This spacious, beautifully converted barn offers light, airy and modern accommodation for up to five people whilst still retaining many of its original features.

This pretty barn conversion is situated amidst the owner’s 130 acres of wooded farmland, just three miles from the centre of Sturminster Newton. Expertly renovated to an exceptionally high standard, this property boasts exposed beams throughout and provides wonderful views over the Blackmore Vale. With two charming bedrooms, a well equipped fitted kitchen and a traditional sitting room, this is a spacious property. Access to the pretty garden is via French windows in the lounge, which adds to the overall impression of space. Close by there are numerous footpaths and bridleways, providing excellent walking opportunities whilst the town of Sherborne is just 11 miles away.


Where do we start! It was quiet peaceful and in such a nice location, with lovely hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and the garden was enclosed so it was good for the dog too.
Mr Jansen

A lovely, peaceful place. The scenery around is very rural and attractive. Easily accessible walks nearby. Some interesting places a short drive away.
Mrs Everitt

Peaceful and rural setting with beautiful views. Clean and comfortable accommodation. Friendly and helpful owners.
Mrs Childs

We have stayed at The Stables before and find it very comfortable for us and our small dog. The garden is ideal. We like the location as it is in a rural area with lots of walks on your doorstop and not too far to drive to the local shops and good pubs. We will stay again.
Mrs Joce

The owners were very friendly. A beautiful cottage up a long drive with electric gates for security, horses grazing in the fields and being stabled very close to the cottage. Very quiet and remote but close enough to drive to shops.
Mrs Blackall
