This is arranged with the bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor and the very large open plan living area upstairs so as to maximise the views and outlook. Entrance hall with flagged floor. Double bedroom with 5ft bed (NB low doorway) and ensuite bathroom with shower above the bath. Twin bedroom with extra pull-out bed. Separate shower room/wc. Stairs lead from the hallway to a large, open plan, double height living room with at one end a sitting area and woodburning stove and at the other a spacious fitted kitchen and dining table. Double doors from this room open out onto a balcony overlooking the garden.
|Further details outdoors|
There is an attractive, gravelled and paved area immediately in front of the barn and beyond this a large lawned area.
The surrounding area boasts some of the finest countryside in southern England, offering marvellous walking and riding across rolling chalk grassland and ancient woodland, which supports a rich diversity of wildlife. Unspoilt country villages with stone and thatch cottages blend harmoniously into this landscape, many of them with excellent country pubs and restaurants. Visitor attractions in this area are numerous – the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury and Old Wardour Castle are both 10 minutes away and the cathedral city of Salisbury about half an hour. Bath, Stourhead, Longleat, Stonehenge and the World Heritage Dorset coastline are all reachable in an hour or less.
