The Courtyard - Holt - A unique and impressive 4 bedroom barn conversion situated in the heart of Holt village, 4 miles to the north of Wimborne town centre.

The Courtyard is tucked well away from the village road and traffic noise, in the very heart of this popular rural community. The property represents an opportunity to buy a deceptively spacious country home in a quiet location, accessible off a private road that leads to a large gravelled courtyard.

Formerly owned by a local farm, the barns were also used as a thriving craft centre and offices in the 1970s. Skilfully converted and restored in the late 1980s, The Courtyard comprises 4 attached barns and 1 detached thatched cottage. The properties are all very different and offer much character and charm.


The property has solid brick elevations under a high small plain tiled roof and is connected to mains drainage, electricity and water. There is no gas supply. The barn has an oil fired heating system (via a combination boiler) and there are timber double glazed casement windows and doors throughout.

4 The Courtyard offers spacious accommodation extending in total to about 2100 square feet, and has many interesting features. In particular, there is a superb sitting and dining room that extends to over 35'.

The sitting room has a large brick fireplace with a Gothic arch, a raised stone hearth and an inset wood burning stove. There is an exposed brick pier and walling, and 2 pairs of timber double glazed casement doors lead to the courtyard and garden.

The kitchen has an excellent range of granite work surfaces, base cupboards, wall cabinets, a plate rack and a butler’s sink. There is Travertine flooring and a range of quality built-in appliances including a single oven, a microwave, a touch-control ceramic hob and an extractor. There is space for a dishwasher and a washing machine.

On the ground floor, there is a guest bedroom with exposed A-frame timbers and a high gabled brick wall with inlaid timbers. There is also an en suite bathroom.

To the first floor, there are 3 further bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is a most impressive room with a high gabled ceiling, exposed A-frame timbers and an excellent range of fitted cupboards and wardrobes. A Velux rooflight provides a superb view over the surrounding farmland.

Outside, there is an integral single garage and parking for 2 vehicles. To the front of the house, there is a block paved terrace and established shrubs. A brick outbuilding houses the oil tank and bin store.

The small rear garden area is enclosed by established timber and wire fencing and hedgerows and has a mature beech tree, fuchsias and other shrubs.
