With rolling views, a contemporary design and plenty of space for the whole family to relax and reconnect, The Queens Arms’ converted Piggery Barns provide a spectacular spot for this year’s summer staycation. As the popularity of holidaying at home continues to rise, the two adjoining Piggery Barns are designed to accommodate everyone from parents seeking a peaceful escape to the little ones and muddy paws that are sure to keep them on their toes.
A world away from the tiring journeys, crowded flights and rising prices of travelling abroad during the summer holidays, a restful retreat to the country offers a chance to embrace British summertime at its best.
Nestled on Dorset’s border with Somerset, with The Queens Arms itself falling just the other side, the Piggery Barns are ideally located for groups looking to explore the best of the south west, with World Heritage Sites, the city of Bath and the Jurassic Coast, both within an hour’s drive away. For those quieter days, the historic town of Sherborne is on the doorstep, while the owners have also mapped out four rural walking routes for those wishing to immerse themselves in the surrounding countryside.
Sleeping a maximum of eight people, each barn has three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and is well equipped for those wishing to stay tucked away in this holiday hideaway, with a utility room, spacious kitchen and open plan living area to bring the family together. The Queens Arms is also just a few fields away when the time comes to venture out to feed the family, with a menu that measures itself in metres not miles and picnic hampers available directly from the pub’s kitchen.
