A lovely Grade II listed farmhouse set in 17 acres of rolling countryside near the pretty town of Beaminster. Sleeps 13, with sitting room, dining room, kids playroom, Aga in the kitchen, chickens, a tree house and trampoline. 15 mins from the Jurassic coast and beaches, walking distance from the village and award winning restaurants.
The kitchen is large, with original flagstone floor, seats 8 easily with room for more tables, and has a 4 door Aga, and masses of cupboard space, this leads to a cosy kids playroom, stacked with toys, puzzles and DVDs. Hall is flagstoned and has a loo with washing and drying machines. The hall leads to the dining room. This is flagstoned with a wood burner, large fireplace, baby grand piano and dining table seats 12-14 people with room for further table. This follows onto another hall, entrance to the garden and patio area, another loo and the sitting room, which has Tv/Sky/Wifi large fireplace, woodburner and original features. There are 2 sets of stairs in the house to the first floor where there is a kids bathroom (smaller) with shower, bath and loo, a very big bathroom (bath, separate shower, and loo) 3 double rooms, one single room and one room with twin beds. Up some steep wooden steps is the attic area, where a large playroom with double futon leads into a pretty double bedroom. Wantsley is a comfortable lived-in family farmhouse, not a chic hotel or rent-only house. We live here most of the year, except for August, Christmas and occasionally Easter. We often have Ducks (wild and flighty) and mostly always have Chickens on the property, the presence of which is as much controlled by us as by how hungry the foxes are. The chickens a completely free-range so might pop up anywhere. Depending on mood and season they will provide eggs in exchange for remembering to feed them :).
