About the property

House in Chalmington, Nr. Dorchester, Dorset, England - Idyllic Rural Setting, Near Jurassic Coast And Historic Towns Of Dorchester And Sherborne

The Granary was rebuilt 8 years ago and affords spacious family accommodation. It has been designed with wheelchair users very much in mind, with level floor surfaces on the ground floor and a downstairs bedroom with en-suite wheelchair-friendly bathroom with shower. We are M2 accessible level accredited by Quality in Tourism. Parking for 4 cars is next to the Granary on smooth stone surfaces allowing easy access. It benefits from all modern features without losing its farm house charm. In June 2013 we installed a biomass boiler. There is a large sitting room with far reaching views of the Dorset landscape. The separate large kitchen is ideal for celebrating special occasions with family and friends. There are four en suite bedrooms. There are two patios for outdoor eating and far reaching views of the countryside. There are plenty of lovely walks from the property. There are great pubs and restaurants nearby, plenty of places to visit and lovely beaches to enjoy.

Why Jason Squire chose Dorset

It is a lovely part of the world. Beautiful countryside and near the coast.

What makes this farmhouse unique

You are near the beach yet in very pretty unspoilt countryside. This house is very well equiped, has full wheel chair access and is set on a lovely farm on the River Frome. You also have the option of camping by the river.

Warm and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in the farmhouse. It was a family get together for a 90th birthday and we were all a bit concerned as to how things would turn out- often disabled access properties may be functional but not so homely. This one, however, was both! The house was perfect in all respects particularly for my 90 year old Dad who has Parkinsons, is confined to a wheelchair and is generally very frail. He loved every minute of our stay! Aside from the practical aspects of the house, it was a great location with lovely views and a sunny terrace (which we were able to use even in Feb!). The log burner at night made it very cosy and warm and the huge eat in kitchen provided the perfect room for all our feasting. We also really enjoyed exploring the farm estate and walking along the river which borders the property. Lots of things to do nearby too - we explored Bridport (a nearby market town), the coast and found some cosy country pubs (with disabled access). Jason was a fantastic ' host' who was very responsive and kind in meeting our various requests. I would very much recommend this property to anyone wanting a tranquil and peaceful holiday in Dorset. Moreover it is a particular treasure for any wheelchair users. Thank you so much for a wonderful stayJason!

Our third visit to this delightful property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed returning again to this well equipped cottage with all bedrooms en-suite. A ground floor bedroom with a wet room was great for me as I have MS.

It is lovely to escape to rural Dorset yet be only 20 minutes by car from Yeovil and Dorchester. We loved the therapeutic log fire (with a wee dram!) each evening.

Cosy, comfortable and ideal for our family of five.

We had a wonderful family holiday. The accommodation couldn't have been better especially the kitchen table everyone gathered there in the morning for breakfast and made plans for the day. We made some very special memories which will stay with us for ever.

Fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The Granery was everything and more. The outlook from the terrace was super and very restful with only the sheep and the birds to listen to. Apart from the children playing Badminton. Three generations all loved it and the dog loved all the walks. We would certainly visit again. (And the beef from Lucy was enjoyed on our first Sunday home). Jackie Davis

Wonderful

Cottage was larger than expected, very comfortable. Difficulty to find at first sat ab took us to the wrong place. But as I had googled the granary recognised the location. Plenty of room in all the bedrooms even for a 6ft 4 man although he had the upstairs double the other beds were too short, he would have had a problem in the twin room bathroom but otherwise an excellent place to stay for either a week or long weekend. Local pub in cattistock was lovely serving local cider and food. Would definitely recommend a stay at the granary.
