A very well presented and equipped cottage, had everything you could possibly need come rain or shine. Lovely quiet location and within easy travelling distance to many great Dorest attractions. Highly recommend Carters Barn, especially being dog friendly. We will return.

Carters Barn suited us very well. Its a lovely house, we particularly liked the novelty of staying under a thatch. The house is well equipped with lots of information to guide guests. We tried 2 of the local pubs and had meals in too. The garden reflects both morning and evening sun so we did watch the sunset on a warm September evening.

We really liked Carters Barn, both for the lovely house and the excellent location. It's quite well equipped in terms of furnishing, kitchen utensils, electronics, garden furniture. Fresh flowers, milk, a bottle of wine and a packet of biscuits were kindly left on arrival. The very quiet hamlet of Coombe Keynes was a great location away from the toRead morewns where we could explore all the Dorset attractions. Only quibble would be that it was quite expensive, but it's a highly sought after destination. Hide
