Hatts Farm is a working farm set in 150 acres on the Dorset and Wiltshire border, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The semi-detached Hatts Barn is a contemporary, reversed level barn conversion on a wide south-facing terrace. The large en suite master bedroom and a twin bedded family-room (the twin beds in the family-room can be made up as a super-king double bed, if required) with an additional single bed suitable for a child, are on the ground floor. Upstairs is a galleried open plan living-room, a beautiful Shaker-style kitchen and a wood-burner.
Hatts Barn is located near the market town of Shaftesbury and within driving distance of Longleat, the New Forest, Bath and Stonehenge. More locally, the village of Semley boasts a handy village shop and a friendly local pub, The Benett Arms. A day trip to the Jurassic Coast is very popular, as is a drive over the border to Somerset where The Newt country estate makes for a delightful day out.
There are stunning views from the hilltop vantage point above the cottages and children will delight in the rare breed chickens wandering the farmstead and the lambs in springtime. Down through the fields a short walk from the cottages, you will find yourself able to explore ancient untouched bluebell woods; the perfect spot for a picnic. Also, within a short stroll is the nearby, a protected Nature Reserve owned by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
