In the quaint village of Leigh, just south of the picturesque abbey town of Sherborne, these Grade II listed, terraced barn conversions are set in an L-shape around a courtyard on one side with lovely country views over Thomas Hardy’s famous Blackmoor Vale. They offer an excellent holiday base to explore North West Dorset and South Somerset. Renovated to a high standard with exposed beams, they have been tastefully furnished, and have use of a communal games room with a snooker table, table football and darts. Set on the edge of an organic farm (but in a non-working part), the owner would be delighted to show guests around the farm, which is only a short walk away from the barns. There is also a small flock of sheep close by.
There is superb country walking available from the doorstep, a village shop within walking distance, golf, horse riding and water activities nearby, as well as canoeing at Halstock Reservoir. Within easy driving distance, you can visit the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum with its prototype Concorde, the Haynes Motor Museum, with its fascinating selection of vintage motor cars, and Montacute House and Gardens, one of the many historic houses in the area.
Spend days exploring Glastonbury, with its famous and enchanting Tor, the cathedral city of Wells, home to Bishops Palace, the famous Cheddar Gorge and Caves, and the Georgian city of Bath with its delightful Roman baths, museums and of course, shops and restaurants. Travel south where you will find the spectacular World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Chesil Beach, with the popular seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, Bridport and Weymouth, all offer many attractions, sights and activities to enjoy. More locally, Sherborne Abbey and Castle and the market town of Dorchester are not too far. Beach 24½ miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
