  • Anna was so lovely and such a great host! The place was even better than it looks (and it looks amazing) and there were lots of lovely little touches. We had a great stay and would definitely come back again.

  • Beautiful barn conversion, tranquil location, well equipped and super comfortable beds and sofa. Friendly hostess.

    Anna2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend staying here. Host is welcoming and very responsive with communication. The photos do not do the accommodation justice as it is larger than it looks. Spacious open plan area, spotlessly clean, great shower and comfortable for all the family. We all slept very well and hope to return soon. Fantastic views and lovely area. Definitely a great place to stay.

  • This is a lovely place to stay and Maryanne is the perfect host. There was fresh flowers, milk and home made cakes to greet us and Maryanne even gave us extra towels for the muddy paws on our 4 legged friends. The kitchen in this property is also brilliantly equipped! So nice to be able to prepare real food as all the utensils are available! I’d definitely go back here again!

    Ridge Farm Annexe is the perfect place for a peaceful, romantic holiday or short break in a 'home away from home'. We provide comfortable, beautifully furnished accommodation for two people (perhaps accompanied by a baby or small child) in an idyllic setting in North Dorset, UK, within easy reach of the Jurassic Coast and many other places of interest in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.
    Ridge Farm Annexe is often described by our guests as being 'like a home'. And that's exactly what it was for 25 years when Madeline's mother lived here. The Annexe was completely refurbished during 2014, with brand new bathroom fittings, new carpets and a redesigned kitchen. The accommodation consists of a sitting room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and hall. The sitting room is equipped with a comfortable sofa and armchairs, and there is access to the patio outside through sliding French doors. A TV (with built-in DVD player) is provided, as is wireless high-speed fibre broadband (45-50 mbps), and there is also a selection of games and jigsaw puzzles -- and two bookcases full of books in the hall. The bedroom is furnished with two comfortable 3' divans with pocket-sprung mattresses and duvets, 2 chairs, 2 bedside cabinets, each with a bedside light, a small chest of drawers, and a built in wardrobe with shelving. A cot for a baby or a camp bed for a child can be added if required. The recently completely refurbished bathroom is equipped with a corner bath, walk-in shower, basin and toilet. There is a mirrored cabinet over the basin and a shaver point suitable for both 240v and 115v appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with a ceramic-topped, two-oven electric cooker, a microwave cooker, a fridge with a small freezer compartment and a washing machine (3kg wash). In the winter there is also a condenser tumble drier in the porch. Crockery and cutlery are supplied, together with cooking utensils and all other normal kitchen equipment. For dining there is a table and chairs. Towels and linen are provided. Meals are not provided, but a supply of basic provisions, including bread, butter, milk, coffee, tea, sugar, flour, salt and pepper, will await you on your arrival. If you would like us to, we can also supply additional provisions at cost (payment on arrival). Please order these at least 48 hours beforehand.
    We are well placed for exploring Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset. Nearby are the old market towns of Sturminster Newton and and Sherborne (formerly the capital of Wessex), with its abbey and two castles. Places well worth visiting include Athelhampton House near Dorchester, Stourhead Gardens, Longleat House and Safari Park, Montacute House, and the picturesque towns of Wells, Glastonbury and Bath, not forgetting, of course, West Bay near Bridport, home of the TV program Broadchurch. We are close to a number of SSSIs, and our garden is visited by a variety of wildlife. Alner's Gorse, a local butterfly sanctuary is a short walk down a green lane. We also maintain a small flock of sheep and in the spring there may be lambs in our paddocks.
  • Staying at Ridge Farm Annexe was a delightful - after staying in apartments or one-room accommodation it felt very luxurious to stretch out over multiple rooms! Wonderfully clean, a comfortable sitting room to relax in, charming and communicative hosts - would definitely recommend, and stay there again if we get the chance.

    Claire2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for being a greats host, would highly recommendand stay again. We were there during storm dennis so lots of floods about and we ended up staying extra night. Mark and Madeline were excellent at making sure we were ok and had everything we needed. Very dog friendly super area for visiting Dorset. Would stay again 😀

    Melanie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A great location for exploring Dorset towns - Sturminster Newton, Sherborne and National Trust houses. Farm annex spotlessly clean and everything you could need for a relaxing break. Right in the countryside for great dog walks - highly recommend.

