  • "Beautiful cottage, immaculate inside and very comfortable."

    Everything you could need in the kitchen. Wi-Fi was great, plenty of hot water and comfortable beds. Great location for travelling around Dorset.

  • "The barn as lovely but there was no indication of the different levels ( a big drop to the kitchen area ,a different level from living to dining area & a step in 1 bedroom ) & steps in the initial information only by email 2 days before we went ."

    It would be very difficult for any with mobility issues .We were ok indoors but my husband found the deep steps up to the property door difficult as there is no handrail.

  • "We were very happy with Six Horse Barn."

    It was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, very well equipped and with a homely ambiance, (although tall people might find the foot-board at the bottom of the bed, a bit problematic). The owner was very helpful and friendly. Lots to see and do within a short driving distance. Pubs and restaurants nearby and roundabout. If we ever return to this area, we would be happy to stay here again.

  • "We had a lovely stay - it was spacious and comfortable and well looked after with enough nice touches that made it feel like a home."

    Also quiet, yet close enough to a main road to explore the area. The owner popped round for a chat and to check we were ok, which was really nice. The only tricky bit was the shower temperature: one didn’t get very warm and the other needed fine control to stop it getting too hot.

    I didn't see 1 clock in the property so that would be helpful.

    I am saddened that you didn't enjoy your holiday in Dorset. The weather was awful and I am sure that must have been difficult for you. I have noted your comments and provided a screen for the front door and a radio alarm clock in the main bedroom. The cottage has been almost continually let over the last six months and the overall rating for that period, which includes your review, was 96/100. Property Owner

    Negatives: odd smell in twin bedroom, no blind/curtain in kitchen window or across front door which is plain glass to give privacy, quite a few flies, main bedroom felt a bit cramped with dressing table, garden furniture needs a clean, can hear dogs barking around 8am. Hence why 4 stars rather than 5. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend/stay again.

  • "We are seasoned travellers and Six Horse Barn is the best cottage we have stayed in for many reasons."

    First of all is the owner Gail, she is on-site to help out if need but never intrudes. She is friendly, professional and nothing is too much trouble for her. The cottage is centrally located for all the attractions you may wish to visit in Dorset. It is spacious and well stocked with all the essentials you might need for your self catering holiday. Within the cottage, everything is of good quality, unlike some places who use cheap and uncomfortable products and items. A great deal of care has been taken to ensure guests comfort. Outside is a small self contained garden with table and chairs, and a washing line for your laundry. Wi-Fi connection was excellent. There is a couple of pubs, take-away and convenience store close-by if required. Cleanliness is second to none; so important during this time of the pandemic. The cottage is fogged at the beginning of professional cleaning, and then fogged again when cleaning is completed. A hand sanitiser machine is situated at the entrance of the cottage. Overall we would strongly recommend you stay at Six Horse Barn, it will always be a firm favourite with us.

  • "Generally very happy with our Dorset cottage, lovely location for visiting the area just minutes from the beautiful Lulworth cove!"

    When we first booked there was no image of the living room so I was concerned it would be tiny but I shouldn’t have worried it’s HUGE and open plan onto the separate kitchen/dining area and very nicely decorated. The only tiny negative is the rear garden was very small, and not terribly private, I think the photos make it seem enormous but we spent most of our time out and about anyway. The owner lives onsite and always seemed happy to help, she has a nice plant nursery on the grounds you can walk round.

Wrapped in two acres of flourishing gardens, with established lawns, pretty borders and a wildlife-rich pond, you can enjoy a relaxing break with your family or friends.

This spacious cottage allows you to relax and unwind within the cosy sitting area, where you can tune into the TV or simply catch up on the day you've just had over refreshing drinks.

The bright and airy kitchen offers all you need to rustle up delicious homemade meals, with a small dining area in addition to the dining room next door.

The double boasts floor-to-ceiling windows offering views out across the gardens, so you can wake up to your first cup of tea in the morning and take in the scenery from the warmth of your duvet.

There is also a twin bedroom for an alternative sleeping arrangement, and they each come with ample storage space to stow away your belongings, as well as bedside tables with lamps for some late-night reading.

Outside is the enclosed garden, with a lawned area for the kids to enjoy, while you sit on the outdoor furniture and take in the natural atmosphere with a well-earned drink in hand.

You have an array of attractions to discover right from the doorstep, including the fabulous Dorset Heritage Coast, which is home to the eroded Durdle Door, one of the most iconic landmarks of the area.

make sure you bring your camera to snap the perfect holiday picture, before exploring the white pebble beach of Lulworth Cove.

You are spoilt for choice with places to dine out and shop in the local area, with the thriving town of Dorchester playing host to a selection of museums and its Iron Age hillfort Maiden Castle.
