Description

A charming stone barn conversion suitable for all seasons and ideal for a family holiday or couples sharing. Multiple attractions for adults and children nearby.


Situated on the owners’ working farm, on the edge of the Piddle Valley, just north of the county town of Dorchester, this spacious, well-equipped holiday barn conversion with a large garden, is an excellent location to enjoy Dorset and all it has to offer. There is excellent walking from the doorstep, village pubs to wine and dine in at Piddlehinton and Piddletrenthide, and many family attractions within easy driving. Weymouth with its award winning sandy beach, Sealife Aquarium, perhaps a day trip to France or the Channel Islands, and water activities are a must, or the children will love Monkey World and the Bovington Tank Museum. Perhaps explore along the famous Chesil Beach taking in the swans at Abbotsbury Swannery, or calling in along the famous scenic World Heritage Jurassic Coast at places such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Portland, West Bay and on to the pretty character seaside resort of Lyme Regis. Nearer home, visit Dorchester, with its character shops, history and places of interest such as Tutankhamun Museum, Teddy Bear Museum and Terracotta Warriors Museum all to be enjoyed. With a football table, table tennis and plenty to see and do there is certainly plenty for families to have a memorable holiday. Beach 10 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Absolutely loved our holidays at the granary. Beautiful house, spotlessly clean, well kitted out and a lovely welcome basket. In the middle of no where (which we loved, great walks) but an easy drive to Dorchester or Weymouth for the beach. I hope we get to visit again.

    We were a family of 9 - four generations - ranging in age from 1 to 83. We were delighted that the Granary was so well equipped and spacious - better than the photos - and with some very thoughtful touches. Katherine was very helpful and quick to sort out a minor problem with the shower. Definitely recommend!

    Really well equipped and spacious holiday home, with good facilities for our little grandson. I liked the basket of toys for him to play with, and not forgetting the wine and lovely cake on arrival! Beautifully furnished and very clean. Lots of places to visit in the area and enjoyed our meal in the Thimble Inn down the road. Would definitely stay here again.

    We had a lovely week here. The house is spacious and has everything we needed. The garden and games room were just right for us and our children. Location was perfect to enjoy the nearby beaches. Piddlehinton itself is a lovely village with a great pub and play area. Would strongly recommend!

    this converted barn/granary was perfect in every way. the 9 of us (6 adults, 3 children aged 2-9) had plenty of space to move around a very clean, well equipped property.The private garden was good for eating out when the weather was fine, and the addition of a games room was very popular.Piddle inn up the road in pidletrentheid was good for dinners or the sun inn just 10 minutes drive away in charminster was also very good for us all. Thoroughly recomended.
