The property

… a mile from Aveton Gifford, 300 yards down a tree-lined track off a lane, three very special places to stay within handsome former farm buildings: an airy converted barn (L248), a barn converted into a gallery (L191) overlooking meadows and a remarkable Grade II listed former music room (L249). A large, pretty, enclosed suntrap courtyard is shared with the friendly owners. Just outside the courtyard, a lawned walled garden (also enclosed) with camellias, fig and walnut trees, leading to another garden with pond (unfenced) and 6 grassy acres with big wildlife pond (fenced), vast lawn for picnics and croquet, picnic table, benches (terrific long views) and big trees to sit under, inviting you to rest, read or just enjoy the silence and let your mind wander (children should be supervised). Heating by biomass boiler using wood from local, sustainable woodland. Spring water. Arrival after 4pm. A peaceful, curative oasis, good for ‘taking it easy’.

... The Gallery is an ‘upside down’ cottage, exceptionally well converted by an award-winning architect, with private enclosed garden (table/chairs) at the back, opening to meadow, with the shared grounds and fields beyond for enjoying birdsong and stars. Two steps up to front door. Inside, designed for simplicity and tranquillity, focusing on long, rural views and original paintings. On the first floor (top stairgate), wonderful living room with the views, woodburner, TV/DVD and iPod dock. Roomy kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven/induction hob); big glazed doors to steps down to garden. On the ground floor, two bedrooms looking to the courtyard – a double (6' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite), and a double (5' bed or 2'6" twin) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Bright and airy in the summer or cosy as a winter retreat, with wonderful walks from the door and beaches within easy reach.

The Owners and their children were very welcoming. The accommodation was of a very good standard, clean and very well equipped. We only wish Jo and Nick could have had control of the weather for the first half of the week. But at the end when it improved it was the icing on the cake. Thank you all for a very enjoyable holiday. Helen and Keith Bagshaw
