  • "Great stay."

    The house is faultless and had everything you needed and more. The hosts gave a great welcome and Easter goodies to help us settle in. The hot tub is amazing and the garden a lovely sun trap even in a wet Easter week. The location is greater with loads to do within 30min drive. Highly recommend the fish and chip van in the village rec carpark on a Thursday!

    Thank you for your kind review. So glad you had SOME nice weather during your stay and enjoyed the facilities in The Barn. We would love you all to make a return visit sometime and explore more of the area . Property Owner

  • "The Barn is a beautiful property which is luxurious, comfortable and practical."

    We were two couples staying there but it’s spacious enough for 4 couples/singles or a couple of large families. Debbie, one of the hosts was attentive and helpful so we felt looked after. The area is lovely with fields, forests and towns with nice pubs (St Peters Finger was our favourite) and restaurants (The Taj in Corfe Mullen did a fab Indian) and cafes (The Barn and The Cow Shed were both nearby and do lovely food). The hot tub was a highlight too!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you all and we are both so happy you enjoyed your stay at The Barn. As you put in our guest book we look forward to your return visit. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely 4 days at The Barn catching up with family."

    The property itself was very clean, beautifully presented and had everything we needed for our stay. The hosts were very welcoming and on hand if needed. Although The Barn looked lovely in the pictures it did not disappoint in reality. We loved it’s peaceful setting whilst still being close to Bournemouth and the surrounding areas. We chose The Barn partly because of the fact that every room had an en-suite which is unusual in rental properties and because it was all on one level once inside which suited the less mobile in our group. The hot tube was an added bonus. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend staying there.

    Thank you Carrie for your lovely comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Barn . We hope you return again when catching up with your family. Property Owner
