This property is in a fabulous position with lovely views over the Dorset countryside, the sea and the fleet can also be viewed in the distance from the patio.
The property is well equipped, nicely furnished and very comfortable. We stayed with our dogs and the property was perfect for them with a securely fenced garden at the rear which opens directly onto a footpath.
We visit this area every year and this is by far the most comfortable property that we have stayed in.
Thank you for your five star review. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a detailed review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and pleased that you enjoyed the fabulous location of Clayhanger Lodge in Abbotsbury. We hope you return in the future, we offer 3 and 4 night stays outside of school holidays and we will have another barn conversion ready by next summer which also offers 3 ensuite bedrooms. Merryhill Barn is 2 miles east of Clayhanger Lodge and is charming thatched barn used in the 2015 film Far From the Madding Crowd.
Stunning area, fabulous weather, lovely barn

Thank you very much for your review, we hope to welcome you back again soon.
Beautiful, emaculate property with a stunning location that exceeded our expectations
A very spacious, comfortable lounge and bedrooms with a large well fitted out kitchen. What more could anyone ask. Easy to find using satelite longitute/latitude coordinates provided plus loads of parking. Completely hassle free, as the pre-visit proactive help from the excellent companies staff, plus the in venue info pack was completely comprehensive. We would not hesitate to stay in one of their properties in the future. Lovely open views of the countryside, isolated apart from the farmhouse next door. Nice patio area (table/chairs/seat pads) with remote sea views.
Tips: You need to access via a farm road with a few ruts, so drive slowly, but they were filling these in during our stay. There is Freesat in the lounge (and I think bedrooms), plus a DVD player with a few DVD's, but you might want to bring a few favourites to watch. The wifi is good. There is a washing machine, but you would need to bring some washing powder. There is a dishwasher with tablets. You can get take away seafood delivered, but we didn't realise until the last day (I think this is from the farmhouse next door). I wish we had found these properties years ago.
Thank you so much for your kind 5 star review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we truly hope that you will come and stay with us again.
Our favourite place
We very much enjoyed another exceptional holiday at Clayhanger Lodge. The location is wonderful with amazing views and all facilities are exceptional. Very comfortable beds and the rooms are always clean and beautifully appoointed.
Just one little comment— the sofas in the living area are very uncomfortable and it would be good if they could be replaced.
Also my husband says the track leading up to Clayhanger is very bumpy and could do with some attention.
Apart from this we had a lovely relaxing time and we look forward to our next visit.