  • Madeline & Marks annex was a great find. Situated in a lovely area & perfect for exploring Dorset. Very nice couple who looked after us well even providing us with home grown produce.

    Joanna2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at the Ridge Farm Annex. The place was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything we could possibly need. It is surrounded by beautiful farm land and greenery. We went on lovely country walks nearby. Madeline and Mark made us feel very welcome and offered lots of useful information. They were very patient with the additional noise that our 3 month old created and provided a cot, in which she slept very comfortably. We had a great stay and will be coming again when in the area.

    Anisa2019-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely Christmas stay at Madeline's and Mark's-it was extremely comfortable and pretty and they were excellent hosts.

    Get away from it all to your own little retreat hut, tucked away in a small orchard on our 30 acre organic farm with glorious views of the Dorset Downs. This calm and beautiful space is ideally situated in the heart of Hardy country within easy reach of Sherborne, Shaftesbury and Dorchester. We welcome both couples or someone travelling alone.
    Our accommodation offers the perfect combination of retreat house and glamping getaway! Inside there is a comfortable double sofa bed, made for your arrival with organic cotton bedding, which during the day can be converted back to a squishy sofa. There is a kettle, cups, coffee and tea for your morning cuppa and tucked into the outside bench, a little fridge for milk. There are bookshelves and drawers for you to store a few bits and pieces and we provide games and cards to help you while away the hours. Outside there is a veranda with a two ring gas stove, cutlery, crockery, pans and some culinary basics for al fresco cooking. In front of the hut is your own fire pit with a grill so you can BBQ over the open fire or sit around the fire and gaze at the stars. We provide milk, bread, butter, eggs & local jam or marmalade for your arrival so you don't need to worry about your first day's breakfast. Please note there is no internet access in the Retreat Hut so this is really is a chance to get away from it all! Just a few yards through the orchard are our two shower rooms, with lots of piping hot water (all from solar power) as well as washing up sinks all of which are shared with our small, quiet campsite which is open during the summer holidays. We provide organic cotton shower towels.
    This is a great area for walking and there is fantastic wild swimming in the nearby River Stour.

  • Katie was a brilliant host, she looked after us very well. We had a really lovely time in the warm cosy annexe, even through storm Dennis! It was spotless, and a really great size. We went to the nearby Cerne Abbas brewery for some delicious beers, and then up to see the Cerne Giant! We loved the beautiful pub Brace of Pheasants in nearby village Plush too! Thanks so much Katie!!

    Tessa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

We had everything we needed to get by comfortably including being able to cook etc, with the bonus of the views from the balcony. Katie is a great host - quick to respond, welcoming and warm. We were very happy with our stay.

  • Lovely weekend stay! Such a beautiful view to wake up to in the morning and sit on the balcony with a cuppa.

    Natalie2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was an idyllic place to stay! Exactly what we needed for some well needed peace and quiet. Katie and her family were the perfect hosts. The annex was private, clean and extremely comfortable. Had everything we needed. Set in beautiful gardens and over looking fields. There were even deer! The village was lovely as were the surrounding ones. Loads to do and explore. We would definitely love to go back again.

    Set in the heart of the Dorset, the accommodation is perfectly situated close to the market towns of Sherborne, Dorchester, Sturminster Newton and Blandford Forum. With far reaching picturesque countryside views, it is also no more than a half an hour drive from the Jurassic Coast where you will find many stunning beaches set along the South West Coast Path. Dorset has a well-deserved reputation for award-winning pubs and seafood restaurants .
    The accommodation at Locketts Farm is self-contained and is accessed up a couple of steps, so sadly isn't suitable for wheelchair users. There is a good size bedroom with a comfortable double bed and an adjoining shower room with loo. The main living area is open-plan with a well equipped kitchen which includes a fridge-freezer, oven and microwave and tea and coffee making facilities. There is both an area for dining and for relaxing in front of the television. There is also a DVD player and a choice of DVD's. Provisions for breakfast will be provided with a choice of continental or cooked being offered. In addition, there is a well equipped utility room with a washing machine and sink. We are more than happy to accommodate one dog by prior agreement at an additional charge of £5 per night, payable on arrival. However a deposit will be required, payable via BACS 24 hours prior to arrival. The monies will be returned via BACS within 24 hours after check out. If required the relevant details will be sent following confirmation of booking. For those who have horses we are also happy to accommodate up to two and for this there is an additional charge of £25 per night, again payable on arrival. Straw and Haylage are provided but not hard feed. Please note we are not a riding school and don't offer riding on our own horses.
  • Stylish apartment in idyllic rural setting, very professional host, lovely personal touches. A great escape!

