Our requirement was for a hotel or B&B (Hiltop Barn is actually a premium B&B) fairly close to Poole in Dorset. My wife and I discovered a hidden treasure with excellent service provided to guests, delightful, artistically decorated rooms demonstrating with considerable flair (the lady co-owner is an accomplished designer - no surprise there) and, importantly for us, very good...

Booked this B&B for a last minute Easter break. Booking was done via email - quick and hassle free. The B&B was easy to find and in a lovely, idillic Dorset village location. Bill and Shan were extremely welcoming and felt very at home in their lovely barn conversation. The room was just perfect and the en-suite bathroom with roll... More

My boyfriend booked a surprise weekend stay at the barn as we were visiting Monkey World, not far away. This b&b certainly lived up to its reviews-the room we stayed in was immaculate, fantastic views and a delicious breakfast was served in the mornings. We were made to feel at home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We would definitely... More

We stayed at the Hilltop Barn while house hunting in the area and it is great run by Bill and his wife he is aLondoner who has lived here for 20 years. A beautifully converted barn set on a hill you have wonderful views of the country side and wake up to the sound of pheasants and sheep in the... More

We booked this B&B for a family celebration based solely on its Trip Advisor rating. We weren't disappointed. The property is a charming barn conversion in a quiet rural location. We stayed in a new groundfloor couryard room across from the main house, while our guests stayed in two of the rooms in the main house. All the rooms were... More

Having booked this B&B on line, I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived there! A very warm greeting from the host was just the start of a very enjoyable stay. I upgraded to the barn self contained unit, which was well worth doing. It was a lovely large room, with good sized T.V. (With Free-view) a large double bed,... More

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

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
