“Wonderful homely cottage, perfect for getting away from everyday life”

We stayed at Barn Cottage with our 2 year old and Jack Russell dog - had a lovely week, no phone reception suited us down to the ground - we actually got to forget about everything for a week and concentrate on proper family time.

We loved the walks out the back door across the fields, feeding the sheep, log fires, comfy beds and the cosy living room. The owners were lovely people. Hope to visit again one day.

Pecorama was a big hit with my son who hasn't stopped talking about the choo choo trains, so we can definitely recommend that.

“Lovely secluded retreat”

On the beach wasn't really on our list of needed items when we looked from somewhere to stay. However the location of Barn Cottage was a very happy accident, set beautifully on a farm in a pretty much unspoilt area of Dorset made the stay feel like a true get away. There are plenty of local good walks and some good pubs to eat at nearby (although the hill between Poorton and Powerstock makes it a sensibly heavy walk to get there, but it's definitely walkable). As you're on the farm already there is pretty much some private wandering available up to the nearby fields, and we even found a few fossils in the stream after some tips from the owners.

The cottage itself is a good, heavily built old stone barn, converted wonderfully, with a well kitted kitchen and a more than usable shower (and bath), which is a joy in such a property (we love a good shower and this one was great for a single storey property on a spring water system). The weather was good to us so the large wood burner already set with a fire laid for us wasn't really needed, but made a great feature in the room despite that. The decor is of an older style, which suited the cottage well and wasn't intrusive. The secluded nature of the property meaning no mobile signal was made up for well by the good wifi coverage. The smaller bedroom with the two single beds would be fine for a couple of children and just about managed to fit our standard travel cot without having to try too hard.

The reception couldn't have been friendlier, and when there was a problem it was sorted with no difficulty or hassle, which is a major plus factor for any holiday let. The owners were onsite and approachable, but not in any way intrusive.

“A little slice of heaven in Dorset.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week in an idyllic cottage tucked away in the countryside. The cottage itself was cosy and welcoming, especially the log burning stove and the views from the windows were very pretty. Our favourite places to visit were Lyme Regis,[ lovely cream teas],
Weymouth, with its gorgeous beach and West Bay with its dramatic cliffs. Added to this the warm welcome we received from the owners made it very hard to leave.

Tucked away in the rural dorset countryside we found an absolute gem. The Barn Cottage is absolutely beautiful; recently renovated, the cottage is cozy with spacious living areas and a lovely private garden. We loved hearing the sound of the birds and the bubbling brook, with no cars or neighbours to disturb the peace. With Bridport/West Bay a short drive away, there is still plenty to do in the area, as well as enjoy being off the beaten track. The owners are a charming couple who really made us feel very welcome and completely at home. Highly recommend

“Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location; we'll definitely be back!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

A comfortable and charming cottage in an extremely peaceful and stunning location. Barn Cottage is ideally situated for exploring the West Dorset and East Devon coastline and its historic towns including Weymouth, Bridport and Lyme Regis. There are many nature reserves, several of which are right on the doorstep, providing ideal opportunities for short or long walks. The owners are extremely welcoming, kind and helpful but never intrusive. The lanes leading to the cottage are easily navigable. Local pubs are just a few minutes away, and the shopping centre only 15 minutes drive.

Very cute little cottage about 15mins from the coast through some gorgeous countryside. Although its in the grounds of the owners small farm it feels very private and you have your own walkway round the back. I would go again just for the huge log fire and unlimited logs. Downside is the decor is very traditional and may not be to everyone's taste but we were out everyday exploring the stunning coastline. So peaceful, gorgeous gardens and very welcoming owners.
