A newly refurbished (with love) barn in a beautiful semi-rural setting in the 'village of Throop'. The Barn was built in the late 1700's/ early 1800's as a malthouse, an outbuilding for the neighbouring Stour View, a late Georgian House built in 1790.
The malthouse was used to make ships biscuits in the latter 1800's and as a shooting range for a local rifle club in the mid 20th century. It was converted into three residential dwellings in the early 1990's.
It has the added bonus of its proximity to Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and the New Forest and is a short drive from the miles of award winning sandy Bournemouth beaches. There is also Castle Point, a very popular shopping centre that is 2 mins drive away and has many of the major shops plus restaurants and coffee shops. However if you require peace and quiet, the most you will hear in this cottage is the happy neigh of the horse in the field opposite (my children have named him Alfie). There is a lovely walk from the front door and fishing can also be arranged. I welcome your dogs (we have 2) and your children, if there is anything I haven't provided (our children are older and we've forgotten) then just shout. I've based this cottage on our many happy stays elsewhere and hope that I've re-created that for you. The Old Barn consists of 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles with en-suites and 2 singles with a master bathroom.
Downstairs there is a large kitchen with range cooker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, island, sofa, refectory table and a digital radio. There is also a downstairs toilet. The large lounge has ample seating, a woodburner, T.V, DVD player, B&O bluetooth speaker and Amazon Fire Stick. There's also the 'Boot Room' to hang your wet coats and to dry boots where you'll find the tumble dryer. Please don't hesitate to enquire with any request that might make you stay easier.
Parking is available immediately in front of the house and there is also a space to the rear. I can also offer the use of the garage for storage of bikes etc, please enquire.
There is only a small communal area at the front of the Barn, no back garden.
There is a popular pub a 15 min walk away.
