About Ian and Alison Henderson "Dorset Holiday Barns"
We live in Milton Keynes but like to spend time in Dorset having grown up in the area. We have stayed in many holiday homes and wanted to ensure that we offer the best quality for our guests.

Why Ian and Alison Henderson "Dorset Holiday Barns" chose Over Compton
We love to explore Dorset and found that this area offered us the perfect base to explore both coast and countryside. The nearest Beaches are Westbay and Weymouth, both around 25 miles. The ancient town of Sherborne has an amazing high street with many independent shops, great architecture and a fantastic abbey. Our children love some of the local attractions including: The Fleet Air arm museum, Haynes motor museum, Longleat, Monkey World, Wookey Hole and many more.
What makes this Barn unique
The barn includes membership of a members only food and wine store, just a short walk through the grounds of Compton House which was once a silk farm that produced the silk for Princess Diana's wedding dress. The food store offers food and wine tasting events at various times during the year. They stock a fantastic selection of wine, cheese and meat along with home made ready meals and gifts.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Well equipped cottage and comfortable stay
Very comfortable and peaceful place to stay in Over Compton. The property was clean and tidy when we arrived, and we kept finding more things that had been provided! An airer under the bed, a washing line outside, plenty of kitchen items, etc. A nice firm, large double bed and good internet speed.
Lovely family holiday
The barn was great - warm, spacious, well-equipped, spotlessly clean. The location was perfect for trips to nearby villages (but the barn is so nice, you may not want to venture out too much). We had a great time on our first holiday with our three month old baby and would definitely return.
Cosy and comfortable
The cottage was very clean and comfortable and provided everything we needed. The only slight drawback was that the wifi didn't work very well, although the owners very kindly did their best to rectify it.
Well equipped and clean just what we needed
Dear Robert. Thank you for your feedback, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will stay at the barn again in the future.

Well equipped, super comfy and well located
A long journey away from home with a baby can be tricky but arriving at Meadow View Barn was an absolute pleasure. The owners had set the smart new high chair and travel cot up for us in this spacious and extremely well equipped holiday home. They had even provided a few thoughtful essentials. Lovely and clean with lots of hot water and very comfy beds - all much appreciated after long busy days exploring all the fun things to do in this gorgeous area! A lot of thought and care has gone into this holiday let making it very easy to enjoy. We hope to return again sometime and would highly recommend to families.
Dear Janine, Thank you so much for your feedback, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Meadow View Barn. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Beautiful barn conversion in a lovely quiet area
On arrival we were immediately impressed with the condition and cleanliness of the barn. Everything was as described and the welcome basket was a welcome touch especially after our long drive down from Scotland.
The location of the barn is in a lovely quiet town with a pub and delicatessen nearby. The main shops for food etc can be found in either Sherbourne or Yeovil just a short drive away. One thing to note is the country road that links the main carriage way between Yeovil to Sherbourne to the barn is single lane in places with limited visibility so take care.
Our kids are aged 15, 10 and 9 and our holiday plan was to be based at a peaceful location within an hours drive of the attractions we wanted to visit (Sherborne, Lulworth cove, Weymouth, West Bay, the Swanage Railway and the Bovington tank museum to name a few!) and this is exactly what we got.
Overall we had a lovely holiday in Dorset and would recommend this property to anyone looking to explore Dorset and beyond.
