    “A perfect haven in this lovely part ...”

    A perfect haven in this lovely part of Dorset. This converted barn has been beautifully done with some nice touches amongst it's obvious attributes - light and airy living room to eaves height, well equipped and thought out kitchen, two ground floor bedrooms with oh so comfortable beds and crisp cotton sheets, a shower room with a great shower and a luxurious large first floor double with integral bathroom.

    A perfect haven in this lovely part of Dorset. This converted barn has been beautifully done with some nice touches amongst it's obvious attributes - light and airy living room to eaves height, well equipped and thought out kitchen, two ground floor bedrooms with oh so comfortable beds and crisp cotton sheets, a shower room with a great shower and a luxurious large first floor double with integral bathroom. Outside there is a very private raised sun trap decking area with comfortable seating and open air dining for six. The garden is thoughtfully laid out with interesting planting and our dog (if we had one with us) would have spent hours in his personal dog wash ! Very attentive hosts (and sun, sun sun) made this a peaceful relaxed holiday. The village is full of Dorset stone and rewards a stroll, the pub is cheerful, traditional and friendly, there is an excellent village store so no need to food shop in Sherbourne (unless you just have to go to Waitrose) and gourmet pubs are to be found within 20 minutes drive - our favourite was the New Inn at Cerne Abbas. And the village church clock enchanted with its chimes - I have tried to research another similar carillon, but failed (so far !). We shall be going back again to Bears again as soon as opportunity permits.

The property

Bear’s Cottage is a superbly presented detached barn conversion located in the quiet rural village of Yetminister near Sherborne.

Full of character and Grade II listed, Bear’s cottage is set in the heart of the village.

Beautifully furnished throughout, providing spacious, contemporary accommodation over two floors, the cottage is ideal for friends or families who want to spend time together in glorious Dorset surroundings.

This delightful holiday home is set over two floors.

Upstairs is the master suite with a super king-size, zip/link bed, served by an open accessed en-suite with a bath, hand-held shower, ‘Jack and Jill’ basins and a WC.

Coming through the front door downstairs you enter into the main lounge, dining and kitchen area.

This is a fabulous double floor height, light and airy space, flanked on both sides by walls of glass and around the feature clearview woodburning stove there are two sofas.

There is also a dining table that comfortably seats six and a spacious and well-equipped kitchen.

Heading towards the stairs gives you access to the ground floor shower room and two downstairs bedrooms, all of which have wooden flooring throughout.

Bear’s Cottage is accessed via a decking and garden area from the parking places at the end of the drive.

Here you will find an outside seating area and small cottage garden as well as a log store and dog washing area.

Yestminister village was built almost entirely of honey coloured limestone, timeless and idyllic, with a pub and shop five minutes' walk away.

The ancient town of Sherborne lies on the delightful banks of the River Yeo set amidst glorious unspoilt countryside and boasts many picturesque buildings, ancient Inns and quaint shops.

Probably best known for its beautiful abbey and two stunning castles, boasting superbly landscaped gardens.

Sherborne makes an ideal place for a day of sightseeing or a quiet afternoon stroll.

A short drive will take you to the stunning house and gardens at Stourhead and the sublime Dorset Heritage Coast, whilst just across the border in Somerset is the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, offering stunning displays of historic aircraft, including Concorde.

A fantastic location for all the family.

A lovely contemporary cottage, in an ideal location to explore some of the best of the West Country.

About the location

YETMINSTER

Beer Hackett 1.7 miles; Closworth 3 miles; Sherborne 6 miles

Yetminister village was built almost entirely of honey coloured limestone. This comes partly from the age of its houses, many of which date back to the 17th century but also from its lack of major through traffic. Yetminster Fair has a claim to be one of the oldest street fairs in Dorset, having started in the 13th century under a charter granted to the Bishop of Salisbury. There was a gap after the 1947 fair until it was re-started in 1975 and now it is firmly established on the second Saturday in July. The fair is not only one of the oldest but one of the biggest fairs in the Wessex area. The village church of St Andrews has a 300 year old faceless clock which chimes the national anthem six times a day. Yetminster is served by the White Hart public House and a village shop. The ancient town of Sherborne lies on the delightful banks of the River Yeo set amidst glorious unspoilt countryside and boasts many picturesque buildings, ancient Inns and quaint shops.
