Attractive barn conversion property, an ideal couple’s retreat located on the owner’s non-working farm in South Somerset, within easy reach of numerous beaches.

Located just a short distance from the Somerset/Dorset border, this property is within easy reach of some of the region’s best-loved attractions. The Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton is just a short drive away, whilst the Haynes Motor Museum is also nearby. The famous beaches of the Jurassic Coast lie just fifteen miles south of the property, including those at West Bay, Charmouth, and Lyme Regis. A visit to Axminster is a must for those who love exploring local towns, especially those with an interest in food, who will not want to miss a visit to the River Cottage Deli.

On entering this single-storey property, guests will be able to make themselves immediately at home in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is dominated by the large bi-fold doors that flood the room with light. The kitchen area, to the rear of the space, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, and fridge, and overlooks the two-seater dining table. In the lounge area a comfortable sofa allows guests to relax in front of the TV/DVD or maybe just open up the doors and enjoy the fresh air and peaceful surroundings. Located just off the living area, there is one bedroom: a king-size room which benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC. Outside, there is a patio garden to the front of the property, which, with its BBQ and garden furniture, makes a great space for enjoying alfresco meals or drinks. There is ample close to the property.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

  • 1 king-size bedroom
  • En-suite shower room with shower and WC

A well thought out property in a lovely, peaceful setting. The owners provided us with a generous welcome package too. Couldn't fault the place at all.

As far as we were concerned,everything was there right down to kitchen utensils.It was spotlessly clean and the "starter kit" of a bottle of wine,tea,coffee,butter etc was a simple but a kind welcoming gesture,and the fresh roses on the table.The owners also went out of their way on our arrival to make sure we were fully catered for. When can we goRead more again????? Hide

Overshot is an extremely well maintained, clean and also very well equipped property with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. The welcome hamper is a lovely touch especially the bubbly, with more items included than we have had in other self-catering cottages. The cottage is in a lovely peaceful setting overlooking an open field and idRead moreeal for visiting many NT houses and gardens and the coast around Lyme Regis and along to the West Bay area. Hide

Lovely cottage and the owner was very welcoming there was even essential foods supplied. Including freshly laid eggs, milk, bread and even dog biscuits. The only disadvantage is the cottage is next to a railway line but that did not spoil my stay as I was out exploring most of the time.
