Set within the Dorset Hills, this barn conversion is great for countryside walks or days spent by the beach.

This lovely, semi-detached barn conversion for two is tucked away in the Dorset Hills in west Dorset, and on the edge of the south Somerset border. It is an excellent holiday home in which to enjoy this wonderful area and unwind. There is superb scenic country walking, for you and your dogs, a lovely Dorset village on the doorstep and village pubs to wine and dine in. Explore the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Chesil Beach, taking in Weymouth, West Bay (scene of the TV series ’Broadchurch’), Bridport, Charmouth and the jewel in the crown of west Dorset, the ever popular Lyme Regis. Visit nearby Forde Abbey and Gardens and the quaint town of Beaminster, or venture inland and explore south Somerset. Beach 11 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub 1½ miles and restaurant 4 miles.

    Lovely well appointed cottage in the heart of the Dorset countryside. Extremely friendly local people.

    An ideal country escape. The cottage was spotlessly clean, very well equipped, comfortable and well furnished with everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable and drench shower excellent. There was even a doggie bed and mattress for our Cocker Spaniel, who felt totally at home - so we didn’t need to unpack ours from the car. Even some doggie treats too. A welcome bottle of Prosecco and biscuits were enjoyed on our arrival, sitting outside on the decked area.

    Had a great week in this cozy hideaway. The second time my husband and myself had stayed here and if anything we enjoyed it more! The welcome pack as a lovely surprise, the accommodation is ideal for 2 and like home from home. We did have to travel a fair bit to nearest pubs and beach but it was worth it to stay in such a relaxing spot. Will definitely return and recommend to others.