    Rosie2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quiet place to stay, but not far from all the great places to visit in Dorset.

    Marion2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a remote getaway and you don't mind horses, dogs and chickens then this is definitely the place.

    Deborah2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay. Extremely quiet despite being on a farm! Lovely walks in the local area and not too far of a drive to the coast. Welcome pack was a lovely touch

    Scott2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Lockett's Farm in beautiful Dorset countryside. It was nice to wake up and see the horses just outside the window. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. Communication was great and we appreciated the use of the travel cot - our 9 month old slept like a dream!

    Amy2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little flat with the added touch of a bottle of wine on arrival, which was hugely appreciated. Extremely clean, bright and welcoming place with the added charm of chickens, horses & dogs running around. We couldn’t have chosen a better location and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Huge props to Lucy & Mike for their beautiful home and letting us stay.

    Maddi2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Just returned from a fantastic three days at Lucy and Mike’s stylish apartment, in a stunning setting . We loved being surrounded by their horses and dogs. So peaceful, with lots of lovely little touches, such as complimentary wine, fresh flowers and fresh eggs and bacon. Bed so comfortable and long walks behind the farm! We’ll be back!

    Set in the heart of the Blackmore Vale, the village of Pulham is perfectly situated close to the market towns of Sherborne, Dorchester and Bridport. With far reaching picturesque countryside views, it is also no more than a half an hour drive from the Jurassic Coast where you will find many stunning beaches set along the South West Coast Path. Dorset has a well-deserved reputation for eateries, from award-winning pubs and seafood restaurants to tearooms from a by-gone era.
    The annexe is the guest accommodation at The Old School House and is set aside from the house, above the garage. It is accessed through the garden and up some stairs, which, regrettably is not suitable for wheelchair users. The annexe itself, sleeps 2 people in a king size bed and has a shower room with toilet and a small kitchen with sink, fridge and seating area. There is a television in the bedroom. Cooking facilities comprise a microwave/oven combi and there is a supply of tea and coffee in the kitchen. A choice of cooked or continental breakfast is available in the main house. Dogs can be accommodated by prior agreement at an additional charge of £5 per night, payable on arrival.
  • I loved the peacefulness of the self contained accommodation, very clean and homely. Such a beautiful place 💕

    Helena2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Back for a second time which says it all - great place to stay. Thank you Chris and Jenna

    Rose2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place for a relaxing get away. The annexe was spotless and had everything we needed for a short break, plus personal touches throughout which were lovely. There is lots to explore locally and some great pubs. Chris and Jenna are clearly such thoughtful people and wonderful hosts, and Jennas cooked breakfasts was simply delicious. We can't wait to return for longer next year!

    Nicole2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a great little find! The annex is perfect for a couple of nights away and set in a beautiful area. Particular highlight was the cooked breakfast and cuddles from the various dogs there. Planning to return to explore more of Dorset.

    Jess2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Jenna's hospitality was exceptional. Although we only stopped for one night we got the feeling that nothing would have been too much for them both. Being set back from the road the accommodation was very quiet. There were many little extras provided such as tea, coffee, drinking chocolate, milk and a choice of shower gels etc. The breakfast which is included was fantastic. We would definitely recommend and consider visiting again.

    Alan2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The location and ambience of the home is outstanding, accompanied by excellent communications and an amazing welcome. Everything is as listed, but the attention to detail on the amenities (speciality teas, cake, etc) were above and beyond our expectations. Not forgetting the awesome breakfast. The welcome and local knowledge that was shared by Chris & Jenna was also very useful, but surpassed by the friendly welcome yet professional approach that made the stay perfect.

