Manor Farm - Manor Farm Barn description

Situated in the pretty village of Dewlish, surrounded by the rolling Dorset hills, these two highly individual and beautifully converted 18th-century farm buildings occupy a quiet corner of a courtyard on the edge of a 500-acre dairy and arable farm. Both are full of charm and character and are set around a shared outdoor heated swimming pool. Manor Farm Barn is detached, the larger of the holiday properties, and is arranged over three floors, offering eight en-suite bedrooms. The spacious living room has a beamed ceiling and French doors out to the courtyard, and there is a large, well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen with range. Churn House offers four bedrooms, and boasts attractive brick and flint walls with pine panelling in the kitchen/dining room. Each has its own patio with furniture and bbq, and shared use of a games room. Children will enjoy watching the farm activities, with ducks and hens on site. There are bridle paths extending from the farm and many lovely walks to enjoy, with several inns nearby and a village pub just 150 yds away. The area is rich in history, and the landscape featured in Thomas Hardy’s novels. Nearby is Tolpuddle, made famous by the Tolpuddle Martyrs, Clouds Hill (NT) where Lawrence of Arabia lived, and Athelhampton, a 15th-century manor house set in fine gardens. The Dorset Coast is only 12 miles away, with unspoilt chalk cliffs, and the notable beauty spot of Lulworth Cove. Shop 1½ miles.Entrance hall with cloakroom and toilet.
