Solid cob walls, a twisting staircase, and a whole host of pretty nooks make this barn-conversion annexe a wonderfully characterful place to enjoy a couples’ break along with up to two dogs. Situated on a small organic farm, the location is absolutely perfect for endless walkies on the nearby Jurassic Coast, with a rural sanctuary to retreat to at the end of the day.

Upon arrival, it is clear that a huge amount of care and attention has been put into creating a stylish property which is sympathetic to the rural setting. Make yourselves at home in the light-filled lounge where your beloved pups can curl up on the rug whilst you enjoy a film or simply catch up with a good book. The kitchenette area is set off to one side, with a handmade spiral staircase leading up to the romantic bedroom where the super king-size bed and a quiet seating area sit under exposed wooden beams. Outside, enjoy al fresco dining on the enclosed patio to the side of the property, where there is space for your dogs to stretch their legs whilst you relax over evening drinks or a morning coffee.

Surrounded by attractive countryside, this farmland property is a wonderful choice if you are looking to escape the stresses of daily life and enjoy the simple pleasures of leisurely walks and days spent by the sea. It is perfectly possible to walk on footpaths to the seaside village of Charmouth, 2.5 miles away, where you will find a thriving and welcoming coastal community with a choice of dog-friendly places to eat. The beach is a popular spot for fossil hunters and is open to dogs all year round, though they must be kept on leads from 1st April to the end of October.

This is a wonderful place to stay no matter what the weather. It is a beautifully refurbished barn in which one just likes to hang out in. There are countless options for walks straight from your door step and a cosy pub to walk to. Hillary has been very welcoming and warm. We can highly recommend this beautiful place.

The barn, which is attached to the owners residence, is very nicely built and styled. It is well equipped and the location is great for walks and exploring the area. It was warm and comfortable and the area is very quiet. The garden needs attention (fix the broken fence and cut back brambles.) Allow earlier check-in in the winter months as it is daRead morerk at 5pm. Navigating lanes, shared drives/parking etc would be easier especially due to the wet weather and muddy entrance to the barn. Hide

Beautifully and tastefully furnished, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Parking provision was good. The owner understood the needs of dog owners and even provided a good quilted cover for the sofa to be used by dog owners . A great local pub in the village providing good quality food at reasonable prices and lots of local pathways for walkers.
