Carter’s Barn Farm is set in beautiful rolling countryside boasting spectacular views. The Granary and Teal’s Den are our delightful holiday cottages, positioned along a private lane with an abundance of trees, hedges, fields of crops and wildlife.
This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, nestling on the edge of the Piddle Valley with easy access to the Jurassic coast and Thomas Hardy’s Dorset.
The area is fantastic for walkers, bike riding, bird watching, horse riding and water sports with easy access to the coastal towns. You can stay in our lovingly restored and spacious four-bedroom stone barn conversion or our cosy one-bedroom retreat. The cottage will provide you with a home from home experience and should prove to be a great choice for families, couples and friends seeking a relaxing rural hideaway. There are excellent pubs and inns for wining and dining in the local villages of Piddlehinton, Piddletrenthide, Buckland Newton and Plush.
The Granary is a stunning barn conversion providing well equipped self-catering accommodation. It sleeps up to eight guests, is perfect for families, friends, shooting parties and riding groups. There is a enclosed private garden with a patio area in the garden for barbecues and an area of lawn where children can play safely, so you can all enjoy spending quality time on a balmy evening. With a football table and table tennis in the games room, there is certainly plenty to do that will add to your overall enjoyment. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate dogs in this property.
We also have Teals Den which does accommodate dogs at the owners discretion.
Teals Den is a spacious with 1 double bedroom, an open plan kitchen/ diner / lounge, which also has the benefit of a sofa bed, allowing the property to accommodate a further two guests. There is also a utility room/dog’s bedroom with stable doors leading to a small garden area with patio and seating. There is also parking for two cars.
Our holiday cottages are part of our private working farm. We also offer accommodation for your horse at an additional cost. Explore the beautiful Dorset downs over miles of bridlepaths extending the farm, no immediate roadwork involved. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
Whatever the size of your party and whichever holiday cottage you may choose, we are confident you will have a memorable holiday in beautiful rural Dorset.
