Situated in the pretty village of Dewlish, surrounded by the rolling Dorset hills, these two highly individual and beautifully converted 18th-century farm buildings occupy a quiet corner of a courtyard on the edge of a 500-acre dairy and arable farm. Both are full of charm and character and are set around a shared outdoor heated swimming pool. Manor Farm Barn is detached, the larger of the holiday properties, and is arranged over three floors, offering eight en-suite bedrooms. The spacious living room has a beamed ceiling and French doors out to the courtyard, and there is a large, well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen with range. Churn House offers four bedrooms, and boasts attractive brick and flint walls with pine panelling in the kitchen/dining room. Each has its own patio with furniture and bbq, and shared use of a games room. Children will enjoy watching the farm activities, with ducks and hens on site. There are bridle paths extending from the farm and many lovely walks to enjoy, with several inns nearby and a village pub just 150 yds away. The area is rich in history, and the landscape featured in Thomas Hardy’s novels. Nearby is Tolpuddle, made famous by the Tolpuddle Martyrs, Clouds Hill (NT) where Lawrence of Arabia lived, and Athelhampton, a 15th-century manor house set in fine gardens. The Dorset Coast is only 12 miles away, with unspoilt chalk cliffs, and the notable beauty spot of Lulworth Cove. Shop 1½ miles.

Note: Manor Farm Barn (DPU) and Churn House (DPT) can be booked together to sleep up to 23 guests, making it an ideal venue for corporate events and large families or groups. By prior arrangement, catering can also be provided and the games room can be converted into a conference room

    Absolutely brilliant week at Easter with the family. We had beautiful weather and everything was spot on. 2 barbecues in April - who would have believed it! The cottage was well equipped and had virtually everything you needed. One minor gripe - there is no shaver/electric toothbrush point in either of the bathrooms - would suggest taking an adapter.

    Garden, pool, games room and next door pub all big bonus! Fresh flowers on arrival a lovely touch. Location perfect for Dorset attractions while feeling relaxed in country. Decor however was feeling a bit dated, there were cupboard knobs missing, doors didn’t shut easily - nothing a bit of TLC wouldn’t fix. All in all a great holiday home.

    This was an ideal place for a relaxing/peaceful holiday. It is central to many places of interest. The accommodation was excellent and care had been taken to make guests feel really welcome by providing many additional items which was unexpected.

    The pool and games room made the holiday for our boys. A lovely rural setting with friendly locals and an excellent pub a short walk away.
