Chisel Barn

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.

Basic barn stabling and grazing is available at an additional charge of £10 a horse