    Phil2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Chris & Jenna were perfect hosts, we chose Bed & breakfast option, breakfast was 'to die for' with fresh duck eggs and enough to keep you going for the day. Accommodation was perfect, lots of little personal touches, lovely thought out space. Perfect location to explore the beautiful Dorset countryside. A definite return in future years to explore more.

    Clare2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Breakfasts are absolutely gorgeous. Hospitality is first class. Accommodation is extremely comfortable. Peace and quiet and views across the fields are amazing. From the first point of contact on arrival to good byes when you go were extremely delightful.

    It is very 'English' here: quiet, clean air, no light pollution, lots of wild-life, friendly village, cosy accommodation with log fire in the winter, sunny conservatory and garden in the summer. Close to main-line rail: London - West Country. Historic towns, ancient stone circles, Jurassic coast, River Stour and Trailway walks all within easy reach. Although this location feels like it is "far from the madding crowd", it is central to much to explore and enjoy. One room with double bed.
    A cosy country cottage with views across fields and trees
    Beautiful rural Dorset village; great pubs for food; country pursuits and events in season; walking and exploring; historic places of interest; only 30 mins from coast, beaches, walks, interests.

    We like to keep the decor light and fresh to ensure you have a nice clean space to stay in. Cottage 1 is excellent for families with children as there's a big kitchen and sitting room and a small enclosed garden for them to play. In the local area a short drive away you will find soft play, Bovington tank museum, Monkey world and many more activities which can be found in our welcome book.
    The cottage is based on a working farm so we ask that parents keep their children under control. We are happy to introduce you to the animals by prior arrangement only. No dogs allowed.
    There is lots of good walking and breathtaking views in the local area. There is also a pub just a 2 minute walk down the village
  • Piers and Lucy have been so welcoming and helpful. Made our visit to AONB Ibberton Dorset so memorable! Must visit the Ibberton the local pub.

  • Really enjoyed a week's stay in the cottage. We were very comfortable with plenty of room for the five of us. Facilities were excellent. Would certainly recommend it.

    Brian2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage, beautiful location and exceptional host

    Kevin2018-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Piers cottage is a peaceful and wonderful place in the countryside. Perfect for bigger groups or two small families. It is well equiped and very clean. The village Ibberton is also worth a visit. It has a nice pub with good food and a lovely historic church just behind the cottage up the Hill. If you go further you reach the Dorset Ridgeway with fantatic views. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to go there again! Bit: It takes half an hour to drive to the Coast.

  • Patty’s place is very lovely, the property feels as if it’s been well cared for, the grounds are stunning and the tropical fruit house is so lovely and warm on a February morning! Would definitely stay again.

    Vanessa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed two nights in the Coach House, after long blustery walks on the Jurassic coastline (about 40 mins drive away). The photos on the listing do not do the grounds of the property justice - the gardens and surrounding fields are outstanding. We also indulged on Patty’s cooking on one of the evenings - highly recommend! There is also a pub 3 mins away which served decent pub grub. It was our first time exploring Dorset and we can’t wait to come back.

    Olivia2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Gordon and Patty are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. Their home is beautiful and the gardens are a delight to walk around. The accommodation is self contained, very clean, comfortable and well equipped.

    Josh2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a truly rural retreat this is the place to come to. The views are magnificent across the Dorset countryside with horses, sheep and cows happily grazing in the fields. Patty is an excellent host, a delight to talk to but not in the least intrusive. She left some lovely touches of fresh eggs from her free range hens, homemade marmalade, bread and milk.

    Deirdre2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place. Patty and Gordon were great hosts. Fantastic food from Patty ( A Dorset Kitchen). Hope to return.

  • Patty and Gordon were so welcoming. The house and grounds are just incredibly beautiful. The animals are very friendly. We ate from adorsetkitchen which we highly recommend all made by Patty. Fresh and delicious. Had an amazing stay. Can't wait for our next visit. Thank you all so much. Sandie and Shelby

    Sandie2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • The most dreamy escape to the English countryside. We were blown away by the beautiful grounds, the local sights and the cozy carriage house. From the line dried towels to the fresh eggs from the farm, Patty thought of everything! Just what we needed for a relaxing stay away from the city.

