Wonderful family holiday
We stayed in the Grain store for a week at the end of the summer holidays. It's a lovely large property with outstanding views of the surrounding farmland. We had lots of walks around the fields and up on to the ridge for stunning views.
The accommodation was very comfortable, lots of open space and uncluttered.
The bed in the double room proved for a very uncomfortable night sleep and the matress needs replacing but other then that the facilities were fantastic.
We will definitely be back again!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review for The Grain Store we are glad you enjoyed the views. We will look into the issue you have raised and will look forward to seeing you again.
Loved the setting!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and totally fell in the love with the location. Beautiful barn conversion set in a perfectly tranquil place - we loved the short walk up the hill in front of The Grain Store to the coastal path & the glorious view along Chesil Beach to Portland - it was breathtaking. Both my little girls & my mother in law enjoyed all that the Grain Store had to offer. Would definitely consider coming back.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We are glad that you and the family enjoyed the property and the location. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
One of our favourite cotages to stay in
Since we discovered this cottage a few years ago, we always enjoy coming back. Excellent. Thank you.
Thank you for your 5 star review. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
wonderful doggy walks
We stayed in the grain store for one week in early July and having had a very busy year and recently retired the peace and quiet
and waking up to skylarks singing was wonderful. Our dog, Harry, loved all the walks off the lead through the fields and on the ridge. We will be back.
Suffering from a lack of investment
We stayed in this property in 2015 and were very disappointed in the general condition of it when we went back this year. Not very clean, particularly the entrance and patio windows. Marks on the internal walls. Fluff on the bedroom carpet. Poor repairs on the lounge ceiling. There was a large screw on the patio that I stood on. There was old dog excrement on the lawn in several places - is this not checked? Threadbare quilt cover in master bedroom. The towels were coarse. The patio furniture was flimsy and uncomfortable. The property is in a great location but it needs some proper maintenance and upgrades. A few suggestions would be redecoration, new bed linen and towels, more luxurious garden furniture, perhaps some loungers to enjoy the sun (we had to lie on the lawn on a blanket and cushions), a bigger walk-in shower in the ensuite (I am 6' 4" and couldn't stand up in the existing one) and there is nowhere to put toiletries in the shower. There is evidence of penny-pinching which is at odds with the 'luxury' tag; no additional kitchen roll, toilet rolls, bin bags etc. We had to buy some, which didn't seem right after spending so much on renting the property. Our own home is cleaner and more comfortable and we certainly won't be going back or recommending the property unless it is improved.
We had such a wonderful stay it was really the perfect start to our trip around the country. The cottage is really spacious and comfortable. It’s clean and well kept and has lovely original features. We were so impressed we are already thinking of going back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a kind review. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back soon.
