We loved spending time in the very large kitchen/diner and enjoyed the dog walks close by. We were a group of 7 adults, 1 child and 3 dogs and the Barn still felt extremely spacious. We were staying at the Barn as we were attending a family wedding in Mudeford and didn't want to stay in a hotel, as we were looking for home comforts as we had our elderly Mother with us - we could not have chosen better. Claire was very flexible with our arrival and check out times, which was really helpful. We are looking forward to visiting the Barn again and having time to explore the area. Thank you Claire for a wonderful stay.

The apartment was very clean; has a fully-equiped kitchen; large tv and 2 reclining chairs; plenty of storage; 4 person dining table; good wi-fi; 2 comfortable single beds and a pleasant bathroom with a full complement of towels. The owners have gone above and beyond what would be expected with extras. There are annotated maps of the area; tea, coffee and milk laid out upon arrival and stationery set to name just a few. I would definitely recommend and stay again if I was in the area.
