A stunning barn conversion delightfully situated within a small community of similar properties on the edge of this thriving village in West Dorset surrounded by beautiful countryside with walks in every direction. A perfect place to enjoy a peaceful break yet within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the coastal towns. The cottages are on the site of a former farm and were converted from barns and outbuildings to holiday homes about 10 years ago. The property has recently been updated both inside and out to include a newly fitted contemporary style kitchen with integrated appliances, new floor coverings and redecoration throughout. The beautifully presented accommodation comprises two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom and a lovely split level, open plan ground floor with spacious kitchen/dining and living areas. Doors from the lounge lead out onto a decked seating area and there are beautiful views all around. The property would make an ideal peaceful home away from home and can also be holiday let to generate income if desired. All furnishings and fittings (with the exception of a few personal items) are included in the sale.

The area has been designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the village itself has a very strong community with many local clubs on offer and an excellent community run shop/PO/cafe.