The Bolt Hole does not have its own washing machine but you can easily use the washing machine and tumble dryer next door in the main house.
    Manor Farm is set in glorious Dorset, only a short drive from the stunning Jurassic coast or historic Abbey towns such as Sherborne. SHERBORNE Sherborne is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful towns in England and it is only 10 miles away from Manor Farm.

Ask Bella and Jeremy for their current favourites! JURASSIC COAST Walk, cycle or sail along this extraordinary 200 million year old coastline. You can learn to surf, collect fossils or simply breathe deeply and take it all in. Declared a natural UNESCO world heritage site, England's first, this outstanding area is only 25 miles from Manor Farm. WALKING Manor Farm offers fantastic walks right on the doorstep. With an exceptional mix of awe inspiring coastline, ancient wooded valleys, rolling chalk downlands and secluded river valleys, Dorset is a true rambler’s paradise.
  • We really enjoyed staying @ the Bolt Hole. Arabella, is a great host. She answered all our questions and helped us settle in in no time. Very good knowledge of the local area and what her guests need. Best of all, the location is perfect to just turn off and relax. Private space and garden that we enjoyed. Easy access to the seaside: highly recommend Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door[get there before 1 if you need parking on site]. You’d love it if you want to go for a run or walks. Bella recommended all the best places. I could go on and on: easily 5-Star Host and location!!

    Aude2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Manor Farm is accurately described. Clean and comfortable. Fantastic scenery and lots of places to visit. So we had a great week at the ‘estate’ of our lovely hosts Jeremy and Arabella (thanks for the bouquet of flowers).

    Jacqueline2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • The property is located in a very beautiful rural area and on a great farm with a great garden. We rented the small apartment. This is really small but well equipped and quite comfortable. We spent three nights at the farm and would prefer more space for a longer stay. The hosts are incredibly warm and helpful and have great tips. For the area of England to explore a good choice.

    Katy2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • we had a wonderful stay with great hosts

    Colin2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • The name says it all, ‘The Bolt Hole’, it’s a little haven in a rural area in Dorset but by car it is possible to get to everywhere you may wish to visit. The accommodation was comfortable, there was a very welcome breakfast welcome pack. We had an enthusiastic welcome and very congenial hosts. We would go back again.

    Jacqui2019-06-20T00:00:00Z

    Talya2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

    Syam2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Honestly amazing place, so clean, every room had an en suite, huge and lovely! It was perfect for us as we were here for a long weekend but the closest pub is a 30-45 minute walk, there’s a big Tesco around a 20 minute drive away and you have to book taxis a few days in advance if you do want them, so if you’re planning on staying longer or going out a lot, bear that in mind. Overall amazing stay and we will be coming back!

    A slightly quirky house, built in 1847 with 30" thick stone walls. The house however comes with modern decor, lighting, and heaters. If you want a quiet break, this is the place for you, a village in the middle of Dorset, you will need a Satnav to find us. The house sleeps 4 Adults, but we also have a fully equipped nursery for your baby or toddler. So come and have a relaxing time, or use the house as a base for outings and day's out. We look forward to welcoming you to our Holiday Home.
    There are lots of places to visit within an hour's drive, Durdells Dor, Stonehenge, Bournemouth beaches, Brownsea Island (NT), Monkey World, Swanage Steam Railway, BovingtonTank Museum, but to mention a few, there are a handful of really nice country pubs, and a nice Italian Restaurant in the local area, where you can go for meals out.
    The village has no Pub or shops, the nearest being a 10 minute drive away, so please be aware that when we say it is a very quiet village, that is what it is. Mappowder is one of twelve villages in the Country, that the Government have put into special measures. There can never be any building in the village, so it will always remain as it is now.
  • This is a lovely cosy cottage in rural Dorset. It is comfortable, well equipped and very clean.

    Niamh2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a lovely place to escape to the country, so quiet and peaceful. It’s also within a 45 minute drive of so many great places to visit like Weymouth, Dorchester, we had a great afternoon at Monkey world as well. Highly recommended this place if you want to spend some time in a lovely part of the UK and escape the city. Ruth was lovely and couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating, thanks Ruth

    Nick2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • A whole house with loads of space, books and toys. Great garden as well. Mappowder might be a bit remote but there’s loads to visit and to do in the surrounding towns and at the beaches. Great location for walking (public footpaths starting around the corner). Lovely quiet location for an ultimate relaxing holiday!

