Netherhay is ideally placed to give access to the market towns of Beaminster, Bridport and Crewkerne, the later having a main line railway connection to London Waterloo, a Waitrose supermarket and good road links. Beaminster, a short distance away offers convenience and bespoke shopping of a surprising variety for a town of its size, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurant and brasseries.

Accessed from the garden room is a large laundry/drying room. At the far end of the property is a further reception room with multi fuel burner and a vaulted ceiling, exposed structural beams with bi fold doors leading onto the garden. This section of the barn could lend itself to ancillary accommodation as there is a separate entrance to an inner hallway with access to a bathroom.
