    “Fabulous barn, absolutely loved our stay here.”

    Modern yet homely with a fabulous garden. Great facilities, great location would definitely return if we visited the area again.

The property

This meticulously planned and high specification character barn conversion is bound to be a favourite.

It sits within the grounds of the owners 17th century thatched Manor, one of the oldest and prettiest properties in Chickerell, Weymouth.

Accessing the property via steps, you will find a centrepiece hand built oak and glass fronted living area and solid oak flooring throughout.

With a large fully enclosed garden to overlook from the impressive lounge, leave open the large glazed oak doors on a summers day to let the outside in, or close them and cosy up on a winters day.

Complementing the living area is a large contemporary kitchen which feels like the heart of the property due to its oak floors and warm tones of the wooden worktops.

Bath/shower rooms effectively one for each of the two bedrooms adds to the sense of luxury and convenience.

A handcrafted stained glass fossil design window in the main bedroom echoes the attention to detail that this property enjoys.

A peaceful coastal village which is within a mile of the Fleet, the largest natural inlet of sea water in England.

The village has shops, two public houses, a restaurant, chemist and post office.

The Turks Head, just a few minutes' walk from Fossil Barn is well regarded locally as it provides good portions of home cooked food available both inside and in the pub garden.

The village is just outside the town boundary of Weymouth, a Georgian seaside resort which you can dip into easily if you would like a day on the sandy beach and a walk along the pretty harbour in addition to exploring the Jurassic coast hunting for fossils.

A gorgeous Dorset welcome awaits when you arrive at Fossil Barn, fresh and delicious Dorset apple cake (the apples are picked from the garden) to accompany the welcome tea and coffee, a perfect way to settle you into your holiday.
