The old barn was just outstanding! I don?t even know where to start.

Location is perfect! It?s only a 5 minute drive into Swanage town and about 7 taxi ride. Not to far from lovely town wareham too.

The barn is so spacious and big we just were so overwhelmed at it. We had a lovely cake made ready for when we arrived.

We were just 2 couples holidaying for a week. The kitchen is bigger than it even looks ok the photos . Everything there we needed to cook with. A fully working dishwasher and washing machine ( no washing to do when we got home yey)

The beds were soo comfortable. I slept great. all bedrooms had lots of wardrobe space and drawers.

My only 1 thing I would suggest would be to put a proper shower in the upstairs bathroom as we all had to use the downstairs walk in shower.

We felt very safe staying here . The neighbours next door were friendly.

Also the price was very good.

I could go on and on praising the barn.

Massive well done to the owners you have done a fantastic job.

We will DEFINITELY be back!!

Cottage Review:  

My dad booked the Old Barn for 7 of us to spend a week together in Dorset in July. The space was incredible and the layout worked really well for us as my parents took the downstairs bedroom whilst me, my husband and our 3 kids had the upstairs to ourselves. The outside space was also great with plenty of parking and tables for alfresco dining. We loved the peaceful location and our 4 year old boy enjoyed visiting the chickens and cows and of course waving to the steam trains! We had a problem starting the oven on the first day and someone came to assist us really quickly which was really helpful. The only problem we encountered was the low window in the bedroom upstairs where our son wanted to sleep which had no safety gate and he could very easily open it himself and potentially fall out, it was a worry for us especially with 1 year old twins crawling all over the place. My dad managed to create a makeshift safety gate using one of the stair gates and some toy building blocks, it kind of worked but not ideal! There had also been some damage to the leather sofa previous to our visit; the owners had added throws in an attempt to cover the damage but the leather continued to flake off all week and we were constantly having to vacuum the living area and pull pieces of leather from our twins' mouths!! I think these couple of issues should be addressed promptly especially since the property will most likely be used by families. We otherwise had a lovely stay here and if those problems get addressed, we would thoroughly recommend the property, especially for families or large groups.

Just back from a weeks stay in this beautiful barn. The barn is amazing and within easy reach of lots of interesting places to visit. The Steam Train at the bottom of the garden was a real treat. Can't wait to visit again
