East View Barn is situated on the edge of Melbury Osmond, a quintessentially Dorset village which appears in Thomas Hardy’s novel “The Woodlanders”. Thomas Hardy’s mother lived in this beautiful Dorset village as a child, and the village appears in his novel as “Little Hintock”.
The barn has been carefully converted to create a comfortable holiday property, with three separate bedrooms and an open-plan living area boasting exposed beams and tasteful lighting. The property is situated next to a bridleway and a deer park, the perfect location for enjoying a country stroll before coming back to enjoy a cup of coffee or something stronger on the private terrace.
The heart of the property is the open-plan kitchen and sitting room, with a dining table at one end and sofas at the other. The kitchen boasts an American-style fridge freezer with an ice machine and filtered water, dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave. In the sitting room are wooden floors, comfortable sofas and a living flame gas fire along with a Smart television, DVD player (including a selection of DVDs) and Bluetooth speaker. There are three bedrooms (one with an en-suite) and a family bathroom. Enjoy summer al fresco dining on the private terrace within the enclosed garden.
As a guest at East View Barn, you’re welcome to use the village tennis court (most guests bring their own racquets and balls).
