This was our second time in Lulworth. The first time was not good at all. Staying at the Old Barn fully made up for it. Sarah, Sally and Andrew were the perfect hosts. Our room was ideal (2) and breakfast set us up for the day. We will definitely return. Thanks for a lovely weekend.

This was a delightful place to stay on the "Jurassic Coast" as it was only 5 mins walk down to Lulworth Cove and from there magnificent walks along the cliffs. The hosts were kind, thoughtful and provided a great space for our visit. They were happy to have the dog to stay too, and the breakfasts were delicious. I would... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in October. Lovely room, host was most accommodating. Our bed was made up with down-filled pillows and duvet, which unfortunately we are sensitive to. We requested a change of bedding, which was immediately dealt with, without any fuss. Breakfast was as good as any we have had in any British inn... More

Stayed a week here a short while ago and would recommend this B&B to anyone. We had a very comfortable room which lacked for nothing, the breakfasts were very good and our hostess was really pleasant. Overall, a smashing place to stay plus being well situated to explore the area.

We stayed at The Old barn for 2 nights while walking the coast path. It was a lovely place to come back to after a day's walking. Large, comfortable rooms and a kitchen down the hall if we wanted to self cater.Our hostess was very helpful and the breakfasts delicious. A great spot from which to visit the surrounding area.

My friend and I stayed here for the first weekend of September 2014. Lovely property and great room, food and landlady. Use of kitchen facilities saved us money and was very useful. A top class B&B - clear to see why it is 4 star.

We only spent one night at this B&B but would have liked to stay longer. We had a nice room with a very comfortable bed. The location was very quiet at the time we visited but there is a pub within walking distance for dinner which was recommended by the owners. Sarah provided an excellent breakfast. The Old Barn is...
