This barn conversion (or cowstall conversion, I think, to be totally accurate) looks newly done. It's well equipped, with a dishwasher in the kitchen, a very good shower room, and a generously sized bedroom and bed. The living area has a woodburning stove - not strictly necessary as there is also very efficient central heating, but always welcome if you're staying in winter (or one of those chilly wet spells in other seasons) and want to feel cosy. The garden is lovely, even in November, and must be wonderful in the summer. The views are amazing and it's in a great location, very quiet but an easy drive to anywhere on the Isle of Purbeck. There are a couple of doors in the cottage that lead directly into the owners' house or garden which for some people might reduce the sense of privacy, but it wasn't a problem for us. Our only niggle was the seating provision in the living room - a small sofa which does seat two people, but only if you sit neatly upright side by side, so there's no lounging in front of the tv here! In the summer though that probably wouldn't matter as you'd want to be outside enjoying the garden.