There is a lovely garden for guests to use and admire the views towards Bullbarrow Hill. We live nearby and like to say hello to our guests on arrival and show them into the property.
    Everything you need for a relaxing break in the countryside. Ideal as a base to explore Dorset.
    Dorset is a beautiful county and we are so lucky to live here and share it with our guests. Surrounded by quaint villages with thatched cottages galore. A cosy pub just down the road.
  • In one word: Fantastic !!! The location in the beautiful nature, the tranquility, the space, the cottage. Carolyn and Koos are extremely helpful and involved with a very personal approach for their guests. The cottage itself is equipped with all comforts: nothing is missing here, everything has been thought of. Nicely decorated with a lot of love for detail. It is also a fantastic stay for people with disabilities because there are many facilities available. Special beds, lowered counter top, no thresholds or stairs. There is even a swimming pool with a special lift. In short, highly recommended ....

  • Can happily recommend the Victorian Barn for a family get away. Amenities were great- the grounds are lovely (check out the fishing lakes!) and the cottage we stayed in was thoughtfully equipped. Our car broke on our second day there and although this meant our planned day trips were cancelled, the kids had plenty to keep themselves occupied onsite. The games room is well stocked, there's a huge playground, the heated pool is lovely and clean and we had so much fun wandering around the site we totally forgot to try out the hot tub! Claire and her husband were very helpful - driving off to pick up my stranded partner and kindly relaying messages to us over the next 24 hours as our (vodafone) mobile reception was poor. Result: what could have been a complete disaster of a long weekend turned into a hugely relaxing and fun stay.

    Anna2018-06-04T00:00:00Z

  • Great location and amenities especially for children. The accommodation had everything we needed and was in the perfect location to explore all Dorset has to offer. Kids loved the pool and games room as well as the outdoor activities. The only issue I think I must mention is the bed, possibly the hardest we have ever slept on, we even swapped with our 8 year old children but they also complained how uncomfortable it was.

    Our cottage is full of family treasures with log burning stoves and a generous farmhouse dining table to gather round. It has a large private garden with summerhouse. It is set in a small peaceful hamlet surrounded by rolling hills with plentiful walks and pubs to enjoy. The cottage has been in our family for over 40 years and offers both home comforts and mod cons in a idyllic setting.
    The cottage is set in blackmore vale country and offers a comfortable and welcoming rural retreat. Within an hours drive of the jurassic coast and walking distance to the nearest village pub. There are toys for children inside and a swing and summerhouse in the garden to enjoy. The interior is cosy and warm, with plenty of character.
    Woolland is a small hamlet with no more than 20 houses and a few outlying farms. The road through the hamlet is not busy. Woolland has a church but no shop or pub. There are pubs in Ibberton and Hazelbury Bryan, which serve food. The nearest shops are six miles away in the town of Sturminster Newton. There are a number of pubs and restaurants worth a visit in the area. Please have a look in our cottage folder for local suggestions.
  • Quiet charming little house with a big quiet and private garden. Stunning countryside and within reach of more than enough things to see and do to keep us busy for a fortnight. Many thanks for our stay.

    Andrew2018-08-25T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely rustic cottage in a v. peaceful location. Great garden and summer house (our kids loved both) and the wood fired heating kept us nice and warm on a couple of unseasonably chilly evenings.

    Steve2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location, really well equipped for a family break. Adults, children and dogs loved it.

    Steve2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely cottage! Perfect for a winter getaway as the two wood-burning stoves make it very cosy. Lovely decor and setting, and very good communication from Eliza. We stayed over Christmas and she'd put up a tree, which was a lovely touch.

    Suzie2016-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was beautifully situated with the most divine garden and lawn. The summer house was a delight for the kids and I would highly recommend this place. Everything was thought through really well.

