Luxuriate in the peaceful surroundings and feel your worries melt away...

The Carriage house luxury self-catering barn in Dorset


Stylishly furnished self-catering home in Dorset with thoughtful touches throughout, The Carriage House has comfort high on the agenda. The interior styling is modern with a classic edge, whilst simultaneously displaying characterful flourishes of romanticism and charm. A palette of muted chalky hues provide a calming backdrop for a well-earned restful break within the beautiful verdant Dorset countryside. 

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Three bedrooms, each with an en suite, all sit under the eaves of the high-vaulted ceilings creating a cosy ambience throughout the upstairs. Two of the bedrooms can be arranged either as twin rooms or king-size doubles, depending on the requirements of your group. Think luxury stand-alone bath tubs, rainfall showers, views out across the valley, sumptuous linens and a blissfully uninterrupted peaceful night's sleep. 


Winding your way through the honey-coloured stone cottages past the church and quaint village pub, guests arriving at The Carriage House will be both enchanted and inspired. The peaceful private walled garden is a lovely place to sit and ponder, taking in the peace and quiet of rural village life.

For Relaxation

Winter nights are best spent snuggled up in front of the logburner, or taking a long bubbly soak in your en suite tub with a glass of fizz and a good book. If a bucket-and-spades adventure is more your style, then a short drive finds you and the family at some of Dorset's most beautiful stretches of golden sand - memories made here will last a lifetime. For the more energetic, a tennis court is available for an impromptu knock-around or perhaps a more serious mini-tournament with your fellow guests - followed of course, by a sundowner during which you can re-live (or forget) each point won!


There is parking for up to two cars. The property has a washing machine, tumble dryer and a microwave. Please note that the property doesn't have mobile phone signal, but there is a landline telephone with an honesty box system in place. The tennis court is available to play on from 10-11am and 4-5pm. The owner lives adjacent to the property.
