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.

Crossing the characterful courtyard will take you to the first entrance door, leading into the main accommodation of this stone-built single-storey property that sleeps six. Inside you are met with a striking and thoughtfully designed open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a vaulted ceiling, wood burner and Smart TV. The fully equipped kitchen area is set to the left, complete with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Leading from here, you will find an inviting super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) with a contemporary en-suite shower room and WC. Heading back across the open-plan living space, you will find a king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made into 2' 6" twins on request), with an en-suite shower room and WC. Just next door is a cosy 2' 6'' twin zip-and-link (which can be made into a king-size on request), with a stylish bathroom just opposite, including a shower over the bath and WC. The annexe accommodation sleeping a further two people is set to the right of the courtyard and has a separate outdoor entrance. Here you will find a second open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is space for eight to dine in comfort here, you can enjoy a peaceful evening for two beside the wood burner, with a favourite programme on the Smart TV. The final bedroom is a king-size zip-and-link room (which can be made into 2' 6'' twin on request) with a Smart TV and has a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC.

This property has many wonderful features outdoors as well as within. Across the landscaped courtyard is a games room with table tennis, a dart board, a pool table and a bar with a wine cooler and beer fridge as well as a useful laundry area with a washing machine and tumble dryer, and a window looking out onto the tractor yard. A hot tub is set within the courtyard, alongside garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ, making this the ultimate destination property. Those wishing to get active can play a match on the shared tennis court on-site, take a walk through the woods, or enjoy a picnic in the paddock while your four-legged friends roam free in safety. Guided tours of the farm are available including tractors and machinery used to produce organic arable crops and the rearing of cattle and sheep. There is ample off-road parking for four cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