    Leini2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a great cottage. Amazing gardens, quiet hamlet, lovely log fires and lots of logs ready to go. Very well 'done' inside with a great style. Small shower not suitable for larger frames if you have one (you've been warned!) Wi Fi not working on our visit at all so if it's essential for yours check with host first that it's fixed. Bedrooms great size, lovely country kitchen, the conservatory is cute and a nice place to spend time. Upstairs bedroom is open plan (no door separating from hallway on floor below) so bare that in mind for noise transfer (cough cough). Village has ZERO amenities, no phone reception but neighbours are lovely and their sheep William likes to come over to the summerhouse for a biscuit or three! Local pub the Antelope is rubbish really so you will have to drive to the pub. Local shop (Spar) is small and only really for non-perishable items but Sherbourne (20 mins) has a Waitrose thankfully! Overall a really really nice and cute place and would 100% stay again.

    Elliott2016-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Eliza for our wonderful stay over the new year. The house was a perfect rural getaway to see in 2016. The house was as described as on the air bnb website, if not better on our arrival. The cottage was fully equiped for our stay and was the perfect place to relax. There was ample room for the 6 of us and the bedrooms were beautifully made up with extra blankets and bath and hand towels left for us to use also. Your excellent communication and information really helped us make the most of the cottage and our stay. Many thanks.

    Rhiannon2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place blew us away! Penny and Claire were so hospitable and communicative. The property is gorgeous! This place was the highlight of our trip! We loved the beautiful trails, animals, and sites all within a short walk. The pool, playground, and private hot tubs kept the kids happy. And there was plenty of space for our family of 7 in the barn. We will be talking about this place for years to come. I hope to visit it again in the future.

    Devon2019-05-17T00:00:00Z

  • Great place, We had a wonderful time, definitely coming back.

    Dora2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Victorian Barn was a great place to stay for our family of 8 for a week. The large property had plenty of fun things for the kids to do such as swimming, playing on the playground and in the game room and using the hot tub. The surrounding area is beautiful and offers plenty of sites and activities to keep a large family busy. Claire was a fantastic host and made sure all of our needs were met beyond expectation.

    Chris2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay, the site works well for families, with excellent amenities on site.

    Andy2018-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful, tranquil place for all the family, with added fun from the pool, the jacuzzi, the play area and barn. The Helena House was well equipped, very clean and spacious! Given the miserable English weather we enjoyed for the bulk of our trip, we didn’t have to go far to entertain the children and tire them with the fab pool. The main supermarkets are around 20mins away so would recommend stocking up or getting a delivery. Would highly recommend the Victorian Barn for families.

    Kirstin2018-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Idilic setting with brilliant facilities, the open space, park and pool was perfect for the children. The barn had everything we needed and was great to relax in the hot tub at the end of the day! We had some fabulous days out from here, beaches, towns, museums all not too far away. We would definitely return!

  • This is a beautiful home set in tranquil surroundings. We were a party of 14 (Adults & kids between 11 to 17) and stayed in Victoria and Albert barn. Everyone loved it! Place was huge and kids enjoyed playing in the indoor pool, games and sports hall. The barn is well equipped and we could just spend time cooking and relaxing.

  • Our stay at Maryanne's was just what we needed; convenient, cost effective and cosy! There was lots of room for us to spread out with our baby and dog and was located close to the walks and pubs we had planned for. Maryanne was welcoming and the cottage was really well set up for any type of traveller. We only wish we had a bit longer to stay.

    Sally2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and lovely host

    Louise2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Owl Cottage was, in my opinion, simply perfect for my recent trip to Dorset. It was a great base for touring Dorset and I even ventured as far as Devon. The place was as described and was just what I needed as a single traveller. Would also suit a couple. I would definitely recommend Owl Cottage. In addition I found Maryanne very warm when I met her on check-in. My one regret was not getting to say goodbye to her but I ended up leaving a day early due to a personal issue. I would love to come back here on another occasion.

    Michaela2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Owl cottage is delightful with all the amenities that you would need for your stay. Very clean and quiet and we had a very comfortable stay. Thanks Maryanne

  • We stayed at Maryanne’s place for 3 nights. Her place is delightful. We were greeted by Maryanne. Communication was excellent. The large settee was very comfortable as was the huge bed. The place was lovely and warm and very clean.

