool, which is open daily from 8.30am -8pm, although guests should be aware that this may sometimes be booked out for private use. (There is an up-to-date timetable provided onsite). There is ample parking facilities.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Fantastic cottage! Very comfortable! The leaving area is a bit dark and the kitchen needs some update on kitchen equipment. The swimming pool is wonderful and spotlessly clean.

Very relaxing location and the indoor pool kept our teens amused for hours!
