About Mrs Sue Johnson
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 office work.
Mrs Sue Johnson purchased this Barn in 1995
Why Mrs Sue Johnson chose Whitchurch Canonicorum
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.

House was more than I had imagined. Great layout, lots of cupboard space, bathrooms and dining areas. The games room was absolutely fantastic! And the views in the area were phenomenal, especially the sunset in the evening over the hills. Great value, great communication and made it easy to arrange. Perfect for the stag do I organised, and all of the guest loved it!
Great property, lots to do!
The property was easy to find from the directions and close to the A35 to get to other locations. Beautifully placed in the countryside but not so far out of the way to be inconvenient. The property was exactly as described on the website and everything was functioning properly. The kitchen/lounge space was a great size and very comfortable for 10 people. A wonderful venue for a group of friends.
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.
Thank you for the comments.
We offer bedding as an optional extra so people on tight budgets can bring there own to keep costs down.
The games barn has a hot tub, alley skittles, table tennis, pool tables, darts board and basketball ring. There is a children play area with swings and slides behind the hall/old school in the village.
Lovey place and area to stay
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.
