Bursting with character, charm and style, this beautifully converted 18th century threshing barn will be hard to leave behind.

Two steps down from this area take you to one of the two welcoming lounges, where you will find comfortable sofas, a wood burner and glass doors opening onto the decked balcony.

We have just spent the most amazing week staying in Cowslip Corner at Moonfleet Farm. This is without a doubt, one of the most idyllic, quirky, wonderful places I have ever holidayed at. The cottage itself is stunning, the surrounding views beautiful. The facilities are just second to none.

We had a great holiday at Cowslip Corner. The cottage is well equiped and in a great location to explore Dorset. The owners are great hosts and could not be more welcoming and helpful. They also allowed us to use their amazing new pool which was very kind. We would love to visit again and hope to do so in the near future.

The cottage is spacious, warm, well appointed and comfortable. The area is quite remote and this means it is very quiet though this may not be quite the case when the camp site is in full swing. There are several nice pubs within only a few miles radius that serve very good food.

A great deal of thought and effort has gone into making the property a really great holiday cottage. It is comfortable and stylish and had everything we needed. Our only reservation is the lack of privacy. The glass walls of the kitchen diner look onto the farm courtyard and the campsite showers and toilets are right next to the kitchen. As the camRead morepsite was closed during our visit, this was not a problem but would be for us, and maybe others, during busy times. Hide
