    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. The beds at the barn were purchased from a store that sells beds to hotels etc however it's impossible to cater for every guests back requirements. Thank you for your guest book feedback that you will be back again and recommend the barn.

    Perfect for us - the enclosed garden was ideal for our dog and the Ship pub served superb food, was dog friendly & literally at the end of the road.

    We have stayed at a few cottages and this has been the best. All the little extras from torches is you go out at night to umbrellas and wet or dirty boot tray by door makes this a well thought out cottages. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and located just off the main room so whoever is cooking can still communicate with others . The garden is lovely all enclosed with no one overlooking ideal if you have a dog,with both a back door and a patio door off the main room great if your dog likes to continually go in and out. Underfloor heating that could be adjusted to each room , quiet location extremely well thought out cottage made this an ideal holiday . Thank you Sarah you've got it nailed.

    Very nice cottage, on a quite residential cul de sac. Well maintained, beautiful garden. Great central location to explore Dorset, Somerset and surrounding areas. Owners very nice and helpful.

    Traffic noise from the A30 close by a nuisance. Underfloor heating not adjustable so we were either too hot or too cold! Property very clean and well equipped though. Proprietors easily contactable and helpful.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. Upon departure we found the heating had been turned down to 10 degrees therefore this would have caused it to feel cold.
