It is located on the west wing of The Victorian Barn, the perfect property to enjoy the sunshine through the day and the amazing sunsets at night. You can enjoy sitting outside on the patio furniture or hire a private hot tub watching the sun fall behind the horizon, painting the sky shades of red and pink with a glass of your favourite tipple in hand.

The spacious bedrooms are king size with en-suite bathroom, double with en-suite shower room and two twin bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms. All bedrooms have wall mounted flat screen televisions.

Why Penny & Claire chose Blandford Forum

This property has a very special place in our hearts as it is where Claire has grown up and we have been farming here since the late 1960's. After dairy farming for many years we converted the buildings for holiday accommodation. We still run a small beef farm a short distance from the barn so guests can see cattle in the fields while enjoying the fresh clean air of open countryside.

What makes this barn unique

The Victorian Barn benefits from amazing views, they are completely unbelievable and you have to come here in order to absorb them. In fact, the view from our reception is truly awe inspiring. We also offer superb facilities such as the indoor heated pool, hot tubs, gym, sauna, children's play area, games room and fishing lakes.
