Chisel Barn With Shepherds Hut

Stylish barn conversions and bespoke shepherds hut with spectacular views over the beautiful Dorset countryside.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Chisel Barn is a barn 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. The bespoke Shepherds Hut can accommodate three people, sits in the garden of Whites Ground and is Farrow and Bull painted and attractively decorated.

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 woodland 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 to Sturminster Newton and Blandford Forum.

For guests who wish to bring their horses, Chisel Barn offers basic barn stabling and grazing at an additional charge of £10 a horse, bedding by prior arrangement and use of the Cross Country Course (beginner to 3’3”), dependant on availability. However, guests would need to supply their own feed, water buckets and other equipment.
