Set within the peaceful grounds of the owner's farm and located a short drive from Sherborne, these delightful barns have been converted and furnished to a high standard and are situated in a courtyard setting. The design of the cottages gives the feel of a warm and welcoming farm cottage, most with woodburners and all with delightful, detailed finishing touches.

The area itself is beautiful and offers a wealth of attractions to suit all tastes including pretty villages, sandy beaches and a coastline which has World Heritage status. There are many National Trust properties and gardens that are all well worth a visit including Stourhead, Montacute Kingston Lacy, Corfe Castle, Hardy's Cottage and Studland Beach and Nature Reserve.

This is a comfortable and well-equipped cottage. We were a large family group and had also booked Owl Cottage, which is adjacent. These two units provided excellent accommodation for all of us. The outdoor spaces and the swimming pool are very good.

This is a great place to stay. The owners of the farm are the most helpfull and nice people you could meet. The location is very pretty and the added advantage of the on site pool is great as the children loved it. I would definitely recommend this property. The owners even went the extra mile and posted some belongings we forgot ...

This is a beautiful, well kept cottage in lovely surroundings close to several areas of interest. The swimming pool was very well maintained and cleaned to a very high standard. A most pleasant stay on a lovely farm in the beautiful Dorset countryside.

This is such a lovely converted barn in the heart of the countryside. It was so very peaceful. The barn we stayed in was well equipped and presented. The swimming pool is a great addition to this holiday. The cottage was well placed to get to the coast and Somerset. We had a really lovely holiday and are hoping to return next year.

Reviewed by Gary, 30th July 2016

The cottage was homely and comfortable with stunning views. The owners had equipped the cottage extremely well, and had a welcome box of wine, biscuits, tea and milk, which we found very thoughtful.
