The photos and description of The Old Barn do not do it justice! It was a WOW place to stay...and perfect for our multi generational family with lots of room and farm animals and steam trains on our doorstep!
Mrs Wren (September 2017)

A fantastic holiday rental with plenty of room for a large family. Very clean and exceptional converted barn within easy access to Swanage. Would highly recommend this lovely holiday cottage.
mooring30 (August 2017)

Fantastic holiday cottage and very well placed. Very impressed with the size of the converted barn and an ideal place for a family.
Mr Newman (August 2017)

This was our second stay at the property which says it all. It's a fantastic place to stay with lovely countryside right on your door step.
Mr Hutt (July 2017)

We had a very good week and all our adventures were close by. One of the great things, if you like steam trains, the Swanage Steam railway ran past our cottage, 200 yards away. Fantastic!!!
Mrs Wallen (July 2017)

Large well equipped cottage in a great location. Ideal for walkers or sightseeing in Dorset.
Mr Laws (March 2017)

The Old Barn far exceeded our expectations. It was so spacious and comfortable. The owner had left everything we could have needed, including a delicious home made cake! The location is fantastic for a base for walking or a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed every minute our stay and felt so relaxed. The owners have a lovely tearoom in Studland where we enjoyed a delicious ploughmans lunch during one of our walks. I would, and have, recommended The Old Barn to friends and family. We also found Sykes very helpful from day one of our booking - keeping us uptodate with regular emails and always being there on the phone if I had a query. Thank you!
Mrs Frampton from Berkhamsted (August 2016)

This cottage was well equipped for both the children and for us.
Mrs Williams from Wigan (July 2016)

The house was brilliant. The situation was marvellous with the steam strain at the bottom of the garden and beautiful fields behind.
Mrs Hendy from Whitstable (July 2016)

The Old Barn was very clean in a tranquil setting. It was like home form home. The barn is situated in a good place with beautiful places easy to reach.
Mr Wild from Oldham (June 2016)

me and the whole family were thrilled when we walked in to the barn conversion, the space is fantastic, kitchen is massive, washing machine, dishwasher etc, bedrooms are big as well, parking for two cars at the rear. there was eight of us, would like to go again soon.
Steve G (June 2016)

Staying at the Barn was different from any other holiday let. It was more like being in someone else's house. Everything was of a high standard - the decor, the good quality oak furniture and the innovative barn conversion. It was spacious but with the underfloor heating, warm and cosy at the same time. We called to see the owner, at her nearby tearooms and she was really friendly and helpful. The whole holiday was an absolute delight.
Mrs Smart from Eastbourne (April 2016)

Absolutely fantastic, couldn't fault a thing. It was a perfect base for exploring the area.
Mrs Ray from Southend-On-Sea (April 2016)

We enjoyed the space and comfort and having all the family together. There were lots of provided toys and DVD's. The men particularly liked the wood burner.
Mrs Lanham from Southampton (March 2016)

Very comfortable converted barn, well equipped, excellently furnished. We were all very very comfortable. This barn should be held as the standard other self catering accommodations should be like.
Mrs Platt from Staines-Upon-Thames (January 2016)

The Old Barn had a lovely layout, friendly owner and is a well equipped house.
Mrs Cooke from Gosport (December 2015)

The Old Barn was really lovely and an excellent base. Well presented with good quality furnishings and a high standard of cleanliness. Lots of space and although only 4 of us would easily accommodate double that. Everyone really loved the recliners on the sofa.
Mrs Bonser from Coalville (October 2015)

Amazing barn conversion. I would definitely go again. I love this area anyway and I have decided that the view from the toll ferry at Studland would be my desired last view I ever see...if at all possible. Swanage is lovely, Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door are well worth seeing with the sun out. The sea is an amazing turquoise colour.
Mrs Carter from Princes Risborough (October 2015)

Until we went to the old barn we had a favourite holiday let but this one was excellent in every way and so huge so now this is our favourite. We loved having no neighbours and our dog had a good run in the fields every day so everybody was happy and all boxes ticked.
Mrs Balding from Eastbourne (September 2015)

An excellent property which was secluded & well maintained. Exceptional level of decoration & furnishing.
Mr Wild from Sheffield (June 2015)

A very welcoming house in an excellent location!
Mrs Menet from Herisau (May 2015)

Very spacious accommodation with good quality furniture. The log fire was excellent. The barn renovation photos were very interesting.
Mr Prior from Nottingham (April 2015)

We were delighted with the size of the property as we weren't falling over each other. A beautiful warm and cosy Barn in a lovely location with lovely views. I felt the pictures on the website did not do it justice and it is even better than it looks. A real home from home with lots of space and a well equipped kitchen. A lovely experience for my family. Would definitely return.
Mrs Powell from Gloucester (March 2015)

Great location in the countryside and 10mins away from a lovely sand beach. There were cows, sheep and hens to see for the children. A spacious and warm cottage, many thanks!
Mrs Moulinet from London (January 2015)

The Old Barn has been converted to a high standard and was a welcoming, cosy place to return to after a day's walking in the Purbeck Hills.
Mrs Knox from Hertfordshire (November 2014)

Just back from a weeks stay in this beautiful barn. The barn is amazing and within easy reach of lots of interesting places to visit. The Steam Train at the bottom of the garden was a real treat. Can't wait to visit again
Karen48606 (November 2014)

The Old Barn is an excellent holiday home, with plenty of usable space even for a full group of 8 people. It is well kitted out and a great location for checking out the surrounding area. We were particularly happy to see the steam trains passing by every hour or so during the day. We would definitely consider staying there again and recommending it to friends & family.
Mr Sallis from Eastleigh (October 2014)

Being a new conversion it was great to have everything new and modern. The Barn is very spacious and definitely had the "wow" factor when we entered. In a lovely location, loved the steam train going by.
Mrs Godfrey from Brighton (September 2014)

A big 'yes' from us! Best accommodation we have rented as a holiday home - ideal for mixed aged family groups having a ground floor bedroom, wet room and spacious living room/dining/kitchen. No complaints whatsoever! Our family ages were from a 10 month crawler to 67 year old plodder!
Mrs Lever from Banbury (August 2014)

The standard of the property was exceptionally high. The quality of beds excellent and the kitchen was enormous, with every modern convenience. The sitting area was big enough for all 7 of us with huge reclining sofas.An extra attraction was watching steam trains from one of the windows.
Mrs Carden from Dereham (August 2014)

Certainly had the wow factor when we first entered the property, it remained that way all though the holiday. Everything was perfect.
Mrs Cole from Slough (August 2014)

great place to stay, very well equipped, convenient for corfe castle and swanage, great position of barn, spacious bedrooms and living room area
A FlipKey verified reviewer (August 2014)

Excellent place to stay - really well equipped and very comfortable beds.Without doubt the best self catering house we have ever stayed in. We would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends
Mrs Robinson from Lichfield (May 2014)
