Tucked away in a rural location, you will find Park Farm Byre, a stylish retreat complete with hot tub and perfectly situated on a number of country and woodland walks. All on one level (apart from two steps from the sitting-room to the hallway), this contemporary property has been thoughtfully renovated and offers a fantastic space with everything you need for a wonderful holiday.
After a busy day exploring Dorset, share memories around the table; the open plan living and kitchen space is perfect for socialising in. In summer, open up the patio doors onto the courtyard area and take in those warm evenings; for those chillier nights, snuggle up in front of the cosy wood-burner. The private wood-fired hot tub is the perfect spot for some stargazing - the rural location will make for a twinkling display.
There are three delightful bedrooms to choose from; two doubles and one single room. The tranquil setting will assure you of a restful night's sleep. The accommodation is complete with a modern bathroom and useful utility-room. The friendly owners are on site but you are assured of your privacy.
The closest village is Tolpuddle, famous for its Martyrs and home of the Trade Union movement. There is a small museum dedicated to this piece of history, as well as an annual festival. The Martyrs Inn re-opened in July 2023 as a community pub for all to enjoy. If you want to explore the local area further, a visit to Athelhampton House and Gardens is a must - the beautiful Tudor House and glorious gardens make for a great day out and their cream teas are not to be missed after exploring!
Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are a short drive away and if you are looking for sand between your toes then the beaches at Weymouth and Studland are both easily accessible and are great for families to enjoy.
The county town of Dorchester has lots to offer; from museums to Max Gate - the birthplace of Thomas Hardy - or the stylish area of Brewery Square, there is always something to do.
