“Great for groups, wonderful walking and comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 5 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The location is amazing with views to die for. From the minute we arrived and were welcomed by Belinda nothing was too much trouble.
As a walking group of 17 retired folks the accommodation fitted us perfectly. Extra tressle tables allowed us to all eat together in the magnificent great barn while the comfortable sitting rooms of each barn allowed for escape and quiet time.
We enjoyed fabulous walking along the Jurrasic coast, visits to Corfe Castle and Etches fossil museum and a ride on the steam train.
Already planning a return next year!

“Idyllic, peaceful location. Just perfect!”
Reviewed 20 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

My husband and I have just spent a long weekend staying at The Dairy with our son, daughter-in-law, baby grandson and small dog. It really was a perfect place to stay. 4 comfy bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and huge lounge with a magical view of Corfe Castle across the fields. Ideally situated to explore the beautiful East Dorset countryside and coastline. The owners are so welcoming ... we all wholeheartedly recommend the Scoles Manor barns.

“Mrs”
Reviewed 10 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a lovely weekend staying in The Dairy. It's full of character with exposed beams and the accommodation is spacious. The view of Corfe Castle from the lounge is picture perfect. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and there was a welcome basket with home made flapjack.

The owners are friendly and took an interest in our group, inviting the youngest to watch the ducks being let out and fed. There is plenty of outdoor play equipment and ride-on toys for children.

We would definitely recommend this place.

“Lovely spot, great for families, very welcoming.”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Stayed in the dairy, 4 adults, 3 children. Would easily accommodate the 10 stated on listing. Great space, well equipped and very family friendly. Beds were very comfy!! Stunning location, fantastic for children. They loved the adventure play and the ducks!!! Equally it would be lovely if you were looking for a quiet relaxing place.

Definitely will visit again

“Perfect position.”
Reviewed 1 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Perfect for children and dogs. Approach road could be improved as our cars were low and hit the bottom. Everything else was good. Ideal position for visiting surrounding area. Had a lovely holiday. Will go again, have already recommended it to the rest of the family.

Sorry about the approach road. In fact we do not own this road and the owner is reluctant to carry out the necessary repairs. We keep trying!

“Perfect getaway haunt at Scoles Manor Great Barn Corfe Castle”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Great place to relax and meet up with friends.
Excellent accommodation, very friendly welcome, with brilliant views of Castle and Steam Railway. Scot Arms nearby served very good food and travelling to other destinations like the RSPB at Arne was easy.
