About Ashwood at the Victorian Barn

High quality 2 ensuite bedroom holiday rental with private hot tub on a family run farm in rural Dorset

Escape to rural Dorset, for a break to remember with friends and family.  This is a superb no pets 2 bedroom holiday home with all ground floor accommodation, set in an amazing rural location in Dorset.

This is an ideal place to relax and unwind for 4-6 people where there are plentiful on-site amenities that include a heated indoor pool, a sauna, plus activity and games rooms, and from which to explore beautiful Dorset.  A big plus, for enthusiastic anglers in your group, is free access to 3 onsite coarse fishing lakes.



Inside this 2 Bedroom Holiday Rental with Hot Tub in the Dorset AONB

The holiday home itself is all on ground level and has level access throughout, making it in particular, an appealing choice for families or those who prefer to avoid stairs.  There is underfloor heating throughout, along with Wifi access.

The accommodation comprises:

•    A sociable open plan living area with a spacious lounge area with plus leather sofas and a 50" Smart TV,  and a fully kitted kitchen/diner. Eat at the adjoining dining table or alfresco in sunny weather on the private terrace (French doors open out from the living room to the terrace).

•    There are two very smart comfy bedrooms. Both have king-sized beds (zip-linked so can be arranged as twins on request) and en-suite shower rooms. The sofa bed in the living room can accommodate an additional two guests.

Outside is a private patio with garden furniture where you can dine alfresco or watch the sunset, as well as a generous area of shared lawn.  Also outdoors is where you'll find the inviting private bubbly hot tub, ideal for a spot of pampering.

Bring towels for swimming pool and beach. Sorry, no dogs.

Spend the day exploring the surrounding sublime country lanes, or take yourselves further afield to Sherbourne (12 miles) to visit the two castles (one castle is a ruin and the newer one has must-see Capability Brown gardens). Finish up with a mosey around the shops, maybe pick up an antique or two. Nearer to home stop off at one of the many super country pubs for dinner.

With the coast around 20 miles away, you may want to pack buckets, spades and suntan lotion and head for the sandy beach of Weymouth. Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens and Sea World, both in Weymouth are also worth a visit.
