This stylish detached barn conversion offers luxury accommodation with far reaching countryside views. Quietly situated down a private lane in a beautiful rural setting, yet is within easy reach of the coast.

This stylish detached barn conversion is a luxurious home-from-home deep in the countryside. Sleeping eight over four bedrooms, it's the perfect place for active family get-togethers. The rolling Dorset downland is all around, with a network of footpaths taking you out on long family walks, and the beach is within easy day-trip distance. But if you don't want to leave to get your fresh-air fix, no problem. This high-spec property has an equally high-spec outdoor space. And if the weather turns, you'll have everything you need to enjoy indoor family fun.

As you'd expect from a barn conversion, the property has a spacious open-plan living area with lots of original features. You'll never feel as if you're on top of each other here. There is an impressive apex ceiling with exposed beams and, for that real wow factor, chandeliers. Come in summer and you'll love the French doors out to the terrace and garden. In winter, you'll keep warm by snuggling up around the wood burner and enjoying the views. There's also underfloor heating throughout the property. The lounge area has comfy sofas with space for everyone and a TV to keep you entertained in the evening. There is a dining area with a large table, with ample space to gather. It's the perfect place for hearty breakfasts planning your day, or lazy evenings of food, wine and conversation. The kitchen area has all you'll need to keep all the family fed and watered in style, with an impressive range cooker at its heart and a breakfast bar for sociable cooking. There is a separate utility room. All four bedrooms have king-size beds that convert to two singles, giving you complete flexibility on how you use the space. Every bedroom comes with a TV and an en-suite bathroom too, meaning there's lots of scope for privacy when you need it. And they all have wonderful views to wake up to. Outside, the sunny south-facing terrace has more of those amazing views, a BBQ and garden furniture. It's the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon. The summerhouse doubles as a games room, with a table tennis table and its own fridge, so no need to trek back to the house when you want a cold drink.

Fabulous accommodation in a quiet area. Spacious and clean. High quality furnishings and very comfortable. It was the perfect place for a group of adults to stay especially as everyone had their own bathroom. You can start great walks straight from your door too. Small shop 10 minutes walk away. Highly recommended and we cant wait to return.

This property was in an ideal location for relaxing in beautiful surroundings and for sightseeing at local tourist attractions. It was very well appointed with lots of space and very practically furnished. The beds were SO comfortable. The outside space and facilities were also great. In addition, we were made most welcome.

The property was exceptional from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. A very peaceful and restful stay. Our needs were met in every way from the en suite bedrooms to the fully equipped kitchen and utility room. The staff we met were friendly and happy to assist if needed.

Lovely area and nice property but lack of tv,internet and phone service impacted on rainy days and evenings as with children we were not out late so could have done with things working properly. Building work happening from 8am each morning was noisy and intrusive. Kitchen ware needs updating as some is tired and stained Heating presented a challenRead morege also. If they get these things sorted with the area it is in it would be idylic Hide

Very suitable for adults as each bedroom has its own en-suite. On our visit there was only 2 couples but we each had our own wing which helped with social distancing and the living space is open plan and spacious especially when only 4 sharing.

We are a hard group to please but this lovely barn was pretty much perfect for our 3 generation family holiday. It was beautifully furnished and brilliantly equipped with an excellent layout and in a great location. It passed the 'could we spend a day here' question with flying colours - our benchmark of quality.
