Fantastic house. Highly recommend.
This house is the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in before and we will definitely return next time we take a holiday in Dorset. The location is great for many attractions and the house is situated in a quiet hamlet with really friendly neighbours. We were made to feel very welcome with gifts left for our arrival. The house is very well looked after and has everything you need in terms of cooking equipment, crockery, toilet roll, soap, clothes dryer etc.
There is a lovely garden which our kids played in a fair bit and wonderful wildlife to look at. Bird feed is left at the house and our kids loved taking it turns to feed them each day.
I thoroughly recommend this house. Spacious and cosy at the same time!
Thank you Joanna. Im so pleased you enjoyed your stay! I hope to welcome you and your family back again soon! Zo x
Very clean tidy and spacious
Ideally situated for reaching all the places we visited. The property was well maintained in all areas and the hospitality on arrival was excellent.
A great place to stay in a peaceful location
We had a lovely week in Dorset and stayed here, the location was perfect for exploring the Jurassic coast and surrounding areas, the house is lovely and has everything you could need.
Zoe left some very thoughtful touch’s for our arrival which really made us feel welcome.
Thank you for your kind words Rick, it was a pleasure to have you both as guests. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
We love staying here
We have stayed at Carters Barn on 2 occasions. We loved it so much the 1st time that we booked the following year too. The Barn is an excellent base for exploring the area. It's a really comfortable place to stay and has everything you need. I'm sure we'll be back again for another visit.
Thank you Danielle! I hope to see you soon for your next visit! Zo x
Excellent base for exploring the Jurassic Coast and gardens
The property was excellent. We have stayed in many houses and cottages and this was right up there with the best. The house is spacious and very well equipped. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and we enjoyed sitting in the lounge and watching the birds. The location was excellent for what we needed. It is not far from the main road but very quiet. It was a great base from which to explore the Dorset coast. We especially loved the walk from Lulworth Cove to White Noche. And it was also with easy driving distance of gardens that we wanted to visit and good places to eat. Many Thanks to Zoe who was very helpful.
Carters barn is clean and comfortable. It is spacious and well equipped and provided excellent holiday accommodation. The wildlife just outside the lounge window was amazing - we did not need a TV as there was such a variety of entertainment, so many birds, squirrels, rabbits, stoat and vole! The location is superb for getting to all the local tourist attractions - most of which have been mentioned in previous reviews - except for the Tank Museum - a 5 minute drive away and fantastic value for £14 - so much to see and do and all under cover so perfect for a rainy day. We also wanted to mention that we had concerns that the cottage was close to kennels, but we were not bothered by the sound of dogs barking during our stay. Thanks Zoe - we will be back!
Thank you so much for the lovely review Gill. It was a pleasure to accommodate you both and I look forward to seeing you again. Also thank you for being so understanding of the power cut etc!
