Ideal place to stay
Good location only a few miles from Lulworth Cove. The cottage is spacious & light & very much feels like a home from home. Zoe's instructions were very useful & everything is laid out so you can find it easily. Can't recommend the cottage highly enough & if I stay in Dorset I'll definitely look to stay here again.
Thank you for your kind words, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future. Zo x
A real home from home
This is our 2nd visit to Carters Barn. It is a very comfortable, homely place and has everything you need. Lots of attractions within a short drive and a couple of good pubs about a mile walk.
Thank you, it was lovely to host you both again. I hope you return soon.
This is a Lovely Home from Home
We have stayed at the barn twice now and intend to be back as we feel so at home here! The barn is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and has everything you need. It is in a quiet location with pretty surroundings. There are a couple of pubs about a mile away and plenty of attractions within easy driving distance.
Thank you for your kind words, I look forward to welcoming you both back soon!
A wonderful stay at Carters Barn
We arrived on a wet miserable day and was cheered up straight away
when we entered the Barn, what a beautiful home. Zoe has thought of
everything, all the personal touches, made you feel at home instantly.
A relaxing peaceful location looking out over the gardens.
We came to visit Monkey World for the weekend, which was a short drive from the Barn so we couldn't have picked a better location.
It was a pleasure renting the Barn from Zoe, she was extremely helpful and made you feel welcome from the very start,.
Thank you again Zoe, you made my 50th Birthday very special!

Fantastic week of autumn half term fun with the lovely barn to come home to and cosy up in the evenings.
Thank you for the lovely review Alice. I hope to welcome you and your family back in the future
Great Week in Carter's Barn 👍
Very enjoyable stay at Carter's Barn and would recommend it. Cosy and well appointed cottage, lovely garden, felt at home as soon as I walked in and the little touches from Zoe, the owner, make the difference. Location is good and within striking distance of Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Corfe Castle, etc. It really does feel like a home from home.
Minor gripes would be - I think it would benefit from wifi as the mobile phone signal is very poor but, on the plus side, it was nice to escape from technology. The freeview TV was also a bit hit and miss but, again, this is probably more to do with its location and poor signal and, again, is a minor point. Overall, I would - and already have - recommended Carters Barn to friends.
Thank you for your kind review and I am so pleased you had a lovely week. There is actually WiFi at the barn, apologies if it wasn't easy to locate. I really hope to welcome you back in the future!
