The property

Milborne St Andrews 2.1 miles.

A stone-built barn conversion resting on the fringes of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Shepherd’s Hut promises an unforgettably scenic experience for you and your loved ones to experience the best of the countryside of the south of England.

Positioned on a working farm, this upside-down dwelling provides rustic settings and plenty of wonder.

Heading up to the first floor of the property will bring you to the hub of the house; an open-plan living space home to all of the contemporary amenities you could need to enjoy a week-long stay.

Sit amongst the rustic wooden beams in the sitting area with the woodburning stove warming the room to unwind before unpacking your belongings in the ample storage spaces; take in the scenic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows with a glass of wine in hand to achieve true tranquillity.

The open-plan space is also home to a well-equipped kitchen, where you can rustle up any meal you fancy to be enjoyed around the wooden bench taking centre stage in the room.

Venturing back down the stairs to the ground floor will bring you to the three bedrooms; consisting of a king-size with its own en-suite shower room and two twins serviced by a gleaming bathroom, the property ensures that everyone gets an equally as delightful resting spot.

To the rear of the property is a lusciously green lawned area, where your canine companions can run around freely as you enjoy the farmland views and the rays of the sun; there’s no better spot to end each day of your holiday.

The local area of the property is quaint and quiet, making it a great spot for walking opportunities, with the Dorset AONB within easy reach too promising even more magnificent lands and adventure.

Take a trip into the market town of Blanford Forum, ideal for all ages with its shops and eateries, tourist attractions including two museums and plenty of scenic wonders, there’s something here for everyone.

In reach of both coast and positioned within the glorious countryside, Shepherd’s Hut is the perfect spot to base your family adventure in Dorset.
