The property

Nestled in the sleepy village of Dewlish, surrounded by rolling Dorset hills and tranquil landscape scenery, is Churn House.

This 18th century converted barn enjoys a quiet corner of a courtyard, embracing the edge of a 500-acre dairy and arable farm.

This is the perfect getaway for celebrating a special occasion with your loved ones or for bringing large groups together for corporate events, in the heart of Dorset countryside.

Full of character, Churn House offers attractive brick and flint walls, pine panelling and exposed beams, highlighting its charming framework.

Gather around the fire in the sitting room on a wintry evening and catch up on your day together, there is plenty of space to spread yourselves out and make the most of your down time.

The farmhouse-style kitchen is well-equipped for rustling up a tasty meal for everyone, with a dining table, traditional-style dresser and plenty of storage.

You have a choice of bedrooms to catch your rest in the evening, two of which offer flexible sleeping arrangements with zip/link beds.

There is also a travel cot available for those travelling with little ones and a lovely bathroom and shower room to accommodate all.

Enjoy an afternoon on your very own patio with a refreshing drink in hand or make the most of the shared heated pool and games room on-site.

With bridle paths trailing from the farm and many picturesque walks to enjoy with the family, you won't be stuck for things to do.

There are also several inns nearby and the local village pub is just a stroll away, for those evenings you fancy a pint on draft or a bite to eat out.

The area offers a rich history, with much of the landscape featured in Thomas Hardy's novels.

Pay a visit to the village of Tolpuddle, made famous by the Tolpuddle Martyrs, National Trust's Cloud Hills and Athelhampton House and Gardens.

The Dorset coast is also easily accessible, with unspoilt chalk cliffs, and the notable beauty spot of Lulworth Cove.

Choose Churn House for a superb Dorset holiday with the whole family.

About the location


Dorchester 7 miles; Blandford Forum 7 miles.

The idyllic small Dorset village of Dewlish nestles in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, west of the Purbeck Hills, beside the chalk streamed Devil’s Brook, a tributary of the quaintly named River Piddle. Surrounded by chalk downland, rich in agriculture and beloved by Thomas Hardy, Dewlish offers visitors a tranquil rural Dorset village holiday base. There are numerous well-marked footpaths extending out across this unspoilt countryside, and after enjoying a scenic stroll you can reward yourself with refreshment at the friendly local pub. A short drive takes you to the county market town of Dorchester, where you are spoilt for choice when it comes to a bit of retail therapy offering an array of interesting outlets from small independent shops to the usual high street retailers, together with a wide selection of different types of eateries, catering for all budgets. Take in excursions to the Dorset Jurassic Coast, picturesque Milton Abbas, or Tolpuddle, the home of the trade union movement, Athelhampton House or Monkey World and the Bovington Tank Museum, all an easy drive.
