Another great visit and friends reunion

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Wears Farm for several years and it's never failed to please. As with many groups of friends we are spread across the country Lake District, Cheshire & East Sussex and so came together for the first time in three years to the Grain Store. The Grain Store is a great venue with its open plan living and terrific outside space, from working in the kitchen you can still put the world to rights even when people are at the dining table or on the couch. The outside offers open views across the valley towards Dorchester, the lounge window one can see Hardys monument in the distance and from the front door the Ridgeway. From the three well appointed bedrooms the views are just as pleasing, especially our choice of bedroom the one facing west with the large window and window seat. From this view point the Ridgeway, Hardys monument and views towards Dorchester can be gained, and on the sunny mornings it streams through the window into the bedroom.

Having mentioned the Ridgeway its on the doorstep and just a few minutes walk up one is greeted with to me, one of the best views in the world Abbotsbury, the Fleet, Chesil Beach and on to Portland in the distance. On many mornings we have taken a flask of coffe and sat here watching the world go by. Having done many of the walks locally we took our friends up onto Portland, left our cars near to Church Ope, then the bus to Weymouth bus station from here you can walk the old Portland railway back to Church Ope. There are more details online look for Julia Bradbury railway walk Weymouth to Portland, we all enjoyed it the bus ride , the walk and the views.

The Grain Store is well a ppointed in kitchen terms enabling one to easily cater for all, with a large dining table along with the teak garden furniture where you can breakfast taking in the views or during the day Take advantage of the supplied BBQ, bring your own charcoal.

Having said the kitchen is well appointed there are many opportunities to dine locally in Pucknowle, Portisham or West Bexington as well as further a field.

There is so much to do, too much to mention here and the week soon went but we all agreed we would be back.

Easter break

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth stay with Luxury Dorset Cottages. As usual, the accommodation was very clean. The location is excellent for exploring this area of Dorset. We did experience a problem with the cooker on our first evening but an engineer arrived within a couple of hours of raising the issue. I have scored the comfort as “OK” due to the issue with the water pressure which greatly affected the showers and the washing machine which needs upgrading. We had a lovely break and shallvbe visiting again.

Lovely barn

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable stay at The Grain Store. It was spacious, beautifully situated with countryside views from all the windows and spotlessly clean. Everything was of the highest standard— kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms all excellent.

The Christmas Tree was just fabulous and it was so nice to come back after a day out and put the lights on, making the atmosphere very festive and relaxing.

Customer service as ever was brilliant. Thank you to Jasmine, Nikki and the team at Dorset Luxury Cottages.

We will definitely return.

Lovely place to stay

Not our first stay with Luxury Dorset Cottages so we knew the standard of accommodation would be high and we were not disappointed. A very comfortable, stylish and well equipped cottage in a great location. We look forward to visiting again.

Wonderful house in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at The Grain Store (we hired the Cow Byre too for a family minibreak). The location is wonderful, a stone's throw from Abbotsbury with spectacular views. Good for the soul!

The main room is huge and comfortable so great for a large family get-together. The kitchen was well-equipped. My only recommendation would be to install a wood-burning stove which would improve the cosiness factor by tenfold!

The bedrooms are lovely, cosy and comfortable. Customer service was faultless, everyone we spoke to was super helpful, and they even let us stay a little longer while we were waiting for our car to be towed away, which was very kind!

We also really appreciated the warm welcome given to dogs. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Love These Dorset Cottages

  • 5 of 5

I think this is about my 6th time I've stayed with Luxury Dorset Cottages having stayed at Clayhanger, Melbury Osmond and most recently at the Grain Store. The accommodation is always perfect - to an exceptionally high standard and the most convenient of locations for walking along the coast from Abbotsbury. The White Company linen is fab and the kitchen kitted out to a good level where we can all cook an evening meal. I would always recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
