    The Old Engine House sleeping up to 5 guests

    A converted barn in a great location for exploring west Dorset and the surrounding counties with plenty of attractions for all ages.
    In a great location, in the heart of delightful west Dorset, this detached property is situated on a working beef farm, and the owners live next door. There’s glorious country scenery and walking in the area, so it’s great for dog walking, cycling and enjoying lovely village pubs to wine and dine in. There are many attractions nearby including Forde Abbey and Gardens right on your doorstep, and a local craft centre nearby. Within very easy driving distance is the ever popular World Heritage Jurassic Coast, with its stunning scenery and the seaside resorts of Lyme Regis, Charmouth and West Bay. Scenery, boating, fishing and sandy beach can be enjoyed at Lyme Regis, as well as fossil hunting, all making for a memorable holiday. Head inland, and you will find the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Haynes International Motor Museum with its classic car collection. Further afield you can visit the Clarks Village factory outlet, Glastonbury Tor, the cathedral city of Wells and Cheddar Gorge. Beach 10 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    "We had a wonderful 5 days at the engine house. A beautiful barn conversion, meticuloualy clean amd extremely comfortable for the 4 of us. Great location to explore West Dorset, Devon and Somerset. The village of Drimpton is very small and quiet - we enjoyed the peace! The local pub is very reasonably priced for decent pub food and drinks. Would definitely recommend the engine house to anyone looking for a home from home."
