Enveloped by natural beauty, this cosy barn conversion offers a modern feel inside and is most suited to families and friends looking for a varied holiday is this fascinating part of the UK. The accommodation is all on ground floor, with the well-equipped kitchen hosting a fabulous range cooker among a collection of quality units, while the dining area is ideal for family gatherings and home-cooked meals. Then you have the utility playing host to a washing machine and space to kick off your muddy walking boots at the end of the day. Step down into the living room and unwind in front of the woodburner on a cool winter's evening, there is a TV and homely furnishings, while the exposed stone walls and beamed ceiling add bags of character. Patio doors lead out into the garden, which you can throw open on a warm day and let in a gentle breeze as you enjoy a quiet read of a new book. From the lounge, there is a step down into a corridor to the three bedrooms and family shower room. First on the right is a twin bedroom with views to the garden at the rear backed by rolling hills, while the master bedroom boasts a king-size bed, wall-mounted TV and its very own en-suite bathroom. Lastly is the double bedroom with a freestanding wardrobe and views to the front of the cottage of the surrounding countryside. Outside, you can make the most of the lovely country garden on a warm summer's day, where there is a small pond and a seating area so you can relax with a drink. You are positioned just a short drive away from the delightful Maiden Newton village, which offers a pleasant blend of old and new buildings surrounded by the Dorset AONB. There is a small selection of useful amenities, including 'Le Petit Canard' restaurant, family run village shops and a traditional-style pub serving real ales and a friendly service. A short walk will bring you to Eggardon Hill, a National Trust site of an old roman hill fort with incredible views over the Dorset countryside and out to sea. There are lots of lovely local walks, and being dog-friendly it’s the perfect place for all the family to come and stay.
