Attractive barn conversion property, an ideal couple’s retreat located on the owner’s non-working farm in South Somerset, within easy reach of numerous beaches.

Located just a short distance from the Somerset/Dorset border, this property is within easy reach of some of the region’s best-loved attractions. The Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton is just a short drive away, whilst the Haynes Motor Museum is also nearby. The famous beaches of the Jurassic Coast lie just fifteen miles south of the property, including those at West Bay, Charmouth, and Lyme Regis. A visit to Axminster is a must for those who love exploring local towns, especially those with an interest in food, who will not want to miss a visit to the River Cottage Deli.

On entering this single-storey property, guests will be able to make themselves immediately at home in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is dominated by the large bi-fold doors that flood the room with light. The kitchen area, to the rear of the space, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and overlooks the two-seater dining table. In the lounge area a comfortable sofa allows guests to relax in front of the TV/DVD or maybe just open up the doors and enjoy the fresh air and peaceful surroundings. Located just off the living area, there is one bedroom: a king-size room which benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC.

Outside, there is a patio garden to the front of the property, which, with its BBQ and garden furniture, makes a great space for enjoying alfresco meals or drinks. Bikes can be stored securely by arrangement with the owners. There is ample parking close to the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Very nice accommodation in a quite rural setting. Certainly if you are a city dweller or a townie you would feel very much that you're in the wild.

Stayed for the week at Overshot , our friends had the cottage next door. Worked perfectly for our socially distanced staycation. Nice patio which we could easily get 4 chairs on and a handy gate between the two gardens. Very peaceful setting , lovely view of the lambs in the field. Cottage was great , everything you needed and spotlessly clean.

Well equipped modern conversion down the far end of a very narrow lane - perfect if you want peace and seclusion. Thanks to the thick walls and south-facing bi-fold doors, it was plenty warm enough inside, even with overnight ground frost in early November.

A lovely cottage and nice layout,. The location is very rural but if that is what you want then it is ideal. The whole outlook and cottage are very well presented for a nice relaxing holiday. To access outlying areas you would need a car but all of the popular destinations are within 25-40 mins reach .

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
