    Property is lovely. The only slightly negative comment is that the bed was not as comfortable as expected in a Gold rated home. Owner is charming and kindly left a few goodies for us which was appreciated. It was most unfortunate that builders were building an extension next door which was dirty and noisy, no fault of the owners

    trouble with tv reception all week

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. The television signal was low, this guest informed us on the Wednesday evening that it was playing up, and that it had been since Sunday evening. Had we known sooner, we would have sorted out the issue immediately. As it was, I rang the aerial company and they came out on the Thursday morning, and put a new booster in the roof and it is now working as it should.

    Good property but it was in amongst other 'private' properties. The only negative was that there could have been more cutlery instead of the regulatory 'four of each'. It did often mean having to do some washing-up amid having an evening meal etc.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. There are two sets of 4 place setting cutlery, one in the kitchen, and one set in the dining room sideboard, more than enough for 2 - 4 persons.

    Lovely clean well equipped cottage and beautifully furnished. Welcome pack and Christmas gift appreciated. Lounge got too hot but owners are aware and investigating, but at this time of the year it's better to be too hot than cold.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you had a good holiday at The Barn and enjoyed what we have to offer in Dorset .The underfloor heating does take a little while to understand! It is set at 21 degrees as the heat holds in the rooms, an even temperature… not the same as gas fired central heating. The engineer and electrician have both been and checked the heating system and found that it is operating as it should.

    spacious and comfortable bungalow, good garden for our dog, did expect to be on a farm not a small housing estate, but overall a lovely place to stay.

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. The barn is on a private estate and it's a converted barn along with 4 other conversions and cottages, with the farm behind the barns. We have had customers who enjoyed the barn so much they have returned several times.
