Set behind the owner’s home, both the Hayloft (ref UK10201) and the Granary (ref UK10221) are two, converted semi-detached properties, located in the simply stunning, Dorset village of Milton Abbas. Mid-way between the Dorset county town of Dorchester and the market town of Blandford Forum. The picture-postcard village of Milton Abbas with its 36 almost identical thatched roofed cottages, an Almshouse, church and local pub, were constructed in a Georgian gothic-style in the 1780’s, after the owner of Milton Abbas said the old location of the village was ruining his view from the abbey, and therefore the local village was moved to its current location.Milton Abbas hosts an 18th-century historic country fair every 2 years, where they celebrate the rebuilding of the present village.
