Relaxing and peaceful surrounded by wildlife.
We spend one week here with our two children aged 12 and 8. It was lovely to wake up in the morning to see deer, rabbits and phesants from the barn windows. Totally secluded but the location is great to visit Dorchester, Weymouth and other areas of Dorset.

We had a lovely Christmas at Lower Barn and a good time was had by all. This was our second stay this year which tells you something about how much we enjoyed ourselves!
The location is great, very private and peaceful in the middle of its own, large acreage but only a stone’s throw from the coast. The barn is particularly well suited to family gatherings with its spacious, open plan layout and nice size areas. Even upstairs has its own sitting space so it is easy to get some private time if that’s what you want. It is very clean and the kitchen has everything you could want including two good-sized ovens which came in very handy at Christmas! The hamper was particularly well stocked. Overall then a great holiday home to which we will definitely return

An amazing barn; loved seeing the photos of its transformation! All left spotlessly clean by the very talented Sue. Great welcome hamper. We have been delighted by the number of deer we have seen but unfortunately no badgers. Charlie thinks he can outrun a deer but he has failed miserably! Had a lovely meal the the Brewers Arms in Martinstown (dog-friendly in the bar) and also had a good trip out to the Hive Beach Cafe near Bridport. Also dog-friendly. Thank you Lizzie for letting us stay in your beautiful second home. We will be back!

A superb week in this lovely, tranquil spot. Every detail has been attended to in the barn. We recommend lots of walks up to the Hardy Monument, lunch at the Hive in Burton Bradstock and a walk to Abbotsbury for a cream tea.

Absolutely loved the barn! It would be our dream home, perfect location and surrounds. We booked the Barn as a surprise for S's 35th & V's 60th and had a lovely time celebrating here. It's safe to say with the countless long walks, visits to Durdle Door, Monkey World and Weymouth, we are all completely shattered, including R who loved crashing out in front of the fire. We recommend eating at The King's Thai, Dorchester, lovely food. Thanks so much for an enjoyable visit, we could want for nothing! Even spotted the deer running around. The best Rural Retreat property yet!

Barn swathed in mist as we arrived and only visible once we were virtually upon it. Disappeared into mist again as we left. Was it really here? Is this the Brigadoon Barn?

We arrived in the dark , so to wake up to sunshine and blue skies the next morning was wonderful to explore this magnificent barn and surroundings. Liz, thank you for sharing your amazing barn with us and Sue, thank you for preparing the property and extending a warm welcome to us. This is a fabulous place to call "Home" for a few days to discover the delights of Dorset!

Thank you again! Rural Retreats never fail in delivering quality service and perfect properties. But this one - it was exceptional! From the location and seclusion to the décor, equipment and comfort. Everything was perfect - we would 100% recommend, especially to dog owners and families for the freedom of the outdoor space and the ability to make as much noise as you like!!
