Upton Grange Holiday Cottages
Upton Grange Holiday Cottages, Upton Farm, Upton, Ringstead, Nr Dorchester, Dorset, DT2 8NE
From it’s location of privilege, cosseted in the centre of the tiny unspoilt hamlet of Upton, where the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline rejoices in the simplicity of nearby Ringstead Bay, the archetypal historical Tithe Barn of Upton Farm stands majestic, as it has done, in part, since 1579. This idyllic construction, and it’s attendant courtyard, however, are now enjoying a renaissance in their present day role – that of providing self catering holiday accommodation, in the traditional ‘country-house’ style, to the discerning visitor.
Having been sympathetically converted into a small number of charismatic holiday cottages, furnished and equipped to the most exacting standards and incorporating many vintage pieces, antiques and luxury items, these unique properties are guaranteed to incite feelings of nostalgia in all but the most barren on souls.
The accepted essentials of modern life juxtapose with romantic historical artefacts and furnishings from a bygone age. Some bedrooms feature four poster beds,.. log fires grace the lounges of larger homes, deep soft sofas wait to embrace you after your evening meal – taken at your traditional polished wood dining table, or perhaps, al-fresco in the acres of formal gardens that surround the courtyard. With a variety of sizes to accommodate 2,3,4 or 6 persons you have simply to make your choice.
