Mr R Carl
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Barn. It was well equipped, comfortable and in a great location to visit the various attractions of Dorset. Would recommend and will definitely look to return in the future as there's is still more to explore. Stayed August 2017.

Mrs R Shephard
Ideal cottage. One of my favourites so far.Great location. Exceptionally clean, well equipped, and comfortable. All the comforts of home. Watching the hens made my day. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Off-road parking is a big plus for me. Also a secure area for the dog. All in all superb. Thank you. Stayed June 2017

Mrs S Rogers

Ms J Halsall
What a fantastic little place, great price for half term lovely village close to beaches. Stayed May 2017

Mrs S Long
Excellent holiday accommodation, very comfortable, in a lovely village, boasting a fine pub, and within easy access to the coast, Bridport, Weymouth and other lovely towns such as Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth etc. Fantastic walks in and around the area. Our hosts, Steve and Sue, were totally lovely, very friendly and nearby but at the same time not "intrusive" in any way. All in all a fabulous week, and we definitely hope to rejoin them once again in the not too distant future. VERY highly recommended. The customer service from dream Holidays was also very good. Stayed May 2017

Mr S Blay
The Barn was a perfect location for our holiday. Mr & Mrs Main were perfect hosts, they have worked hard at this property to get it to a superb standard.It is so wonderful to wake up to the sound of the morning chorus with birds twittering and the sound of the chickens on the adjacent garden. The Barn is a property we would consider to stay at in the future. Stayed June 2016

Mrs H Prescott
Booking was quick & easy, I had one query about availability as I have 2 Large greyhounds which was answered quickly. The Barn is lovely, down a country lane- but with easy access by car to Bridport & all Jurassic coast, good walks locally- we didn't explore too far on foot due to very elderly hound. The Barn is hidden to the side of the Sue & Steve's bungalow. It was spotlessly clean, with with views over the Veg garden with Bantam Hens & tiny chicks from kitchen & sitting room. Views over open countryside from upstairs. TV/DVD & Radio plus WiFi should weather turn inclement, plus there is heating plus fire, but we didn't need either, Lovely safe enclosed patio with great table & chairs for outdoor dining & afternoon tea & cake after lovely walks. My Husband & I with the 2 hounds stayed for 2 weeks, would highly recommend Sue & Steve were about if needed but not at all intrusive. We will be booking again when we next holiday in Dorset. Stayed May 2016

Mr G Bessant
Owners were great friendly very helpful and made you welcome, The Barn was in good condition with everything you could want we will be back. Stayed April 2016
