About & Contact

Magnificent position on the edge of Dorset AONB/NL

This half of the barn sleeps six. It has south facing views over the Stour Valley, and looks west down a wild flower meadow towards a pond and woodland. The outside dining table is perfectly placed to enjoy both views.

During the summer the seating area in the garden is perfect for sunny breakfasts or an al fresco supper. The garden is safe for dogs and children alike. We provide a brick built barbecue.

The open plan kitchen, living and dining area is a delightful communal space with a woodburner - listen to music, watch tv, or choose from one of our board games.

The master bedroom looks down the hill towards the valley, with an ensuite shower and 20” flat screen TV. The second bedroom has a ‘zip and link’ bed, which can be arranged as twin beds or a super king size double. The third bedroom has twin beds.

Just outside Child Okeford in North Dorset, the farm is in a truly lovely position sitting under Hambledon Hill (one of two iron age hill forts next to us) looking down onto the River Stour. The walking is wonderful, and the views are magical. There is plenty to do for all interests - we are within reach of the coast and cities like Salisbury and Bath, and art galleries, gardens and plenty of National Trust properties.



Restaurants and pubs have changed radically over the years and there is a wonderful village on the doorstep with all sorts of pubs and shops and pop-up food providers. Further afield there are destination restaurants and pubs.



All towels and bedding are provided. Plus a welcome pack of fresh bread, coffee, tea, butter and eggs.

Meet the owner

Lucinda Sunnucks

We moved to Chisel Farm House - just below the farm buildings - in 2002. They had been the base for a large dairy and remain part of a working farm, with cattle and sheep grazing in the surrounding fields. For the first ten years we let the barns and fields to the local pony club for their summer camp, but in 2013 we converted one building and Chisel Barn was born. Roll on ten years, we have moved out of the farm house and built ourselves a new house on the site of the remaining buildings. I was brought up in Somerset and we moved to Dorset in 1996, We adore this area, the views are fantastic in every direction. We brought up our three children and spent long holidays riding and enjoying all that is around us. We want to share our huge love of this wonderful, tranquil spot. The three properties are simple and understated, but sympathetically decorated with all you could want in a holiday home. Access is easy and the flexibility of the different sized properties mean that different family and extended family holidays can be catered for. Living here all year round makes us experts on so much that is going on in Dorset, so do ask if need more information.
