The Barn offers good sized and very well presented accommodation with a whole number of character style features including colour washed stone, exposed beams and 'A' frames, solid pine latched doors, deep sill windows and fireplaces to both reception rooms. The property has been under the current ownership for the past 10 years and improvements include a fully fitted kitchen with built in appliances, fully tiled bathroom/shower room with roll top bath, laminate wood flooring to both reception rooms and electric heating (part night storage).

The Barn is approached over a communal gravelled courtyard (under separate ownership) leading to INTEGRAL GARAGE/STORE with double timber doors, power and light, plumbing for washing machine.

There is also the additional benefit of an OPEN FRONTED SINGLE CAR PORT situated within the courtyard.

The Barn has been very successfully let out for holiday lettings with a high occupancy rate and currently generating excellent revenue. Only weekly bookings are taken and the changeover day is Friday.

The majority of the fixtures and fittings will be available by separate negotiation together with the benefit of the goodwill and future bookings.

Alternatively the property is available with Vacant Possession.

The Barn occupies a peaceful and attractive courtyard setting in the sought after village of Symondsbury. The picturesque village is surrounded by beautiful countryside within an area designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the well-known view point Colmers Hill. Amenities include a primary school, church and public house. There are many scenic walks right on the doorstep.

The thriving market town of Bridport is only about 2 miles to the east and the beautiful World Heritage coast at Eype and Seatown is a similar distance away. The popular harbour resort of West Bay is also within easy reach and Lyme Regis is about 12 miles along the coast to the west. The larger centres of Dorchester, Weymouth and Yeovil are about 16 miles and together with Axminster, all have main line rail services to London and the West Country.
