Overview

About the property

House in Chalmington, Nr. Dorchester, Dorset, England - Idyllic Rural Setting, Near Jurassic Coast And Historic Towns Of Dorchester And Sherborne

The Granary was rebuilt 8 years ago and affords spacious family accommodation. It has been designed with wheelchair users very much in mind, with level floor surfaces on the ground floor and a downstairs bedroom with en-suite wheelchair-friendly bathroom with shower. We are M2 accessible level accredited by Quality in Tourism. Parking for 4 cars is next to the Granary on smooth stone surfaces allowing easy access. It benefits from all modern features without losing its farm house charm. In June 2013 we installed a biomass boiler. There is a large sitting room with far reaching views of the Dorset landscape. The separate large kitchen is ideal for celebrating special occasions with family and friends. There are four en suite bedrooms. There are two patios for outdoor eating and far reaching views of the countryside. There are plenty of lovely walks from the property. There are great pubs and restaurants nearby, plenty of places to visit and lovely beaches to enjoy.

Why Jason Squire chose Dorset

It is a lovely part of the world. Beautiful countryside and near the coast.

What makes this farmhouse unique

You are near the beach yet in very pretty unspoilt countryside. This house is very well equiped, has full wheel chair access and is set on a lovely farm on the River Frome. You also have the option of camping by the river.

Fantastic house in a great location - dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs -What can I say - the house was wonderful - 4 big bedrooms each with their own bathrooms. Huge kitchen with great big table to eat brekkie and dinner round.Well equipped kitchen - lots of seating in the living room and really comfy beds. Enclosed courtyard for the two dogs was perfect as well as another area to sit and look out across at the views. Location was peaceful , scenic and and just far enough for visiting all the coastal areas like Lulworth, Durdle door, Weymouth, Bridport. Owners were friendly and we even bought some of their lamb to take home to feast on ! Would definitely recommend a stay here - will hopefully return in the future. Thank you for a most comfy and welcome stay.

Recommendations - views at Lulworth and Durdle Door is a must

Lulworth Cove Inn - lovey pub with good food

The Fox and Hounds pub - Cattistock - small local pub but food was fantastic !

Bridport - West Bay beach (where they filmed some of Broadchurch) great beach - lovely walk round the harbour with a stop for fish and chips ! Purleys ice cream - lots of flavours and just yum !!

Eype beach - dogs allowed - very windy - one track lane to reach but worth it.

Weymouth - typical seaside promenade - didn't get a chance to go to Chesil beach but told it is one of the good ones.

Cannot wait to return to Dorset and explore more of the area.

Lovely accommodation, gorgeous location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Granary. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and we loved the ensuite bathrooms for every room. The kitchen was the icing on the cake with everything we needed to cook whatever we wanted. We loved walking around the farm, seeing the lambs and the horses, and going down to the river to relax. The perfect getaway.

The location was central for so many places to visit in Dorset and was so peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was excellent with wonderful views and catered for our disabled Mum of 94 so well. We do not hesitate in recommending this cottage for all family generations.

Tranquil house in beautiful surroundings. So much room and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Granary. The en suite bedrooms were ideal for our extended family and the large kitchen and living room great for getting together. The weather was kind most of the time and we were able to sit on the lovely terrace. Our 2 year old grandson was so happy there and has wonderful memories of helping Jason feed the lambs. We had two 'beach days' at Weymouth- crowded but wonderful sand for digging and donkeys too! On our last day Col and I escaped to the peaceful cliff path near Burton Bradstock and sat for a blissful two hours on a deserted Chesil Beach.
