West Bay cottage description

The Old Barn is a beautiful holiday cottage, converted from an old cow byre and situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Downstairs is a large farmhouse kitchen with a washing machine, dishwasher and microwave which links to a large living area with extremely comfortable furnishings, wood burning stove, TV, DVD and video. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, both en-suite. The first bedroom has a cast iron double bed, the second bedroom has a king-size bed which can be converted in to two singles if required. Let includes all electricity and linen.


The farm: The farm is a site of special scientific interest and produces organic beef, lamb and mutton, which are for sale during your stay (subject to availability).

Walks Etc: The Wessex Ridgeway and the Jubilee Trail cross the farm and there are many long and short walks to try without the need of a car. The cottage is six miles from the sea and there is fishing in the River Hooke, which makes up one of the farm's borders.

                          The Old Barn is on an organic farm in the magical Kingcombe Valley amid 600 acres of the Dorset Wildlife Trust's Kingcombe Meadows which are world renowned for the variety of flora and fauna. The Wessex Ridgeway and the Jubilee Trail cross the farm and there are many long and short walks to try without the need of a car. The cottage is six miles from the sea and the Jurassic coastline. An excellent base for those wishing to explore Thomas Hardy country. It is also only half an hours drive to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage HQ; so an excellent base for anyone wishing to join in on any of activities there.
