We stayed here - in a number of different units - last month just for a weekend as we were attending a school reunion, and this worked really well for us - a number of families, with kids of different ages. When I booked it the address came up on TripKey as Blandford Forum which it most definitely is not (about 25 minutes drive away) but the fact that there is a heated pool (almost too warm), lovely grounds, big trampoline etc made it all very easy. I'm not a regular self-caterer and the nearest supermarket was a good 15 minutes drive (or at least we couldn't located one closer) so do be organised. There are a few basics in the kitchen but not many at all, and nothing in the bathroom other than hand soap. You will need to take towels for the pool too. Comfortable beds, bathroom pressure good. Some of the bedroom velux windows don't have blinds which wasn't so great, given the hot weather as the rooms became like saunas and were really light in the mornings but we found the whole...

Stayed in the Leopold House in the Victorian Barn for a week May Bank Holiday Half Term. We were attracted to the Victorian Barn with its 5 star facilities in the Dorset area and it certainly didn't disappoint. It was so easy to book and the communication was first class, answering any queries we had promptly. The Leopold has 4 lovely bedrooms each with its own bathroom and was ideal for our 2 children (age 4 & 6) and 5 adults ranging from mid 30's to mid 70's. Everything was to high standard, clean and well looked after. We loved the indoor pool and the childrens play area was great all based in the lovely setting of a Diary Farm. The surrounding area, lakes and quiet idyllic site made for a very relaxing holiday and we shall be certainly returning. Penny the owner was very accommodating especially as we arrived much later than we had advised a day late on the Saturday and waiting for us was milk in the fridge, tea/coffee making facilities and a gorgeous homemade cake!

Management response:

Thank you for your very kind comments and we welcome you back to The Victorian Barn for another holiday in the future. Kind Regards Penny (owner) and her team
