“Lovely location”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Comfortable cottage. Very peaceful location. Very handy for Westbay beach which was lovely. You quickly get used to the other narrow lanes. Had a very pleasant few days.

lovely tray set out for us when we arrived, dogs had their own dish of biscuits, the cottage was very comfortable, very pretty area to stay in. Hive beach was fabulous and dog-friendly, shame the weather turned on us.I would recommend this cottage any time.

Thank you very much Susan for finding time to send us a Review and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay at Barn Cottage. We loved your little dogs they were charming. Did you know that Beanie would join me when I was gardening with Serren following rather hesitantly behind!

“A little slice of heaven”
Reviewed June 4, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Situated on a quiet farm, reached by windy, narrow lanes this is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Nestled in a wonderful valley the cottage offers peace and quiet with glorious views. It is near enough to civilisation (shops, pubs etc) if you want them but far enough away to feel completely away from everything. Abundant wildlife is on the doorstep with wonderful walks straight from the door. Dogs are made very welcome. The hosts, Richard and Jenny could not be more welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

“Idyllic cottage in a beautiful location”

people found this review helpful

Tucked away on a farm in beautiful rural Dorset, Barn Cottage was just perfect for our "week away from it all". Navigating the narrow country lanes to find it was quite an experience, but the owners Richard and Jenny had provided us with good directions and they were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The cottage was just lovely, very well equipped and really comfortable with a tray of tea and biscuits waiting for us on arrival and other thoughtful touches to make us feel at home. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside perfect for walking and is a great location for exploring the local area, Bridport being about 5 miles away with its bustling town and lovely beaches of West Bay and Burton Bradstock. If you want to eat out locally, there is a pub within a few minutes drive where the food was good and reasonable, best to book though as it gets busy. We soon got used to driving the narrow lanes, you just need to be patient and careful. We had a fantastic week there and would recommend Barn Cottage unreservedly.

“The perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of town living”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I booked Barn Cottage at the last minute for a week's stay to enjoy the last of the sunshine of September.Exchanging e-mails with Jenny and Richard ( the owners ) prior to the holiday reassured me that they were a caring couple and any questions were answered in a polite and timely manner. They sent us full directions together with a sat-nav postcode that was very accurate.
On arrival and after introductions we settled into the barn and lit the wood burning stove that had been kindly prepared for us. The cottage has everything that you would need and has a well fitted kitchen.Car parking is about 30 yards away and for unloading you can use their driveway which is closer.Nothing was too much trouble for Richard and Jenny and they outlined good local pubs to eat at and suggested places to visit.
Bridport is only aout 4 miles away and Dorchester,Weymouth,Yeovile etc are easy drives.
The location of the farm and cottage is remote ( to us townies ) and the narrow local lanes take a while to master but the remoteness is its attraction.If you really like walking there is no need to drive at all once you are there as you have the freedom of their farmland etc.
My wife said that she had one of the best holidays of her life here and that sums it all up as she is a confirmed shopperholic etc.Relax and enjoy as the setting is idilic. One tip is if you want mobile phone reception walk 20 yards inclined up in front of the property and mobile phone reception magically appears.If you get stuck Jenny and Richard will let you use their landline .Wifi is strong, reasonably fast and available in the cottage.
