Perfect Cottage

Posted on March 11th 2019 by Jill Stevenson

2 adults stayed at The Old Barn for a mid week break, taking in a concert at the Bournemouth centre. The cottage was perfectly located close to the town centre, but in the countryside. Although we didn't spend a great deal of time at the cottage, we had one cosy night in with the wood burner going (although we didn't need it for warmth). Claire has really thought about the extras - we had a small dog with us and I was delighted to find dog bowls and towels. We didn't have children with us but there are a wide range of toys and games for little ones. We wouldn’t hesitate returning to the cottage in the future. Date of Stay 5-7 March

Surprising Spacious

We stayed here as two families of 4 (children ages 5, 7, 15 and 17) and 3 dogs. There was plenty of space for all. Claire was very welcoming and thoughtful. The inside of the cottage is beautiful with lots of character and the decor is beautiful. We will definitely be back. date of Stay 22.10.18

Lovely converted barn

The Old Barn was perfect for our long weekend on the south coast. My wife and I were joined by our 3 adult children and partners and there was plenty of room for the 8 of us, whether we played games round the large kitchen table or chilled on the comfy sofas in the lounge. We always planned to be out all days so the lack outside space didn’t bother us. The interior is bright and modern with everything required. The welcome from Claire and the bottle of wine were appreciated. Date of Stay 14.9.18

The Barn is truly lovely!

We had a lovely stay! Claire was very easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had. The Old Barn itself is beautiful, spacious, quiet and very relaxing. It's located on a peaceful country lane. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We're looking forward to a return trip and will definitely stay at the Old Barn. Thanks again Claire for everything. Date of Stay 5.7.17

We had a family holiday at The Old Barn and it was a lovely retreat to relax. The grandchildren had a wonderful time with plenty of space for them to play. Although on the edge of the countryside we were close enough to sandy beaches and activity parks for the children. All in all a wonderful holiday. Date of stay 27.5.17

Great location

The Old Barn was superb for 6 of us staying for a long weekend. Loved the fact we could take the dog walking straight from the cottage. Warm and welcoming when we arrived with easy communication via mobile for any queries that we had. Very spacious and had everything we needed. Our one very small criticism - we would have liked a bigger fridge! We like to cook and it was difficult to store everything we needed in the fridge. The kitchen was otherwise fantastic. Very high standard to The Barn, excellent property. Thank you for a great stay. Date of Stay 31.3.17

Beautiful, characterful property in a great locati

Beautiful accommodation. Felt very luxurious. Would happily move in there today. Great location for exploring Bournemouth and its surroundings. Claire so helpful yet completely unintruding. Really handy folder of things to do/places to visit/walks and, to the delight of my three year old twins, a great assortment of board games. Would love to return for a bit longer next time. Thanks so much!Date of Stay 24.3.17

Beautiful Barn in fantastic location

We were all extremely impressed with the Barn - it was well equipped with lots of extras facilities that you wouldn't normally expect, and lovely touches such as flowers and mulled wine waiting for us. We loved spending time in the very large kitchen/diner and enjoyed the dog walks close by. We were a group of 7 adults, 1 child and 3 dogs and the Barn still felt extremely spacious. We were staying at the Barn as we were attending a family wedding in Mudeford and didn't want to stay in a hotel, as we were looking for home comforts as we had our elderly Mother with us - we could not have chosen better. Claire was very flexible with our arrival and check out times, which was really helpful. We are looking forward to visiting the Barn again and having time to explore the area. Thank you Claire for a wonderful stay.Date of Stay 29.11.16

lovely old barn with lots of characteristics still

Posted on February 4th 2019 by Mary W

ideal barn with all mod cons!. location was great as only 10 mins from Bournmouth yet in the country. The only "down side" was that there is no garden and this was quite awkward when you have dogs that want to go out in the middle of the night". Anyway a great holiday had by us all Date of Stay 17.10.16
