Chisel Barn is a sought after and highly praised barn conversion in the most lovely part of the Dorset countryside between Blandford Forum, Sturminster Newton and Shaftesbury.
In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty sitting under Hambledon Hill and looking down on to the River Stour, Chisel Barn consists of two, light and airy properties called Fox Ditch and Whites Ground. They have large double height kitchens and living space and both are furnished to the highest of standards. They have retained the original barn features including exposed beams, but also offer contemporary levels of comfort including double glazing and underfloor heating. All rooms are on the ground floor. They both have wifi internet, flatscreen TV complete with Freeview, DVD player and IPOD docking stations.
Whites Ground has three double bedrooms. Fox Ditch has two double bedrooms. The two properties can be rented together offering five double bedrooms.
The barns were the base for a large and successful dairy enterprise and remain part of a working farm, with stock-cattle and sheep grazing in the surrounding fields.
There are far reaching and spectacular views over the River Stour valley, the dairy pastures of the Blackmore Vale, the churches of Shillingstone and Child Okeford to the south and west, and the Iron Age forts of Hambledon Hill to the north and Hod Hill to the east.
