Surrounded by countryside, this property has easy access to walks a-plenty. 5 miles away, Morden Bog National Nature Reserve is a great place to enjoy a cycle and admire the resident wildlife, whilst 11 miles from your doorstep is the iconic Lulworth Cove. For the most picture-postcard picnic spot, bundle up a blanket, some tasty snacks and your tribe and drive the 10 miles to Durdle Door. To satisfy the urbanites among you, Dorchester is 10.5 miles away and home to some shops, restaurants and attractions.
Make your way along the tree-lined cobbled avenue to arrive at your private retreat. Offering peaceful seclusion and an abundance of activities for all the family, you will barely want to leave this fantastic spot. With an aesthetic colonnade along the front of the barn, this single-storey cottage boasts gorgeously homely interiors. The real heart of the home, the large lounge has vaulted ceilings with rustic exposed beams and lots of windows facing south over the garden and pool. In the summer, open up the French doors to let fresh air and sunshine come flooding in and create easy passage to the garden. In the evening, the wood burner fired up for sheer cosiness as the grown-ups gather around for a glass of wine. As the big kids natter, let the little kids congregate in the adjoining snug lounge and find their favourite film on TV as bowls of popcorn are passed around. On the other side of the snug, one end of the property is taken up with the generously-sized kitchen and diner. Here, lots of worktop space and equipment make daily routine a breeze, from your morning coffee to your family meals. Set about familiarising yourself with all that’s available and store away all your goodies. For extra convenience, there is even a washing machine and dishwasher provided. Later, after a long day of playing in the garden and exploring the surrounds, thoughts will swiftly turn to bed. At the other end of the property to the kitchen, a long corridor takes you to the four bedrooms. Pick your favourite room between the two doubles, twin and bunk rooms and look forward to restful nights’ sleep. The master bedroom, a 6ft double, has a door to the garden and en-suite shower bathroom. There is also a family bathroom, which has a shower over bath.
Outside, make a splash in the heated swimming pool between May half-term and September down the slide or with gentle steps. A pool house is sat nearby and a terrace area with table and chairs allows mums and dads to keep a watchful eye on activities before joining in themselves! An enclosed, walled garden, both your wee nippers and furry friends can play happily together. For extra entertainment, children's play equipment is provided, including table tennis table. Later, let your dogs explore the wild meadow area before heading back to sit outside the barn with a glass of something cool in one hand and BBQ tongs in the other.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
