The property

Milborne St Andrew 2.8 miles.

Situated at the heart of a working farm within the beautiful Dorset AONB, this converted barn offers spacious and stylish accommodation for a relaxing Dorset holiday.

Middleton Barn offers an idyllic country break, and if you holiday in lambing season in April, you might be lucky enough to see gorgeous lambs ambling around the fields, a wonderful treat especially for little ones.

Find the property tucked by the stables, and enter into the stunning sitting room where you will enjoy settling down onto the large corner sofa perfectly placed before the widescreen TV, while still feeling the heat from the woodburning stove in the corner.

As the fire roars within this light and modern environment, you will marvel at the transformation this barn has undergone to become such a contemporary and luxury holiday home.

Leave the lofty high ceilings of the sitting room and come into the kitchen/diner, with a large window flooding in the natural light which reflects off the white units, and enhances the breakfast bar made from beautiful timber.

Here you can use a good range of appliances to whip up tasty meals with your family and enjoy them around the country-style dining table overlooked by delightful art hanging on the walls.

Completing the downstairs is the large wet room and a double bedroom, making it ideal for those less able to enjoy a tranquil sleeping spot and a contemporary bathroom to freshen up in.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, and within the sloping ceiling of the barn roof find another double room as well as a single bedroom with a pull out truckle bed tucked underneath, along with a well-presented shower room.

Whether it’s a crisp winter afternoon, or a temperate summer evening, take a dip in the private hot tub and relax into your holiday in style, afterwards enjoying some alfresco dining out on the decking in the ornate outdoor furniture.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming property, then explore the village of Milton Abbas, a chocolate-box haven found between Blandford Forum and Dorchester, it is home to thatched roof cottages with roses around the doors, as well as the gracious buildings of the Abbey Church and Abbey House, the latter now being a private school.

The village rests on the route of the long distance Jubilee Trail which runs through the county of Dorset for 90-miles, so you won’t be short of terrain to explore.

The county town of Dorchester is not far and offers many attractions like visiting gorgeous historic houses, wandering over beautiful estates and observing wildlife, with Badger Watch Dorset, as well as the many shops, pubs and eateries to choose from.

Middleton Barn makes for a wonderful base where you’ll encounter real Dorset farm life among all the other adventures you and your loved ones will get up to!

About the location

The peaceful village of Milborne St Andrew, midway between Dorchester and the Georgian market town from Blandford Forum is on the side of the Winterbourne Valley in the Dorset Downs. The valley is named for the seasonal stream which runs from springs high up on the chalk downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering glorious walks and superb views. Langhams vineyard, 2 miles away, offers tours and tasting days.
