To the right of the hall, you have the sitting room with open fireplace, stone surround, woodburning stove and dual aspect windows with views over the rear and rose gardens. The two further reception rooms have in the past been used as a study andplayroom/games room but are very flexible in their use. The latter is dual aspect with French doors leading to the rose garden and a large window overlooking the drive. Upstairs there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master bedroom has built in wardrobes and wonderful views over the garden and the Cerne Valley beyond. As well as a bath, bidet, low level WC and wash hand basin, the large ensuite master bathroom has plenty of storage, with an airing cupboard, a wall of storage cupboards under the basin and more in the eaves, and two velux windows. Along the landing are four further bedrooms; each share a bathroom between two bedrooms. Field Farm Barn is approached by its own drive which leads to an extensive gravelled area providing parking for numerous cars and leading to the integral garage with power and light and useful boarded loft area. The front garden has mature shrubs and is bordered by an established hedge. The garden to the rear is an outstanding feature of the property with an extensive lawn leading down to the free flowing River Cerne. Immediately to the rear of the property is a terrace and there are established climbers, including a wisteria, on the rear elevation. To the side of the property there is a small rose garden sheltered and secluded by mature evergreen and laurel hedging. To the bottom of the garden is a large pond, kitchen garden with greenhouse and small orchard.
