The Old Barn has been converted to a high standard and was a welcoming, cosy place to return to after a day's walking in the Purbeck Hills.
,Great location in the countryside and 10mins away from a lovely sand beach. There were cows, sheep and hens to see for the children. A spacious and warm cottage, many thanks!
,We were delighted with the size of the property as we weren't falling over each other. A beautiful warm and cosy Barn in a lovely location with lovely views. I felt the pictures on the website did not do it justice and it is even better than it looks. A real home from home with lots of space and a well equipped kitchen. A lovely experience for my family. Would definitely return.
Mrs Powell, Gloucestershire
,Very spacious accommodation with good quality furniture. The log fire was excellent. The barn renovation photos were very interesting.
Mr Prior, Derbyshire
,A very welcoming house in an excellent location!
,An excellent property which was secluded & well maintained. Exceptional level of decoration & furnishing.
Mr Wild, South Yorkshire
,Until we went to the old barn we had a favourite holiday let but this one was excellent in every way and so huge so now this is our favourite. We loved having no neighbours and our dog had a good run in the fields every day so everybody was happy and all boxes ticked.
Mrs Balding, East Sussex
,Amazing barn conversion. I would definitely go again. I love this area anyway and I have decided that the view from the toll ferry at Studland would be my desired last view I ever see...if at all possible. Swanage is lovely, Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door are well worth seeing with the sun out. The sea is an amazing turquoise colour.
Mrs Carter, Buckinghamshire
,The Old Barn was really lovely and an excellent base. Well presented with good quality furnishings and a high standard of cleanliness. Lots of space and although only 4 of us would easily accommodate double that. Everyone really loved the recliners on the sofa.
Madeleine Bonser, Leicestershire
,The Old Barn had a lovely layout, friendly owner and is a well equipped house.
Mrs Cooke, Hampshire
,Very comfortable converted barn, well equipped, excellently furnished. We were all very very comfortable. This barn should be held as the standard other self catering accommodations should be like.
Mrs Platt, Surrey
,We particularly liked the comfort of The Old Barn, with space within to enjoy quiet when needed. Home from home facilities. Snug area around the wood burner for relaxation. Quality beds.
,We enjoyed the space and comfort and having all the family together. There were lots of provided toys and DVD's. The men particularly liked the wood burner.
Mrs Lanham, Hampshire
,Absolutely fantastic, couldn't fault a thing. It was a perfect base for exploring the area.
,Staying at the Barn was different from any other holiday let. It was more like being in someone else's house. Everything was of a high standard - the decor, the good quality oak furniture and the innovative barn conversion. It was spacious but with the underfloor heating, warm and cosy at the same time. We called to see the owner, at her nearby tearooms and she was really friendly and helpful. The whole holiday was an absolute delight.
Mrs Smart, East Sussex
,The Old Barn was very clean in a tranquil setting. It was like home form home. The barn is situated in a good place with beautiful places easy to reach.
Mr Wild, Lancashire
,The house was brilliant. The situation was marvellous with the steam strain at the bottom of the garden and beautiful fields behind.
Mrs Hendy, kent
,This cottage was well equipped for both the children and for us.
