    We had a wonderful week at The Barn. The owner has thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It was quite chilly in Dorset last week and the cottage was really warm and cosy. There’s a great pub just round the corner, a petrol station and Spar just up the road and a well stocked farm shop in East Stour just over a mile away. Can’t wait to return.

    We found The Barn to be well appointed, comfortable, cosy and well equipped. There are lots of places of interest to visit within easy reach as well as many walks in the beautiful local scenery. We made good use of our National Trust membership as there are several houses nearby. We particularly enjoyed a walk round Giant Hill at Cerne Abbas. The local farm shop is well worth a visit too.

    The owner has thought of everything you could want in self-catering accommodation. We had a lovely, comfortable week here and will happily recommend it to others.

    Great proximity to local pub and farm shop

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are quite surprised at the low score as when we met you said you had had a great holiday. Perhaps it was because we arrived at 10.00 am and you were not packed, it does state departure is by 10.00am as we have 5 hours of work before the next guest, also the rather unpleasant smell that was in the lounge has now gone, so apologies to the previous guest.

    We had a fantastic holiday, the cottage was a perfect location. The pub which is just around the corner was ideal and the food was very good. The cottage was clean and tidy with milk, biscuits and fudge upon arrival. The garden was lovely and a real sun trap.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your Reevoo, much appreciated.

    Property was much bigger than I expected. The owners were lovely and left a few treats for the dog and I. Was centrally located which was ideal to visit lots of places and make the most of my holiday. Unfortunately had to cut short my holiday as bed was not as firm as I am use to and aggravated long term back problems. Was good value for money and I would certainly recommend. Had everything you would need for a holiday and Cotton loved the garden.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you, glad you enjoyed the barn, you did mention to me and my husband on arrival that you would only be staying for a few days, hence vacating on the Wednesday morning.

    A very well equipped cottage but would have expected up to date tv and could do with new mattresses

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We saw in the guest book you enjoyed the barn, dog treats and the welcome pack. The mattresses are 6 years old and the television is quite suitable for guests needs.
