About this property

S19867 is a brilliant base for exploring the area. After a day out, retreat back here and enjoy the views.

In the quaint village of Leigh, just south of the picturesque abbey town of Sherborne in north west Dorset, this converted listed barn is set in an L-shape around a courtyard on one side and with lovely country views over Thomas Hardy’s famous Blackmoor Vale on the other. It offers an excellent holiday base to explore north west Dorset and south Somerset. it has been renovated to a high standard with exposed beams, is tastefully furnished, and has use of a communal games room with a snooker table, table football and darts. Though set on the edge of an organic farm (but in a non working part), the owner would be delighted to show guests around the farm, which is only a short walk away from the cottages. There is also a small flock of sheep and chickens in the cider orchard close by. There is superb country walking on the doorstep, a village shop within walking distance, golf nearby and water activities such as fishing, yachting, boating, sailing and canoeing at Halstock Reservoir. Within easy driving one can visit the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum with its prototype of Concorde, the Haynes Motor Museum with its fascinating selection of vintage motor cars, and Montacute House and Gardens (one of the many historic houses in the area). To the north into south Somerset, spend days exploring Glastonbury with its famous and enchanting Tor, Wells cathedral city and Bishops Palace, the famous Cheddar Gorge and Caves, and the Georgian City of Bath with its delightful Roman baths, Pump Room, museums and of course shops and restaurants. Travel south and the spectacular World Heritage Jurassic Coast and Chesil Beach, with the popular seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, Bridport and Weymouth, all offer many attractions, sights and activities to enjoy, or more locally Sherborne Abbey and Castle (5 miles) and Dorchester market town (12 miles) are not too far. Shop 400 yards, pub 1 mile.

    "We very much enjoyed our stay at S19867. The games room was put to very good use on poor weather days. Chris the owner was very helpful & made all the family feel very welcome.We visited many places during our stay, with Lyme Regis, Corfe Castle & Durdle Door being among our favourites."

    "S19867 are set in a wonderful location and the accommodation is faultless, the layout is perfect for a large group of people. The games room is an added bonus especially for the younger members of your group (age and heart). Sharon was very prompt with answers to any questions I had regarding the property and Chris the owner is very welcoming and has time to pass the time with you / answer any queries. Perfect location for walking."

    "The cottage was set in a beautiful little village which we loved. The place was clean and tidy and the caretaker was very helpful in the run up to our stay with making sure there was everything we needed. The owner was always on hand if we needed anything during our stay and nothing was too much trouble. We certainly enjoyed the views, the garden was a great place to relax. We would absolutely stay again when we can. Good location to explore the surround areas."

    "General cleaning high & low or cobwebs & under radiators!Chris was absolutely fantastic, couldn't do enough for you. Very interesting & very likeable chap! We loved our tour of the working dairy farm & loved seeing all the animals....."
    Susan ‐ 25 May 2018
    "We loved this cottage with amazing views across the Dorset countryside. It was perfect for our family for a weekend break. The size and quality of the beautiful building was very good. Liked the fact there were three bedrooms on the ground floor which was great with small children and the large kitchen was great for all of us to eat together. Close to lots of great places to visit. Lovely owner who told us the history of the farm and its buildings. Best of all was the peace and quiet and the beautiful setting. Will definitely return ."

    "Beautiful cottage"
    Alan ‐ 9 Apr 2018
    "Great open welcome from Chris, for whom nothing was a problem. Fantastic place for a family get together. The accommodation was enjoyed and appreciated by all, and far outpassed the previous experiences that we have had for similar types of rental. Will be first call for future family gatherings !"
    Hereward ‐ 17 Feb 2018
    "Wonderful cottage. I'd be giving ten out of ten except the online reception isn't great for incoming texts and emails. Also, I think it must be an immersion heater situation because the water ran cold after one bath. But the cottage, the internal comfort of it, the fabulous kitchen (the type you live in and open a bottle in and talk for hours in), it was all exemplary. Nice owners too."
