The Old School House

The Old School House is part of a converted Victorian village school, set at the heart of the Dorset village of Piddletrenthide. This delightful conversion has retained a wealth of original features, including leaded windows and fireplaces, as well as boasting a seamless blend of contemporary styling to offer a welcoming stay at any time of the year. Look forward to unwinding within the sitting room which benefits from a woodburning stove and beautiful original leaded windows, offering a charming space to catch up on your favourite TV shows during a winter's evening. The reading room is situated next to the kitchen/diner and provides a lovely restful space for devouring a good book and a glass of wine, while the woodburning stove gently warms the room. The kitchen/dining room is a bright space where you can enjoy preparing some tasty dinners and gather together to share stories of your holiday adventures. There is also a separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom. Climbing the stairs at the end of the day will see you on a lovely landing with feature original fireplace and three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom with an en-suite, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom which benefits from a skylight window. The family bathroom offers a bath and separate shower, the perfect place to relax after a long day of holiday adventures. To the outside, there is a lovely little walled garden with table and chairs, and to the front a much larger lawned garden, half of which is shared with the neighbours. The picturesque village boasts a typical country pub serving home cooked food, and is just 8 miles north of the county town of Dorchester, where you will find all your high street needs and supermarkets. The area is perfect for walkers and for those wishing to explore Thomas Hardy country, and the Cerne Abbas Giant is only a short 3 miles drive away and village of Cerne Abbas is a beautiful traditional Dorset village. If you want to explore the Jurassic coast and enjoy fish and chips on the harbourside as you stroll along the beach, Weymouth is just 16 miles away, and offers all this and much more. The Old School House is perfect for a small family or group of friends to enjoy an idyllic Dorset setting.
