This charming Grade II listed converted barn is set within a tranquil spot and reached down a long private drive, shared only with the owner's property. Benefitting from stunning garden views and many of the original features, the property has been sympathetically renovated and finished throughout.

Nestled in a rural setting outside the vibrant town of Sturminster Newton and within walking distance of its wealth of shops and pubs, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Situated within the heart of Thomas Hardy country and offering some of the finest walks and stunning scenery within Dorset, right from your doorstep. A short drive leads you to some of the must visit locations that Dorset has to offer, from Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, made famous by the Hovis advert, Sherborne, that is often described as the prettiest town in Dorset, with its castle containing a fine collection of art, furniture and porcelain, plus many more visitor attractions in the area. 25 minutes leads you to the sandy beaches of Poole and the rest of the picturesque Dorset coastline. Or simply relax within the garden and take in the peace and quiet of this hidden gem.
