A converted barn in a great location for exploring west Dorset and the surrounding counties with plenty of attractions for all ages.

In a great location, in the heart of delightful west Dorset, this detached property is situated on a working beef farm, and the owners live next door. There’s glorious country scenery and walking in the area, so it’s great for dog walking, cycling and enjoying lovely village pubs to wine and dine in. There are many attractions nearby including Forde Abbey and Gardens right on your doorstep, and a local craft centre nearby. Within very easy driving distance is the ever popular World Heritage Jurassic Coast, with its stunning scenery and the seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, Charmouth and West Bay. Scenery, boating, fishing and sandy beach can be enjoyed at Lyme Regis, as well as fossil hunting, all making for a memorable holiday. Head inland, and you will find the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Haynes International Motor Museum with its classic car collection. Further afield you can visit the Clarks Village factory outlet, Glastonbury Tor, the cathedral city of Wells and Cheddar Gorge. Beach 10 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Lovely cottage with all mod cons. Good little pub just up the road. Some lovely walks and countryside on door step. Not far to seaside and lots of other pretty villages.

    We had a lovely few days, the weather could of been kinder, however the house is well located so managed to find lots to do to entertain the whole family. We will be back to explore more and do the things we didn’t have time to do. Very comfy house, and great location. Couldn’t ask for more.

    What a lovely cosy home. We were so warm despite the snow outside. The property has been converted to a very high standard. The only slight niggle was that the kitchen wasn't as well equipped as it might be. No chopping boards for veg, meat etc only a bread board. No garlic press - just a small thing really.

    The cottage was really nice it was in a good location in a small village. It is quite new yet still has character. I would have no hesitation in staying there again has the owners were very welcoming and it is a good location for visits to the coast, Monkey World and Cider Breweries.
