Sturthill Stable is a lovely barn conversion on a working dairy farm in the most beautiful Dorset countryside, just a few miles inland from The Jurassic Coast.
The kitchen/dining-room is a very sociable space for all the family.
The patio is a relaxing place for everyone to gather.
The spacious sitting-room has plenty of comfortable seating. Windows all along one wall face the farm - a great viewing gallery.
The kitchen/dining-room has French doors to the patio where you can watch the daily comings and goings of farm life.
The master bedroom - with 'zip and link' beds - set up here as a super-king size bed, but it can be made up as twin beds if you prefer.
Guests young and old can enjoy this '4 in one' games-table; table-football, mini-pool, table-tennis and air hockey.
Stairs to the first floor and the door through to the ground floor shower-room with the kitchen/dining-room beyond.
This fabulous tennis court is a real bonus for the energetic. There is plenty of outside space, offering a farm setting that children will be sure to remember. Do please supervise children at all times.
The dairy herd will become a familiar sight.

A lovely house so well equipped, Especially for children. Great location we will definitely book to come again.

large kitchen, living room, 3 bathrooms, fast internet - great for family holiday stay. the playroom and tennis court are great, really beyond expectation.

Owners were very approachable and helpful. A lovely restful spot to recharge. Watching and listening to the cows/farming was good fun!

Great for a family holiday. Kids loved the games room. Excellent cottage with absolutely every thing we needed.close to Bridport and the fossil coast. Thoroughly recommended.

Lovely property. Very clean and welcoming. It may be rather warm if the weather was hot. Also there are lots of flies!
