Property Details

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Chisel Barn is a new conversion designed and fitted to the highest standards. The barn consists of two self contained properties, Whites Ground and Foxditch. Both offer light and airy accommodation with a large double height kitchen and living space.

Chisel Barn Foxditch and Whites Ground are both furnished to the highest of standards and offer luxury accommodation. The properties have retained many original features including exposed beams and limestone flooring. The properties are set in stunning countryside and offer far reaching views from the furnished terrace.

The barns were the base for a large and successful dairy enterprise and remain part of a working farm, with the adjoining buildings still actively being used for stock.

The magnificent and commanding views look over the River Stour valley, the dairy pastures of the Blackmore Vale and 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. A short walk across the farm takes you through a wood and past a lake to the excellent amenities of Child Okeford, or up the steep slopes to the top of Hambledon Hill where, on a clear day, there are views for many miles. Hambledon Hill is a classic example of an Iron Age hill fort and is now a National Nature Reserve famous for its wild flowers.

This is just one of many and varied walks which also include the Trailway along the old Somerset and Dorset Railway (and the newly restored Shillingstone station) to Sturminster Newton and Blandford Forum.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! by Martyn Thomas, Mullacott. 13.07.14 on January 25th 2017

I cannot rate this property highly enough. There were ten of us in our party so we rented both properties that comprise Chisel Barn. The property itself is second to none, finished to a very high standard, extremely comfortable and spacious. Everyone in our party commented on how nice the property was and on the setting. The views are fantastic! We took our two dogs as well and there are lots of good walks in and around the farm. So many places are extremely accessible from here; Bournemouth, Poole, Sandbanks, Studland, Lulworth, Weymouth and Durdle Door all within an hour. Many other fascinating places; even closer of course. Absolutely loved it!

OUTSTANDING ACCOMMODATION by Tim Wotton, North Yorkshire. 07.09.14 on January 25th 2017

Lovely location and excellent facilities, outstanding accommodation....we have an elderly mother and with the wide doorways and excellent bathroom facilities she was able to cope well.
