Gould's Farmhouse

About Gould's Farmhouse, Blandford

Sleeps 8. 4 bedroom farmhouse with large enclosed garden in the heart of rural Dorset. 
Gould's Farmhouse is a beautiful period farmhouse dating back to 1600s with some original features. It has recently been completely renovated and is furnished as a second home with antiques but retaining the comforts of modern living .
 It has a large sitting room with open fire and separate dining room, with wood burner, as well as a small office offering wireless internet access. There is a lovely south facing conservatory.  
The kitchen has an Aga as well as an electric oven and hob.
 Upstairs 1 bathroom and 2 shower rooms serve the 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms.Two of the large bedrooms are double aspect and all rooms look over the garden and/or Dorset countryside.
 The house is ideal for those with limited mobility, as it has a proper lift to the upstairs area, (by prior arrangement only).
 There is a large mature garden with plenty of room for the children to play. Also sun loungers and BBQ and picnic table.   The house is within easy walking distance of the post office and village stores, providing basic provisions, and a pub. A good children's playground can be found 100 yards up the road.  The house with its space makes it ideal for several generations to holiday together – plenty of room for the children to play, but a room for the older generation to have a little bit of peace!
The pretty village location offers easy access to the world famous Jurassic Coast and is in the centre of Thomas Hardye country - the fictional town of Casterbridge (Dorchester) being 8 miles distant. The stunning coastline at Lulworth Cover and Durdle Door is just 14 miles away. About a 30 minute drive away is Weymouth Bay which boasts long and sandy beaches with traditional beach entertainments such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy. Within 20 minutes you can visit the acclaimed Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum. For the younger visitors Farmer Palmers is less than 30 minutes away.  Venturing a little further afield the New Forest can be reached within under an hour and the historic small city of Salisbury is about 35 minutes away.
