I booked this place without having any clue of what to expect. It was a family(3 Families) get away for the first time and we made the trip on Saturday 28th Dec, it was a rainy day and the journey took much longer. After each family had gone through a 4 to 5 hrs (instead of 2 1/2hrs) trip to Victoria barn, we just wanted to get some rest. The minute we stepped into the Beatrice house we loved it. We forgot about the hard journey and just enjoyed every thing about the place. I met the owners Penny and her husband, a very simple and charming couple, with a genuine and warm smile, that made one feel really welcome.
On the morning of the departure, Penny's husband (Dick or Rick......can't remember), asked if we had a nice time, and said hopefully the weather would be better the next time we returned.
At this point I should have said with or without the rain, we'll be back.
If you ever find yourself trapped indoors on holiday due to bad weather, if this is Beatrice house, in the Victoria barn, in Dorset, then don't worry, you can still have a nice time away from home.More
