For those who truly want to get away and be able to step outside into beautiful countryside yet live in elegance within two hours of the centre of London. Giffords Barn is a recently converted, detached, stone built self catering property in the picturesque village of Blackford on the Dorset/Somerset border within very easy access of the A303.

This self catering property sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms.

Nearby is the historic town of Sherborne, famous for its abbey. The surrounding rolling countryside is adjacent to the historic site of Camelot - reputedly the fortress of King Arthur. The barn overlooks open countryside on one side and the small village church on another. A brook runs along the boundary of the secluded garden which has a choice of sitting/eating out areas and BBQ. The interior has been furnished to the highest standard and has been awarded a five star tourist board grading as well as Gold Award*. There is off road parking for two cars.
