Corner Barn

Charlton Down, Dorset


Beautiful Eco Friendly Dorset Cottage

The Location

Surrounded by fields in the small village of Charlton Down, Corner Barn also just a stone’s throw from Dorchester with everything this amazing area has on offer within easy reach. The stunning coastal beaches of Studland and West Bay are a short drive, perfect for walks along the Jurassic coast, or have a go at some kite surfing in Portland; Anabel will give you some tips! Take in the pretty village of Puddletown or visit Thomas Hardy’s cottage where he drew inspiration from this area to write some of his most famous works. You will certainly feel far from the madding crowd here.
