Large country house sleeping 17 with a hot tub and bar for family holidays and special occasions near the coast and Wimborne
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. The Farmhouse on the River, Wimborne, Dorset, sleeps 7 - 17 in 7 bedrooms.
The farmhouse can sleep 26. It has been stylishly renovated in recent years, so has all the charm of a period property combined with the most up to date technology throughout the house and garden. A Grade II listed farmhouse mostly built in 1710 with additions in the 19th century, the farmhouse is located on the River Stour with views of the beautiful Dorset countryside. It is very private - but it is not remote and isolated - having the pub 2 minutes walk from the house. There are wonderful walks and mountain biking opportunities close by. Beaches and the New Forest are a short drive.
The main house is beautifully designed with mainly stone or wood floors with underfloor heating throughout, and a fireplace or log burner in 3 rooms. On the 2 top floors there are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (3 en suite). On the ground floor there is a large living room with open fire, huge sofa and pull down cinema screen which turns the living room into a fantastic cinema room. There are blankets, games and jigsaws available. The decadent dining room has a large table with seating for 14/16 (table extensions available for 20). The modern kitchen is very well equipped with fridge, electric AGA, fan assisted oven, steam oven, microwave, Nespresso coffee maker, toaster, Quooker hot tap and 2 dishwashers. It has all the utensils you could possibly wish for and crockery and cutlery for over 30 people. The additional lounge can be used as a further bedroom.
The Stable block has 2 bedrooms and a living room that can be converted into a further bedroom. There is a spacious shared bathroom.
The large garden is 1.2 acres. Directly outside the back of the house there is a very comfortable sofa seating area and also a dining table. The Linn stereo system extends into this area where there is a gas BBQ. In the garden there is a huge climbing frame and tent, swing and trampoline. There is an outside bar and games area with table tennis, table football and darts. The garden slopes down to the River Stour where fishing is permitted. Another fantastic feature is the "spa area" with William Holland bath (with bubbles), outside shower and steam room.
It is the perfect getaway property!
