Leat House, a high quality barn conversion, is set in stunning countryside only a short drive from the magnificent Jurassic coast that fringes the picturesque Dorset area. This is one of three holiday properties recently refurbished by the owners of this working dairy farm just a few miles from the village of Colyton near the Dorset/Devon border and only about 20 minutes drive from Lyme Regis. The property looks out over miles of rolling countryside and has been lovingly refurbished to provide spacious and stylish holiday accommodation in a truly idyllic rural setting. A king size bedroom with en-suite shower room and a second twin bedroom (this room can also be made up as a super king size) with an en suite bathroom - both enjoy beautiful, panoramic views across the valley. The open-plan living area includes French windows that lead onto a south-facing terrace with the same wonderful views. A large open garden area (enclosed by a fence to prevent children and dogs from wandering unsupervised) also includes access to a tarmac tennis court. Use of a games barn across the courtyard includes table tennis, table football and a full size snooker table. A cosy wood burner and environmentally-friendly under floor heating make this a great choice for out-of-season breaks too. This property has recently received a prestigious VisitEngland 4 Star Gold Award for quality of accommodation and customer service.

The farm is surrounded by lush countryside and overlooks a peaceful rural valley and there is access to a tennis court and a games barn (including table tennis and a full size snooker table) that is shared with the two other holiday properties on the farm site.  For those wanting to experience a working farm at first hand the owners are happy to arrange a visit to the milking parlour. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and the beautiful coast, famous for its fossil beaches is just 5 miles away. See properties APPLEL and WHEELH also in this location. These properties can be booked together to provide up to 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms for groups of up to 14. Property WHEELH provides dining space for a group of up to 14 to sit down together.
