Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Bill and Fiona converted the barn, which was originally part of the Grosvenor Estate, some twenty years ago. Nestled on the northern slopes of Shaftesbury, it is ideal for a short stay to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding Dorset/Wiltshire countryside. The guest room is located on the ground floor and accessed by a private entrance. A parking space is available in the courtyard.

The space
The guest room has a small area for preparing food with a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge, china, glasses and cutlery. Please note that it does not have a full cooker or washing up facilities. Fiona and Bill are very happy to put these items in their dishwasher for you. Tea and coffee supplied along with complimentary selection of cereals, bread, milk, butter and marmalade.
The bathroom has a good sized shower supplied with a selection of toiletries and towels. The king size bed is made by Hypnos and is firm.

For those with allergies or who are nervous of animals we do have two large and one small dog. They are in a separate part of the house and are not allowed in the guest room or the courtyard. They may however bark on your arrival as they like to say hello and tell us that you are here!

Guest access
Guests are very welcome to use the small communal courtyard area to the front of the property.
