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

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

Stayed for one night at this delightful idyll while attending a wedding locally. From the moment we booked Bill and Shan extended their warm hospitality; phoning to see we were ok when we were late due to very heavy traffic and even giving our party a welcome lift to the wedding venue! Hilltop Barn sits beautifully in the lovely little... More

What more can we add, beautiful location, magnificent converted barn, large bedroom with very comfy bed and pillows. Enjoyed the jacuzzi bath in our en suite, would have preferred a more... More

What a perfect weekend we had, staying overnight at Hilltop Barn. The village has to be one of the most beautiful in England, and the accommodation was excellent. Breakfast was one of the best, the other guests were charming, and the owner even dropped all four of us off the next morning to collect our vehicles (where we had left... More

We visited Hilltop Barn two years ago, and was concerned that going back might be a mistake, as sometimes things are never so good the second time around. We need not have worried. Bill & Shan are wonderful hosts who go that extra mile to ensure that everything is comfortable for their guests. Nothing is too much trouble. The standard... More
