“Great Central Location”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
person found this review helpful

This property offers great basic accommodation within 20 mins of Bournemouth and its beaches, the new forest and several more of Dorset's attractions.
The farm is located at the end of a country lane approx. 1 mile long with the opportunity to walk along the banks of the river Stour.
We booked a mid week break to visit Monkey World in Wareham, it only took about 40 mins traveling to get there and makes a great day out.
The owner Edna lives on site which is a working fruit farm and stables, so if you don't like horses don't bother renting you can't escape them!
Edna is a great host and more than welcome to help you were ever possible.
We stayed in Barn 2 which is attached to Barn 1. It offered spacious accommodation for our party of 5 and could accommodate up to 6.
The layout is reversed with two bedrooms and a large bathroom downstairs with the lounge separate dining area and small single bedroom with en suite upstairs with views over the fields.
The lounge had a 32" digital tv and seating for 6+ we also had a wood burning stove and central heating but had no need for either, an added bonus was free WiFi which pleased the teenagers.
The Kitchen Diner was well equipped with everything you needed although not state of the art, we had a large dining table and seating again for 6+
Adjacent to the dining area was the upstairs bedroom with en suite wc and washbasin.
this room is only suited for a young person as the bed is only narrow 2'6" the end of this room also overlooks the hallway and has a curtain to pull across for privacy although you would have to be pretty tall to peek in from the hall.The room also has a wardrobe, dresser and bedside table.
Downstairs bedroom one has a double bed, bedside cabinets ample wardrobe space and large dresser for drawer space.
Bedroom two is larger still with 3 single beds, large wardrobe and large chest of drawers.
lastly large family bathroom with bath and electric shower w/c and basin.
Due to the bedrooms being downstairs any heavy footed occupants will wake up those sleeping below.
This property offers great value clean accommodation that you don't have to be afraid of the kids wrecking and losing your damage deposit.
don't book it if you are the fault picking type who expect 5 star accommodation at 3 star prices and like to moan about every little fault, if however you want a great holiday base with a personal touch in accommodation you can relax and enjoy then this is for you.
