We stayed at Hilltop Barn for just one night but wished we could have stayed longer. We cannot fault this stunning guest house, it was just perfect. From the moment we walked in to our departure, the owners made us feel welcome, part of the family, they truly understanding the "guest experience". We stayed in the Mango room, which comes... More

Me and my partner stayed here for a night on a late deal. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The barn is beautiful. Very well presented. They are very lucky to have such a wonderful home. The room we stayed in was clean, spacious, tidy and very well decorated. We had an amazing bath as well which was very... More

We chose Hilltop Barn as we were looking for a cosy Bed & Breakfast in the country, and that's exactly what it is, located on the outskirts of a pretty village. A stroll away from the local pub through the fields which we did with torchlight, there are no streetlights or light pollution so we were able to admire the... More

Quiet, friendly, beautifully located near enough to the A31 but far enough away not to hear it. Bill and Shan welcome you into their beautiful home and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was lovely, every day and we stayed for more than one. The village is the loveliest place to be. Our room was gorgeous, big, roomy, high ceilings,... More

I wrote this and when I came to submit felt the pressure as everyone else has put five stars. It really is very good, and very good value, but isn't perfect (maybe a 4.5?).... Quaint, peaceful and pleasant. This friendly B&B is tucked away in a tiny village which will beat any sat-nav! The barn conversion is beautifully done and... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and we had the most relaxing rest in months. The converted barn was beautiful, with every room having a different style of furnishings. The hosts were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble for them and when we got lost trying to find the Dorset Steam Fair they redirected us accordingly. The surrounding... More

I stayed in this hotel the night before my wedding and I cannot rate it enough. My experience was amazing and Bill couldn't do enough for me, even saw me off on the morning of my wedding, which meant a lot seeing as my own father has passed. The bed was the comfiest I have ever laid in ( couldn't... More
