The perfect couples’ bolthole, this stylish barn conversion is the ideal choice for a relaxing, eco-friendly break. With a wood burner, veranda and good road links there is something here for everyone.

The ideal base for a relaxing break or for touring local attractions, the village of Middlemarsh is set in a peaceful, rural spot. The Abbey town of Sherborne has a rich history and beautiful honey-coloured streets filled with independent shops and eateries, as well as two castles. Dorset’s county town, Dorchester, is 11 miles to the south and has a good range of high street shops, pubs, bars and cafes. Those wishing to get active can explore this picturesque area on foot or by bike, with routes taking in local landmarks including the Cerne Abbas Giant. Further accessible attractions include the Fleet Air Arm Museum and Haynes Motor Museum.

From the shared courtyard a private entrance door leads into this end of terrace, single-story property. Once inside you are met with a welcoming hallway leading to the striking lounge/kitchen/dining room on your right. This cleverly designed open-plan space has striking high ceilings and a lounge area with Smart TV to sit back and relax, whilst watching your favourite programmes and making the most of those cold nights with the wood burner. The dining area with dining table is perfect for sitting down and enjoying evening meals together or sitting with a drink and watching the chef cook up a storm in the kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. Heading back into the hallway you will find a charming double bedroom and a contemporary shower room with shower and WC.

Doors from the lounge/kitchen/diner open onto a fantastic covered veranda with furniture and a lovely outlook over the adjacent paddock and open countryside beyond. To the front of the property is a shared courtyard with parking for two cars. A small stream runs under the veranda and there is a pond across the driveway in the owners’ garden which is bordered with post and rail fencing, please take care with children.
