  • "The cottage and furnishings were of a very high standard and had everything we needed."

  • "We spent a fabulous week here in early October."

    It’s a spotlessly clean, comfortable little bungalow. Set in wonderful countryside it was very peaceful and quiet, just what we wanted. It was lovely to see Herbie the horse being looked after in the stables close by and frolicking in the paddock. The visits from little Puzzle the dog each day were a joy. Many thanks to owners Karen and Campbell for their hospitality. They are lovely people and very informative.

  • "Stayed for 3 weeks whilst between house moves, absolutely lovely."

    Great quiet location, stunning views, and a joy to watch Herbie in the paddock opposite enjoying his retirement from international eventing. Cottage was all we could have asked for, well equipped, very comfortable and cosy. Short drive to Wincanton or Gillingham for supermarket shopping, close to Longleat and National Trust properties. Easy day trips to the Jurassic Coast. Karen and Campbell were perfect hosts, and we made friends with their little dog Puzzle. Would highly recommend a stay here.

  • "Lovely cottage in a tramquil setting."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything you need. The information pack had some great ideas for days out, lots of National Trust properties nearby and near enough to the coast for a day out. Would definately recommend a stay at Willow Barn.

  • "Karen & Campbell made us most welcome, the proprty was superb in all respects."

    Anything that we wished to know, whether it be about the property or places to visit, they were a font of knowledge. Though we were primarily visiting friends and family this is a very good location for visiting National Trust propertys, or the seaside with Weymouth and Durdle Door all a reasonable distance away. Also plenty of places to have walks and to eat out. We will be going back!

    Thank you! We loved meeting you. Property Owner

Sitting in the south Somerset countryside is this beautiful dairy conversion, with rambling roses around the door to invite you in, and south facing countryside views to admire on a bright day, Willow Barn is a homely retreat.

Attached to its neighbour, Little Barn, and next door to the owners’ home and stables, it’s a perfect location for a rural getaway suitable for a small family or a group of friends.

The property benefits from being set all on the ground floor, with an open-plan living space providing several areas to relax in, decorated in a simple but elegant décor.

The kitchen offers several appliances for cooking up a delicious evening meal, which you can serve up either at the breakfast bar or at the dining table.

Enjoy your favourite TV show while you spread out on one of the two plush sofas, or simply read the latest best seller that you bought just for this holiday.

Open up the doors to the south-facing patio and relax with a drink in the evening sun, enjoying endless beautiful sunsets.

When it’s time to retreat to your bedroom for some rest, choose from either the double room or the twin room, both providing tranquil sleeping spots and offering ample storage for your belongings.

Explore the outside surroundings, walk along the long sweeping drive next to the paddocks with horses, or wander through the garden past the pond.

Venture further out and into the Cranborne Chase AONB where you will enjoy wonderful days of walks and rambles experiencing beautiful scenery.
