Characterful former milking parlour set in a tranquil, rural location. Surrounded by open countryside yet within easy reach of many popular attractions, it’s the ideal base for a relaxing break.
Located on the Dorset/Somerset and Wiltshire borders, this charming converted property is one of two barns set around a pretty courtyard, which is adjacent to the owner’s 17th century farmhouse. Set within a 50 acre sheep farm with some horses to admire it is the perfect spot for those wanting to take a break from the stresses of modern life. With a plethora of walks, cycle routes and flora and fauna to explore, plus the picturesque towns of Shaftesbury, Mere, Bruton and Wincanton within easy reach, it’s ideally situated for relaxed days spent touring. Enjoy a day out at nearby Stourhead, Longleat or Stonehenge before sampling local produce in one of the country pubs to be found dotted around the lanes.
On entering this former farm building you are met by a characterful open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with pitched ceiling and feature beams. The stylish kitchen area is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, and microwave. There is a laundry room with a washer/dryer situated in the courtyard. The cosy lounge area is adjacent and offers a TV and DVD, making this the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day spent exploring this picturesque area. Heading on from here is a useful room where you could either place a cot or use as a storage room, and an inviting double bedroom. At the end of the corridor is a contemporary bathroom, which has a shower over bath and WC.
Heading outside you will find a gravel courtyard and patio with garden furniture. Located a short stroll from the barn, it’s the perfect spot to relax and unwind. There is off-road parking for one car adjacent to the property. Across the yard, walks can be taken through the owner’s land, where there are beautiful views across open countryside to a lake and bluebell woods in season.
