Set in the heart of a working farm converting to organic certification, this beautiful converted barn is perfect for families wishing to get away from it all, whilst being within easy reach of local attractions. There is a farm shop and a café close at hand, or head 5 miles north east to the historic town of Sherborne, which is a haven for foodies as well as lovers of history as it has a striking abbey, two castles and boutique shops within its honey-coloured streets. There is a wide choice of exclusive way-marked farm walking and local public footpaths. Travel to pretty villages such as Cerne Abbas, home to the famous hillside chalk giant, the gardens of Mapperton and Abbotsbury, or the National Trust property Montacute, home of the summer parkrun.
