Hatts Farm is a working farm located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The farm spreads over 150 acres, located in the stunning countryside of the Dorset and Wiltshire border.
Hatts Barn is a semi-detached, reversed level barn that has been lovingly converted into what it is today. This beautiful barn has a wide south-facing terrace that offers you the perfect space to sit and enjoy the fresh countryside air or take advantage of some al fresco dining. Whatever your desire you are guaranteed peace and tranquillity.
On the ground floor you will find the large en suite master bedroom which gives an amazing sense of luxury but remains comfy and inviting at the end of a long day exploring the local area. You can submerge yourself into the comfortable super-king bed and cosy up in the fresh, soft linen. The family bedroom gives guests so much flexibility, with the ability to accommodate up to three guests. The main bed can either be made up as a super-king double or split into twin beds; the additional single bed in the family bedroom is suitable for a child - it is the perfect retreat for everyone!
Upstairs is the galleried open-plan living-room, kitchen, and dining area, where you can snuggle up next to the wood-burner with a good book or even just relax with the TV on - the choice is yours. Over in the well-equipped shaker-style kitchen, stocked with all your culinary needs you will want for nothing. There is also plenty of seating around the dining table for those perfect family meals. Or, for a night off, head to the quaint village of Semley offering a friendly local pub called The Benett Arms for some hearty pub grub. The village also offers a handy village shop just one mile away.
Hatts farm has so much to offer, 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. 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, protected Nature Reserve owned by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
