Champernhayes Barn holiday home details

Overlooking the valley and views to the sea at Charmouth, The Barn is the flag ship of Champernhayes' six charming 15th Century restored farm buildings. This impressive detached stone property has been restored to original thatch and overlooks a beautiful valley and views of the Charmouth sea. It is situated on the site of a medieval monastery. The property has benefited from recent refurbishment and now combines a modern taste in furnishings and open plan, airy living, whilst remaining warm and cosy. Sleeping ten to twelve guests, The Barn is perfect for large groups and special celebrations.

One of six properties on the estate, we also offer Champernhayes Farmhouse sleeping up to eight guests.
