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.

Fabulous accommodation, perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lorna was very welcoming and the gift of fresh eggs and marmalade on arrival was very much appreciated. The barn has everything you could wish for, it was very comfortable and a fantastic base for exploring both Dorset and Somerset. The swimming pool was an amazing added bonus which we enjoyed on the few rainy days whilst we stayed. We would recommend staying here to everyone and will be back in the future.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved our stay. Lorna and her family have clearly done a fantastic job at providing a great place for people to enjoy a well-situated, relaxing holiday. The barn has everything you need plus more with the use of the swimming pool! There's a nice local pub within walking distance and lovely walks to take directly from the property. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here. And I for one shall certainly be planning a return visit. Well done Lorna on such a wonderful holiday home and thank you for making our stay so perfect.
