Amidst peace and rural seclusion, yet only 4 miles from the county town of Dorchester, this spacious and very comfortable house stands on the owners' 160 acre working farm. Converted from the former stables and adjoining two farm cottages, it offers accommodation of a very high standard – a wonderfully relaxing base from which to explore Dorset's lovely Hardy country and nearby Jurassic coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Broadmayne village (˝ mile) boasts a pub and shop, and Dorchester offers a myriad delights including four museums, a Roman villa and Maiden Castle. The coast, 3 miles, has been awarded World Heritage status – an area extending from beyond Lyme Regis to Poole Harbour, with glorious scenery, walks and beaches as well as plenty of fossil hunting. Inland, attractions as varied as the Cerne Abbas Giant and Bovington Tank Museum invite exploration, a network of footpaths and bridleways starts from the door, and bicycles are available (foc) for visitors' use. Golf, fishing and riding are found nearby.
