We loved the spacious interior and exterior, it made it feel like a real home. The owner welcomed us personally on the day we arrived, that made us feel very comfortable. Everyone, especially our kids, loved every moment of our stay. We will surely recommend to our friends and probably come back again in the near future.
Mr Thomas

The Barn was a lovely place to stay, it was quiet and relaxing and close to our family in Shaftesbury. I would like to go back and stay there again and have already mentioned it to several of my friends.
Mrs Giddings

The spacious accommodation was perfect for 5 adults and a baby, it was nice having en-suite with all bedrooms. A pleasant peaceful area with outside sitting space.
Mr Ashmore

The Barn conversion is brilliant, providing perfect accommodation for six people. The location provides a perfect base for excursions in all directions.
