The location was picturesque and quiet. It was like living in an executive home from home. Small touches like tea coffee milk,bread,butter and eggs were waiting for us on arrival.

Staffords Green Barn was an excellent base from which to explore various walks from the cottage itself or a short drive to Sherborne, a beautiful town for food shopping and to shop browse with plenty of cafes and eateries. Several beaches, Osmington, Weymouth, West Bay, Burton Bradstock are all within easy reach.

Had a brilliant holiday - views were fantastic so many different long walks around the cottage. A lovely welcome from the owners and accommodation was amazing.

The barn was fantastic - a great size with comfy beds and everything you need. We were only there for a long weekend but could easily have stayed for a week. There are great walks and footpaths straight from the barn, Sherborne is a beautiful place to visit, and the Queens Arms pub is an easy walk.

An excellent, purpose built, lodge in a quiet location. Ample car parking. Inside the lodge is spacious. Take your own towels as you only get one each for the week.

This is a beautiful cottage ... very spacious and maintained to a very high standard.
