About Mrs Sue Johnson

My name is Sue and I come from a large farming family near Beer In Devon. When i was growing up I lived in Yarcombe and went to a school in Chard. We then went moved to a bigger Dairy farm near Hawchurch with my parents and 3 brothers. I worked on the farm feeding the calves during the evenings and in a bank during the day . I met my husband through our local Young Farmers group in Axminster and when we married we moved to his family farm in the Marshwood Vale. I have 3 daughters and 1 son who are all married and 7 grandchildren (so far !) My son and eldest daughter are both involved in the farm and my other 2 daughters are married to a farm contractor and Property maintenance man (very handy !)

I started my Bed and Breakfast business after i got married so nearly 40 years ago and have been doing it nealy every year since. We have been offering Self Catering holidays for nearly 30 years but have increased the amount in the past 10 years with converting some redundant barns. My eldest daughter and I now run our SC and B&B business together as well as helping out on the farm and doing the paperwork.

Mrs Sue Johnson purchased this barn in 1995

Why Mrs Sue Johnson chose Bridport

The Dairy is a barn coversion was completed in 1995 from the old dairy and cattle shed at Courthouse Farm.

What makes this barn unique

On converting we tried to keep the same window and door openings although some had to be made a little wider. We have kept the character with it being open plan with exposed beams where ever possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented Courthouse Dairy for five days in February for my family to attend a West Dorset wedding. The accomodation was exactly as advertised, spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Easy for our wheelchair user too. Excellent heating system and the woodburning stove was extra luxury.

Outside there was masses of safe parking and plenty of space for the children to play. The games room was great fun.

We could all eat together round the big dining table. We ordered fish pies from the friendly village pub for the Friday night, and they were delivered ready for us to pop in the oven. We made good use of the shops just up the hill, the Post Office for our papers, Moores for fresh bread (the walnut bread is just so good) and the big farm shop for everything else.

We realised how much there is to see and do in the local area, and we would definitely come back to the same property and enjoy a couple of weeks in the summer.

Granny weekend

  • 4 of 5
I had a lovely weekend with two friends and our grandchildren. The accommodation was lovely and very well equipped and spacious. It was a very relaxing weekend with lots of garden space for the grandchildren to play. Location was great with the seaside only a short drive away. The only downside for me personally was the fact that you had the worry of taking all your bed linen which I have never had to do in self catering accommodation and I think this should be included in the price. I would definitely go there again though and it is ideal for larger parties. Some children's outside play equipment would be a good addition to the property.

Lovey place and area to stay

  • 5 of 5
My extended family stayed at the Dairy and Cottage at Courthouse farm for the weekend of my wedding to a 'local lass' in the St Candida and Holy Cross Church in the village. The accommodation was very clean and spacious with good gardens and games barn for the children to play in. Also very well equipped with everything we needed for all 18 of us. Lovely area with friendly pub, historic church, village hall and childrens playground in the village. Perfectly based with lots to see and do locally with great beaches and fossil hunting at Charmourth and Lyme Regis. Lots of places to visit with various leaflets in the house to help you decide.
