THE PROPERTY

Berehayes Holiday Cottages are in Whitchurch Canonicorum, a rural farming village close to the Jurassic Coast and has been run as a very successful holiday let business since 1985. The cottages are now all being sold off separately. This is a rare opportunity to own one as your own second home/holiday let (there is no restriction on the length of stay but it cannot be owned as your main/sole residence).

The eight barn conversions are set around an enclosed courtyard which was once a farmyard. Having been designed as holiday accommodation with open plan living areas, the decor of the cottages with country style handmade wooden kitchens, tie in with this part of the West Country. All are well maintained and double glazed throughout. www.berehayes.co.uk.

Barley Store is a charming, thatched, two-storey converted stone barn with a well equipped kitchen. It has a beamed living area and a dining area. There is a bedroom with double bed and en-suite toilet downstairs with ample storage. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and shower over.

OUTSIDE

Designated car park space and shared visitor spaces.

There is a delightful open plan inner courtyard for the barn conversions, each cottage will have its own area with table and chairs. Barley Store will also have the additional benefit of its own open plan rear garden 20 X16 (6m x 5m), and a door can be installed to access it (planning permission has been granted). The outside table and chairs can be moved from the courtyard to the garden (which can be fenced) after completion.
