    “Hired in conjunction with Churn Cottage for a weekend away with a group of friends.”

    This was our 7th year here. As always everything was perfect and Vicky the owner made us so welcome. Of course we'll be back next year.

The property

Manor Farm Barn is a charming conversion, which can be found nestled in the idyllic village of Dewlish.

Set within the Dorset AONB, this delightful accommodation gives you the opportunity to explore some fabulous walking country right from the doorstep.

Dating back to the 18th century, it is full of character, from the exposed brickwork and beamed ceilings to the flagstone floors and farmhouse-style furnishings for a cosy feel.

Bring your whole family and your friends to share a memorable occasion together in a beautiful area of the country.

With eight spacious bedrooms, each with a handy en-suite, you are spoilt for choice with sleeping arrangements, even hosting a ground floor bedroom, ideal for those slightly less able on their feet.

The spacious lounge offers a place to relax and unwind with your loved ones, on return from an adventure along the Jurassic Coast.

Get cosy by the fire with a mug of something hot and pick from your favourite shows on TV.

The designated chef will truly be in their element in the kitchen, with its superb range cooker taking centre stage among integrated wooden units and all the appliances you could possibly need.

Dine together in the large dining room and soak up your surroundings as you catch up on old times and discuss plans for the rest of your holiday.

You might want to step outside in the courtyard on a warm summer's day and enjoy a glass of chilled wine in a quiet corner or you can head over to the shared heated pool for a rejuvenating swim.

The games room provides an evening of fun with all the family, with its pool table, table tennis and table football to choose from.

Walk down to the village pub and enjoy a relaxed pub or some home-cooked food amidst a friendly atmosphere.

You are right on the doorstep of Thomas Hardy countryside here at Manor Farm Barn, with his cottage and monument within driving distance.

About the location


Dorchester 7 miles; Blandford Forum 7 miles.

The idyllic small Dorset village of Dewlish nestles in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, west of the Purbeck Hills, beside the chalk streamed Devil’s Brook, a tributary of the quaintly named River Piddle. Surrounded by chalk downland, rich in agriculture and beloved by Thomas Hardy, Dewlish offers visitors a tranquil rural Dorset village holiday base. There are numerous well-marked footpaths extending out across this unspoilt countryside, and after enjoying a scenic stroll you can reward yourself with refreshment at the friendly local pub. A short drive takes you to the county market town of Dorchester, where you are spoilt for choice when it comes to a bit of retail therapy offering an array of interesting outlets from small independent shops to the usual high street retailers, together with a wide selection of different types of eateries, catering for all budgets. Take in excursions to the Dorset Jurassic Coast, picturesque Milton Abbas, or Tolpuddle, the home of the trade union movement, Athelhampton House or Monkey World and the Bovington Tank Museum, all an easy drive.

Please note that the enclosed garden is not fenced off between Manor Farm Barn and Churn House, but they both have their own separate areas
