The Barn Flat on a small farm with stunning views over the Dorset countryside with great access to local towns, beautiful walks and of course the Wessex coastline. Mainline stations nearby. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful bit of Dorset and ensuring your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. Nearby Sherborne offers you great shops, the Abbey, 2 castles and many cafes & restaurants. Easy access from us to Bath, Dorchester, Salisbury and London.

The space
The Barn Flat is self contained but next to the main house so we are nearby if needed. Built last year and decorated to a very high standard, it makes the most of our wonderful, rural setting. Although we are only 10 minutes from Sherborne we are in the middle of beautiful farming and rural Dorset.

Guest access
You will have designated parking next to the flat and your own access to this self contained accommodation. The flat is newly decorated with a kitchenette/diner/sitting room, twin bedroom and spacious bathroom. Each room boasts fabulous views for you to enjoy, particularly some very spoiling sunsets (although we cannot accept responsibility for the weather!).

Other things to note
We do have horses, dogs, a cat, chickens, sheep and 3 sons. Please warn us in advance of any allergies!

Access to the flat is up a reasonably steep staircase. There is a strong handrail but we regret there is no lift or wheelchair access.

Pre-ordering food: If you are keen to have a break from food, there are several good pubs in the area and details of these can be found in the flat or requested from Alice before your visit. Alternatively, why not book some fabulous ready-prepared suppers, delivered frozen to the Barn Flat? Please ask Alice for details of the Holway Kitchen menus. This is a local catering firm we can heartily recommend!

Our house used to be a small farm and whilst we do not farm now, we are surrounded by two working, dairy farms. The views from the flat reach over the famous Blackmore Vale to Batcombe Hill and beyond.

This is great country for walking and cycling. Please ask for details when you book.

My husband and I, plus our three sons (15, 13, 11) have lived here for 14 years. I was born only a few miles away so Dorset is very much my home. We all love our little piece of England and truly appreciate living here. We look forward to sharing this with you.
