Super, tastefully renovated property! We only had 3 days here, but great relaxation, we felt at home. Beds really comfortable, sheets & towells first class. Shame about the rainy weather and water-logged field walking for us & the dog!

Wow, just wonderful. Beautiful property and surrounding area. So pretty with the snow that we had. Cowshed perfect and just as pictured and described. Owners and visits from Nutmeg & Pepper, their dogs, lovely. Surrounding areas great. Lovely village pub and also the White Hart in Sherbourne was fabulous. Can't wait to go back.

Beautiful holiday cottage, very rural location. Very comfortable with high end quality bedding and towels etc. Very spacious with a homely feel. Local farmer and owner of the cottage was on hand and very helpful. We couldn't get the wi-fi to work, however not really an issue overall. We would definitely like come and stay again.

Just a great place to get away for a few days far enough from town but near enough for essentials. Mike the farmer popped his head in to say hello to make sure every thing was ok. Not offen I can say this but both myself and my wife said we would come back.

Brilliant stay at the Cowshed. Fantastic location overlooking the countryside - perfect for dog walks with surrounding fields. Modern appliances and bathrooms cleaned to a very high standard. Lovely furnishings as well. Easy driving distance to Jurassic Coast and lovely pubs such as the Acorn and Anchor Inn. Highly recommend staying at the Cowshed.Read more Hide

Very comfortable and well equipped cottage in quiet rural location. It is about 45 minutes from the coast so not quite ideal if this is your priority.

A fabulous property in a wonderful rural location. Superbly equipped with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Accessible for my son who uses a wheelchair with a marvelous walk in shower. Our dog was even provided for with a towel and snacks as well as the fists by Nutmeg. We have already booked to return.
