About the Owner

My husband Tim and I feel very lucky to have been able to bring up our 6 children in two of the most beautiful areas in England. We would like to invite you to enjoy our homestead in Hampshire, in a lovely 2-bed annexe, set amongst acres of farmland and woodland. Or to enjoy family/friends gatherings in our 6-bedroomed farmhouse in Dorset with indoor heated swimming pool, log burner in the lounge and use of the tennis court. We feel very privileged to be surrounded by such stunning countryside and never tire of exploring the footpaths and bridleways on our doorstep. We hope that you will enjoy it too, whether on foot, on horseback or by bicycle.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

A great sized property - perfect for an extended family holiday. We were v.lucky with weather but even if we weren't we would have been fine - the kids loved the indoor pool. Thank you so much.

Location

From the Owner

We purchased Barnhayes Farmhouse for its idyllic rural location in a unspoilt area of Dorset. The property enjoys uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside due to its elevated position. The indoor swimming pool, games room with table tennis and tennis court have proved to be a great success and keeps the whole family entertained. Whilst relaxing in front of the large log burner in the lounge is the perfect way to end the day. The patio with seating beneath a stunning planted pergola is ideal for a bbq with the front patio being the place to sit to watch the sun go down.