    Sally2019-09-12T00:00:00Z

  • This apartment was absolutely lovely and the location was unbelievable. We were visiting for my daughters 2nd birthday and they had got her a card and some chocolates which was a lovely touch. The swimming pool is brilliant, however, it was closed quite a bit due to private lessons which was rather annoying. Overall it was a lovely stay and would recommend it.

    Mark2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fabulous place in a beautiful countryside setting. The apartments (we were in the Byre) are simple yet stylish with plenty of room for a 4 person family and contain everything you need. The grounds are great for young families - a perfect pool, good playground and a lovely walk up and around the lakes. We'd love to come back.

    David2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay. The Victorian Barn is rather isolated (but that could be exactly what you are looking for!), however the pool and the kids play area kept ours amused. I went running at 8am and came across 1 car in just under 30 mins... ...1 car! Perfect. Our accommodation had people above us who frustratingly arrived at 12:50am which woke us all up, that said, the hosts cannot be blamed for that, especially when it states that “quiet time” (as its family friendly) is between 11pm - 8am. The accommodation was clean, warm, and very welcoming, I would certainly recommend The Victorian Barn to anyone that asks. 👍

The house is very well sized with excellent amenities including a private hot tub (but note it does face onto the backs of other properties) large living room, plenty of space for 6 people and en-suite bathrooms to every bedroom. The location is beautiful if a bit remote. You’ll need a car for getting around - even the nearest pub is a good 20’min walk. There’s lovely walks in the area and the communal pool and games room are excellent additions. We had a brilliant time over New Years as a group of friends and would recommend it.

    Reka2019-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • If you want a quiet relaxing holiday, this is your place. We loved the fact that we had lovely countryside but we had several day trips to Weymouth, Bournemouth etc to keep the children entertained. We made full use of the pool, it was just the right temperature, even for our disabled son, who normally finds the water too cold Fabulous find we would love to go back

    Diane2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Victorian Barn, is a lovely tranquil place. Very scenic, great for families and great facilities. We appreciated having a hot tub after a long cycle ride. The cottage is love, furnishing is simple, but have all the equipment you needed. Location is very scenic and beautiful. Nearest shop is about 10-15mins drive away, so don’t forget the bread for breakfast, like we did! I recommend the Victorian barn and would look forward to staying there again in the future

    James2018-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning place in a beautiful location. The Hayloft was a very spacious, clean and modern barn situated in the scenic country side. Only downsides of the location being the poor phone signal and that you need a car to get around which are both to be expected! The site itself was incredibly well kept and great for local walks. The communal jacuzzi and pool were immaculate and we had it to ourselves most of the time unless there were kids’ swimming lessons. Claire was a friendly and helpful host. My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it however there are a lot of rules/FYI’s to be aware of before/upon booking.

  • We stayed over the August Bank holiday weekend for my Mum's 70th birthday. We had 3 generations under one roof. Plenty for the children to do, with the pool, games room and play area. Equally relaxing house, with comfortable and well kept rooms. The location was beautiful, set in deepest Dorset, with lots of varied days out locally. Highly recommended.

  • We stayed here with 4 generations to accommodate...grandparents, teenager, young children and parents. The house gave us the space and privacy so we all enjoyed our stay. The pool house is beautiful with a lovely little gym and sauna. Our personal hot tub was lush. The sunsets are amazing and the hosts are really lovely. Will definitely come back again.

  • We got tea coffee and sugar readily available by the host in The Stables which is where we stayed. A jug of fresh miThe tub was on the patio and very private surrounded by Hedges and fencing. Our back garden overlooked the farms and it was very relaxing watching the cows grazing from the conservatory every morning whilst having breakfast. The lakes was full of wildlife from fishes to blue dragon flies, yellow butterflies and Canadian geese. There was a white barn owl we saw fly by at night and also a hawk we managed to get a picture of. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were crisp and clean. The towels were made up for when we got there with hand towels as well. The kitchen was as described full of cutlery and dishes. We used the gym and pool. There's a trampoline and outdoor slides for kids and a games room. Lots of parking . Walking trail in the countryside was blissful. There is a SPA village shop about 4 min drive away that sells lovely home baked bread.
