This 17th-century converted barn adjacent to the owner’s home lies in the quaint hamlet of Milborne Wick on the Somerset/Dorset border, 3 miles north of the historic town of Sherborne. It stands detached in grounds of approximately 1 acre and offers spacious accommodation, ideal for large family groups to unwind, relax and enjoy the wealth of countryside and many other attractions to be found in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. Lovely country walks, village pubs, golf, horse racing at Wincanton and fishing are all nearby, and within easy driving distance there is a diversity of family attractions to visit, such as Longleat House and Safari Park, magnificent steam railways, the fascinating array of vintage motor cars at the Haynes Motor Museum, and Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum with its aviation history, including Concorde. Spend days out exploring the history of Somerset in many historic houses such as Montacute, Barrington Court and Forde Abbey and Gardens, or take a scenic exhilarating walk to the top of the enchanting Glastonbury Tor. The Georgian City of Bath with its many splendid museums, Roman baths, abbey, shops and restaurants is well worth a visit, or in Dorset one can explore Cerne Abbas, with the renowned Cerne Giant, down to the market town of Dorchester, the bustling seaside town of Weymouth with its superb beach and port, and then on to the Chesil Beach and the famous stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coast. It is truly a great location to suit a variety of holiday needs for all. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

    The website doesn't do Higher Farm Barn justice. It is a lovely property that was ideal for our family get together/celebration - ages ranging from 19 months to 71years. 9 of us in total (3 under 9) and plenty of space for everyone. Our youngest member was delighted to find a table and chairs at her height for all the important activities she needed to do! The owners were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Am hoping that not too many people discover this property for fear of it being booked the next time we want to go.

    We have just had a family Christmas at the Barn. We all had a fantastic time and the Barn is perfect if you want to have the space for a family of 10 to spread out, relax and have time together. The Barn is extremely comfortable, and well equipped. Would thoroughly recommend.

    We have spend a great time with our family (parents in law with two 'children' and families in the age of 1 to 75) at Higher Farm Barn. Lovely and beautiful location with friendly landlords.

    Absolutely stunning house and gardens. So much space for us 6 adults and 3 very busy toddlers. Easy to get around and get to local beaches or national trust grounds. Even just walking down the lane, the kids got to see ducks, chickens and other livestock roaming.

    Large comfortable well kept house, good for 2 families. Peaceful location, many things within 30 min drive. Traditional furnishings and decor all in good order. Pretty garden though over looked by neighbouring owners. Layout and mix of double and twin beds suit 2 families with older children (age 8 upwards). Steps, stairs, balcony and garden not fully enclosed may not suit toddlers. Owners checked we were settled and offered help and contact numbers if any problems. Nice welcome box of snacks. We would recommend and we would stay here again.

    Good location for a quiet time. Pubs and shops are a drive away. Facilities were very good and there was a lot of space to spread out in.
