The Barn (BARN)
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The barn is a characterful conversion dating back over 100 years and just renovated to provide a comfortable and modern holiday cottage. Located next to the owner's house, the cottage has its own entrance and enclosed patio garden. Surrounded by the rolling hills of Dorset and with many different routes to walk, The Barn is perfect for guests wishing to experience the charm of the countryside. With the coast just a mile or so away, guests can also explore the magnificent Chesil Beach and Jurassic coast - it is perfect for beachcombing, fishing or just enjoying the views to the horizon. The nearest pub, The Crown, is around a three minute walk and provides meals and a variety of beverages including local beer. From 1st November 2013 a community shop is opening in the pub selling locally sourced groceries. Another village nearby worth exploring is Abbotsbury with its sub-tropical gardens and a unique swannery. Around six miles away to the West is the market Town of Bridport which has a variety of markets including antiques and farmers along with a good high street and Weymouth with its Georgian seafront, old harbour and sandy beach is a lazy drive along the coast road through picture postcard villages and breathtaking scenery to the East.
With so many pursuits surrounding the barn it is the ideal base to explore the many options Dorset presents to guests.

The West Country region

"Lovely cottage, lovely village and excellent hosts!"
Visited mid July with my wife, three year old son and seven year old border collie. What can I say, the perfect cottage with plenty of room for all of us! A very warm welcome from the owners of a lovely cottage. Even provided a pint of fresh milk, tea, coffee and a box of chocolates to take away the pain of a long drive! The cottage backs on to fields to walk the dog and is a very short walk to the local pub and the kids play area. That's all the family happy then! Just a five minute drive to the nearest beach and another five to Bridport. A good time was had by all and we would highly recommend it :-)
