  • "The barn is in a wonderful setting with beautiful views across the Dorset countryside."

    Secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of getting away from it all but close to local amenities and Chesil beach makes this such a perfect retreat. With plenty to wildlife to spot and numerous footpaths and walks in the area to explore. The barn is beautiful and you couldn’t ask for more from a property. The estate workers approachable and friendly will stop and gave a chat and always helpful. We would definitely recommend and return to Warehams.

  • "Missed a dishwasher and the upper bathroom shower lacked power, otherwise it was a very convenient location, the owners were very quick to respond when I had problems with the wifi, not overly fast but the 4G reception was good."

    Overall we had a nice time here.

  • "Great barn and well equipped throughout Quality furnishings and kitchen equipment."

    Nice and quiet with solitude. a good size garden. double bed comfortable single beds very noisy creaking on any movement. The only problems we had was the hot water. nothing from the upstairs bathroom sink. and a long wait for the kitchen sink. Hopefully helpful notes are. The signage for Warehams is too far back in the lane and therefore was missed by both parties. the dip at the start of this lane caused our cars to bottom out and wheel spin. Clean behind the leather suite we found a book and lots of dirt/webs. Basically this was a great holiday retreat with a few hiccups

  • "If you are looking for a peaceful holiday, but some where that isn’t too far from a nearby town, then warehams barn is the perfect place to stay."

    We had a wonderful stay, everything was very clean, comfy beds and a good selection of cooking utensils. We got to see deer and rabbits and stargazing on a clear night was a real treat. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back in the future

  • "A beautiful place to stay: warm, comfortable, spacious and a lovely location."

    The Barn is in a part of Dorset we like to visit, and was an excellent base for the many walks we like to do. We’ll stay here again when possible.

    And lovely views in the morning! So much land to look out on!! One of the best places we have stayed so far! Quite, warm and lots of space all you need in November! Very clean and has literally everything even, accommodated for our busy 1.5 year old! Thank you so much for a lovely stay and we will defiantly be back in the summer!

    Amazing views and very well appointed barn. When we had a slight issue with something it was dealt with very quickly. Great service. Will definitely be back! Thank you.

  • "A really lovely property."

    Really out in the countryside and away from things. Well equipped with most things you need. Left us milk and juice in fridge and some lovely local biscuits and some lovely flowers in a vase. Really appreciated that. Beds really comfortable . Only negative was we really would have liked table mats to put on tables as worried about damaging surface and we had to clean shower head as only coming out as a trickle and not a spray. Shower tap and kitchen tap temperamental but all minor points with the overall lovely property. Would highly recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage away from it all."

    Very comfortable, had pretty much everything we needed, lots of room. So very quiet and the lack of light pollution made night time stargazing a pleasure. Local pub within walking distance (you'll need to take a torch and brace yourself for the uphill climb on the way back) but the cottage has everything you need in the kitchen (nearly - couldn't find a corkscrew but luckily we came prepared!) to cater for yourselves. It was a perfect base for going out to other places in the car - Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Bridport amongst others without getting caught up in single track roads with oncoming tractors. The coast was within walking distance if you're an energetic sort with plenty of stamina. Lovely views as you come out of the top of the road from the cottage. We would recommend visiting Nothe Fort and the WW2 Museum in Weymouth, Bridport was nice little town for wandering around. Lyme Regis was very lovely, if you want to look for fossils, do check the tide times before you go to avoid disappointment (this also goes for Charmouth) lots of interesting shops in Lyme Regis, fossils obviously but tasty bakeries and specialist deli/drink shops, arts and crafts type shops. Depending on where you park, it is all uphill but stopping off at all the interesting shops takes the strain out of it. Back to the cottage.... getting back after a long day out was like going home. The security light comes on as you park up to welcome you home, the cottage is warm and cosy (and yet there is no heating on - may be an issue in the height of summer unless there are fans brought in at that time?), the settee is like a nice warm hug - all good quality and comfortable furniture throughout. There are two showers/toilets. The upstairs one doesn't have enough oomph for a quick in and out shower but the downstairs one is very powerful. Oddly, neither room has a lock on the door. Fine if you're just a couple or there with your children but unnerving if you're a group friends. I don't normally take a hairdryer with me but just happened to on this occasion. Glad I did as I didn't come across one in the week we were there. Also, the notes we were sent after booking said that we would need to supply our own tea towels and oven gloves, this we did but needn't have bothered as everything was there already. Washing up liquid, laundry detergent, cleaning cloths were all there, you only need to bring your own if you need to know exactly what brand/ingredients are involved. More generous than most with the toilet paper too - a new one on the holder and another in the cupboard in both bathrooms. I note on an earlier review that they had difficulty accessing the key in the security box. We had the same issue but you just need a key or a coin to push the black catch down, it's too fiddly for fingers. All in all, it was a lovely stay and we would use it again if visiting the area.

  • "We had some difficulty entering the property."

    It was only at the 6th attempt that the key box opened. We are familiar with this type of key box. We have one at home so we know how to use them. We had a very good holiday. It was beautiful but also very peaceful. The views from the property were magnificent. We would have liked some more garden furniture. The bbq bottom burnt out on first use. Would we rent this property again. Oooh yes, despite the problems.

    The location of this property was fantastic, there are no other properties within one mile totally isolated which was exactly what we expected and wanted, the wildlife was all around, many deer, rabbits, pheasants and many more country walks to die for a great relaxing week in a lovely holiday cottage would definitely come back
