    Storm Dennis raged but we were very cosy in this lovely cottage. The locals are very welcoming, we felt very relaxed. Thank you Sarah for making our stay great.

    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.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you, we are pleased you enjoyed the barn and Dorset, and had a good break.

    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.
