Located in glorious Dorset countryside and within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is known as the Blackmore Vale, this contemporary timber-clad, semi-detached converted barn offers light and stylish accommodation. Tallet Barn West sits in a wonderful setting on an organic farm, on top of a deserted medieval village, now listed as a Scheduled Monument. The airy accommodation includes a double height kitchen with separate dining area, and a comfortable living space with sofas, television, a well-stocked bookcase and sliding glass doors. There is also a ground floor family shower room, and on the first floor, a separate cloakroom, a king-size bedroom with balcony window and a twin bedroom completes the contemporary accommodation.

Located at the end of a farm track to Darknoll Farm, the property is within walking distance of Okeford Fitzpaine village centre with its village shop, church and pub. Just three miles away is the popular market town of Sturminster Newton with its shops, cafes, mill and museum, and there are numerous quaint Dorset villages within easy reach. From the front door of the property there are opportunities for enjoyable walks across the surrounding fields and footpaths, and with the Wessex Ridgeway on your doorstep, you are spoilt for choice. Hambledon Hill Iron Age Hill Fort and its neighbour Hod Hill are definitely worth a visit and afford outstanding views across three counties.
