A beautiful newly renovated house, set in its own gardens, located in remote countryside outside Cranborne on the Dorset/Hampshire border. With four bedrooms and a large, spacious kitchen, this is ideal for families or groups of friends.
This old farmhouse combines many features of character with an airy and spacious modern feel.
On arrival, via the entrance hall, step into a large fresh farmhouse kitchen complete with AGA and generously sized kitchen island. With a dining table at the far end and a wood burner set into the old inglenook fireplace, everyone will want to gather in this wonderful room, whether for eating, cooking or generally relaxing in front of the fire. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a high chair available for younger ones.
Beyond the kitchen is the sitting room where there are two large comfortable sofas and a couple of armchairs, all within range of the warmth from another wood burner set into the fireplace, and positioned so that everyone may watch the TV/DVD beside the fire. There is a door which leads into the garden from the sitting room.
For evenings by the fireside, there is a selection of board games including Monopoly, Scrabble, Backgammon, Chess and packs of cards. There is even a game of Snakes and Ladders and Happy Families for younger visitors.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all overlooking the garden, and the two bathrooms. The master bedroom at the far end of the landing has a superking size bed and plenty of space. The middle bedroom also has a superking bed and the smallest of the rooms on this floor has two single beds.
A travel cot (own bedding required) for babies up to 2 years is available and will easily fit into the master bedroom.
Up some windy stairs to the top floor there is the fourth bedroom which has a double bed, known as the Cabin Bed, built into the eaves. This is ideal for children or young adults who don't mind a 'climb' into bed.
