The Barn at Watton, near Bridport has been extensively refurbished and extended to create the ideal family home.

The carefully considered character features include exposed beams, bespoke oak windows, elm and sweet chestnut joinery, solid oak doors, hamstone flagstone flooring, a bespoke elm staircase and hamstone fireplaces throughout.

The bespoke kitchen is particularly beautiful with maple worktops, an oil-fired Aga, flagstone flooring and a walk-in pantry.
