The Donkey Shed is set in the beautiful Dorset countryside in a village called Alweston, just outside Sherborne, and new to our portfolio. This stunning converted barn is in a superb location, access to lovely local walks and simply breathtaking views! The Donkey Shed has recently undergone a major refurbishment into an amazing spacious holiday home that makes the most of its views towards the rolling hills in the distance and all carried out to a very high standard. The property is  spacious with light and airy rooms throughout and all very well appointed. The open plan living space has incredible bi-fold doors that open up onto the private patio area, garden and countryside beyond. The kitchen is very well equipped with low level fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher all integrated into very high quality kitchen units. Great care has been taken to make the ground floor accessible for those with limited mobility, there are no steps and all of the ground floor has been fitted with extr wide doors throughout to allow wheelchair access.  Downstairs there is a double bedroom and bathroom which has an extra large walk in shower.  Upstairs are two further bedrooms, a double and a twin, as well as a second bathroom. Outside, there is a private garden area, with patio, table and chairs - and those amazing views.
