Alan, Jill and grandson Oliver

  • 5 of 5

So we thought we would take our 2.5 year old grandson away for a week to give his Mum & Dad a break so we chose Park House Barn near Sherborne in Dorset.

A beautiful part of the country lots to see and do in the area and It has its own indoor swimming pool and as Oliver is learning to swim we thought great idea and it was he loved it and so did we we all went out every day after a swim to explore the area and museum's the Tank museum and Fleet Air Arm museum were a massive hit with lots to see and do so would I recommend Park House Barn yes 100% we had a great time and our hosts were the best even though we only saw them when we arrived and then when we were leaving thank you so much.

Chilling in Chetnole

We had a great week in Lorna's lovely cottage. Very comfortable and surrounding area is beautiful. Would definitely recommend Park House Barn. Sherborne worth a visit - pretty town with great shopping and a lovely abbey.

Peaceful retreat.

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely stay. It was very quiet and gave the "in the middle of nowhere" impression even though it wasn't far from town , shops and attractions.

Good accommodation; clean, tidy with all the essentials

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyable stay spent missing the rain. This accommodation was a good base for viewing Dorset and Somerset, including the Jurassic coast. The upside down nature took a little getting used to but this adds to the views from the living area. With only a little work on the property I'd be happy to give it 5 stars.

Lorna and Andrew were welcoming and always friendly, we would be happy to stay here again.
