The Owl Box is a delight. Situated deep in the countryside, down a very quiet country lane in the tiny hamlet of Throop, this is a Grade II listed, detached, thatched, brick and cob barn which has been expertly converted into a small cottage.

Special features of The Owl Box are its spacious, galleried open plan living room, original beams and timber cladding. These are combined with a high degree of comfort and modern convenience.

The location is ideal for walkers and cyclists, who can use the network of footpaths and cycle routes and there is good chalk stream fishing on the nearby River Piddle. The South Dorset beaches at Lulworth Cove, Ringstead Bay and Kimmeridge are some 8-10 miles away and the Isle of Purbeck a little further. For keen birdwatchers, a large number of migrating birds pass through the area and barn owls are resident on the adjoining farmland. This part of Dorset also has a number of interesting stately homes and museums to visit, such as Athelhampton, Hardy's Cottage and Cloud's Hill (both National Trust), Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum. Throop is about 12 miles from Blandford and Dorchester and about 2 hours' drive from London.
