A peaceful base for a relaxing holiday surrounded by countryside, this contemporary barn conversion is set within a small working farm on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Milton Abbas.

Set within a small working sheep farm in the heart of North Dorset, this stylish property offers views over surrounding fields, spacious rooms and stabling, making it the perfect spot for riders and nature lovers alike. The picturesque village of Milton Abbas is the subject of many photographs and has a pub and historic abbey, which is home to tea rooms during the summer months. An abundance of pretty towns, villages and beaches are accessible from here, with a good selection of pubs and shops for those essential supplies. Heading south from the barn is the stunning Jurassic Coastline, which provides the ideal backdrop for walking and cycling.

On entering the property you are met by a bright and airy open-plan kitchen/diner. The stylish kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. An inner hallway leads to a ground floor double bedroom with adjacent wet room, which has a shower and WC offering increased accessibility. Also leading off of the central hallway is a full height lounge with wood burner, TV and DVD making this the perfect place to unwind after a day spent exploring. Rising from the lounge is a staircase, opening onto a mezzanine floor and giving access to a king-size bedroom and a shower room, complete with shower and WC. A single bedroom is also on this floor (with additional pull out bed available on request), which has its own entrance and also interlinks with the king-size bedroom.

Venturing outside you will find a generous decked area with garden furniture and a BBQ, accessed via steps and a ramp. Hot tub available from April 2019. Located directly outside of the kitchen/diner and lounge, it’s the perfect spot for enjoying a meal outdoors. A utility area is available within adjacent farm buildings, with a washing machine, tumble dryer and boot/dog washing area. There is ample off-road parking within the farmyard surrounding the property.

A comfortable cosy barn with rare to find disability/elderly facilities. Loved the location. Barn equipped well and our stay was enjoyable. Lovely bottle of wine and Dorset goodies on arrival was welcome and very thoughtful of our hosts to leave for us. We had a lovely relaxing long weekend stay.

Great location for horse riding holiday but less so for ordinary families. Free access to horses in stables for accompanied children was good. Owners very helpful and friendly, also the dogs. Good pub in village 20 mins walk away but longer and not easy, especially in the dark, on the return journey which is up a steep hill.

Our stay at Middleton Barn was delightful! From start to finish the barn accommodated all of our needs and was a perfect getaway for our family, including two children under 2. Neil and Sarah were lovely and always happy to answer questions and offer advice on what we could do in the vicinity. Thank you also for the warm welcome that awaited us.

My family and I (including our terrier Denis) - had the most amazing time this Christmas at Middleton Barn - our hosts made us feel so welcome - they even put up a Christmas Tree and left us a beautiful hamper. The barn is very big, light and airy and has all the amenities we needed. My nieces and dog had so much fun on the country walks and lookinRead moreg at the horses and sheep on the farm. One tip - you must visit the Hambro Arms in the village - a short stumble from the barn! Enjoy = we did! Hide
