    Lovely lay out and so well equipped. The secure garden was perfect for our pup to play in. The play barn is even better in real life. Lovely communal area between the cottages. My highlight of the property was lighting the log fire of an evening, the cottage had everything we needed to get a fire started well. Looking forward to our next visit here.

    The property was spacious, clean, tidy and well equipped. The owners had even left tea, coffee, sugar, milk and cookies for their guests which was a lovely touch. There are board games for guests and an astonishing assortment of DVD’s also available in the television unit. WiFi is free, very fast and great coverage. The property also has a fully enclosed and secure garden and patio area, so perfect for keeping youngsters safe and dog lovers who have their pets with them. We were very comfortable and relaxed during our stay and can highly recommend Rowdens Barn. We are already looking at dates for our next visit. Definitely 5 stars!!

    Generally very clean, but the base of the toilet was very dusty and cobwebs in the bathroom too. The second bedroom could benefit from a blackout blind or curtains, as we stayed with little ones, i had to use a couple of towels at bedtime to block out the light. Lots of places to visit locally, steam train to Swanage, peppa pig world, the tank museum, monkey world and Longleat Safari Park! Also some lovely local pubs close by too! Overall we had a really good stay!

    The various accommodations on this site all well equipped, clean and good off road parking is available. Beds are comfy and Wi-Fi is mostly good. On this basis I would recommend accommodation to others, particularly dog owners as each accommodation has its own fenced off private garden

  • "Lovely cottage with good facilities."

    Games room was brilliant. Ideal base to explore the area. Could have been cleaner- kitchen cupboards had a large spill down. Had to wash some mugs before we could use. Large cobwebs- aware its rural but these had not appeared overnight and place needed a good wall/cleaning dust, Bathroom extractor full of dust. A full dog waste bag left by the french doors (within our enclosed seating area)- we didn't bring pets with us. Would have been perfect if the cleaning was up to standard.

    Thank you for booking our cottage , we're glad you liked the area and the facilities. We try very hard to maintain a high standard of cleaning at our cottages but we clearly fell short on the issues you mention this time for which our sincere apologies. We'll pass on your comments to our cleaning team and thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Very nice cottage, toilet and bathroom could have been a bit cleaner."

    The bed was comfortable and the cottage was well equipped and the information on the local area was good. There was a nice lawn area with picnic benches but our cottage looked out onto the car park from its little lawn and seating bench, a bit of planting along the fencing to separate the cottage garden from the car park would be an improvement. The seating outside was only a picnic bench, table and chairs are more comfortable. We had a lovely stay and would recommend the cottage to others.

  • "The cottage is beautifully furnished, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, cookies and lots of cleaning products are provided."

    Easy parking and there are several nearby walks for dog owners. I would have given the cottage a much higher rating except for the disappointingly lightweight summer duvet provided on the double bed which I found much too cold at night for the cool weather of early May. This is the first place I have stayed where there are no extra blankets provided for colder clients. My holiday was saved by using the thicker and snugglier single duvets in the second bedroom but using them would not have been possible if we had had family staying with us. There are convector heaters but I do not want to sleep in a room filled with warm muggy air. I did contact the manager to check if there was any extra bedding available ("no") but she didn't answer until we were home from our holiday, which was a bit pointless. This is a very personal review and anyone who prefers lightweight bedding will love this cottage.

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Rowdens Barn at Hedge End Farm."

    The property is in an amazing location but what really stands out is the quality of everything inside. From the power of the shower, to the high spec of the white goods and tv, right down to the fantastic knives and utensils which are available. The property is also really welcoming on arrival, with little touches like the heating being on low on a rainy day so its warm when you walk in and the cake on the stand on the dining table. Going away during COVID, it was also great to be able to speak to the property manager before arrival to agree on what would be in the property in terms of bedding and towels in advance, so we felt very comfortable throughout our stay, as well as being reassured by how spotless the whole property was. Lastly, we were very impressed by the communications from Sykes Cottages, especially the brilliantly helpful email about what to remember to pack and checking the car in advance etc! We would be very happy to book through them again in the future.

  • "Very pleased with the property, although the listing didn't make it clear that all cottages in this complex face inwards around a square, which although pleasant felt a tad claustraphobic - there were no windows looking outside the square to the lovely countryside."

    Owners / managers were helpful in ensuring an urgent item we needed mailing to the cottage arrived very promptly and with no issues. Kitchen was very well equipped but had so many items there was no cupboard space left for guests to place groceries. A side cupboard by the lounge was empty so perhaps some crockery could be placed there so there is room in the actual kitchen for guest groceries. The bathroom badly needs shelving or storage for guests - a shame this wasn't already provided as there is ample space. A couple more side lamps in the lounge would also help make the place more cosy (we ended up moving a bedside lamp behind the tv, and bringing our own to place in the dining area). A pleasant surprise was that the tv was a smart tv (it wasn't listed as such) so we could access our netflix etc. The woodburner is extremely efficient. Would stay again
