Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was clean and delightful. The walk from the car to the property was a surprise. There were a few niggles but they did not distract from the enjoyment. The property is situated in a good position for Wareham, Corfe, Dorchester, and the coast road to Charmouth; what wonderful views! Corfe is one of my all time favourite villages and I always have a pasty from the bakers and a tea from the grocers and go to the picnic area by the Congregational Church which has a lovely view, and even an adult playground! Wareham is lovely too and a walk round the 'walls' is enjoyable. The cafe food in Wyvale garden centre is also delicious. Worth Matravers and the walk to St Adhelm's Head is wonderful too.

The owner was always a phone call away and they responded promptly when we had a power cut.

I would recommend this property to others and I will keep it in my file for visiting again.

Great stay in a very well appointed property

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying here, our two children ( 3&2 ) had a great time watching the birds and hunting to spot a rabbit or two. Carters Barn is ideally located for day trips to the seaside and many attractions.

We would love to visit again.

Peaceful and original barn conversion

  • 5 of 5

We have been at Carters Barn for three years now and are planning to return for a fourth time in 2017. It has become something like a second home for us. We love the peaceful location, rural and laid back but not far from such wonderful places like Durdle Door, Corfe Castle and Lulworth Cove or towns like Weymouth and Poole.

The Barn itself is tastefully furnished and has a very unique style, blending modern elements and the original parts of the building, it is clean and very well kept. Zoe is always quick to answer our calls, friendly and helpful. There may be no place like home - but Carters Barn is very close to it.

Beautiful barn with everything needed for a relaxing family stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Carters Barn, it's a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area and visiting Lulworth Cove, my son's favourite beach! The barn is so well equipped with all you would need. Easy to find, adequate parking and a pretty garden. This won't be our last visit I'm sure.

Peaceful cottage close to Dorset attractions

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week long stay at Carters Cottage. Beautifully clean and well equiped, with plenty of space for a family to enjoy their holiday. The cottage is in a lovely position, quiet with lots of opportunities to see wildlife, but only a few minutes to lots of attractions, restaurants and the coast. Perfect for us! Monkey World and the Tank Museum were very close by and we enjoyed our time there. There is just so much to do in Dorset, there is something for everyone. We also enjoyed Kayaking in Wareham and Coasteering as well as visiting Corfe Castle and the beautiful coastline. I would highly recommend this cottage. The owner Zoe was very easy to communicate with and very helpful during our stay.

Peaceful, Comfortable and Idealy Situated

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage, so peaceful and with wonderful wildlife that comes right to the door. My little boy loved what we knicknamed the rabbit run, the small lane leading to the cottage where little rabbits darted ahead of the car. The cottage is very comfortable with all you need for your stay and situated approx 5 mins from Lulworth cove and Durdle door. Swanage was great fun for our little boy with a lovely safe beach and mini golf etc. In fact there was so much to do we definitely plan to return to the area and would choose Carters Barn again. We were looking to have a relaxing holiday with fun filled days and the area and the barn certainly delivered. We fully recommend!
