Field Barn House and Cottage Ringstead

Sleeps 13, from £1225 to £2435 per week

Field Barn House and Cottage is a Bohemian 5 bedroom barn conversion with a separate 2 bedroom cottage set in extensive grounds in an idyllic peaceful location, with uninterrupted rural views, yet within walking distance of the lovely village of Ringstead with a village shop and pub. As the family holiday home of a renowned sculptor, the barn is rustically furnished and has a wealth of original features. It has plenty of space for families and friends with a stunning central vaulted sitting room, rustic country kitchen with an Aga, leading through into a charming dining area, plus a relaxed TV room. Outside there’s a large walled garden with terrace, plus a huge field which is ideal for ball-games. With no near neighbours, this is the ideal “get away from it all” place to stay, yet only 5 minutes drive to the beautiful coast at Thornham or Holme-next-the-Sea.

Please note that outside peak periods, the main barn (sleeping 9) and the cottage (sleeping 4) may be rented separately.
