We had a busy week preparing for a family wedding; the barn was beautiful, quiet and offered privacy and comfort. It was marvellous to relax with a swim in the pool and recharge our batteries! Spacious and charming sitting room, with plenty of space to cook and dine too, with gorgeous views to enjoy. Friendly welcome but left in peace! We will certainly book again.
A beautiful place to stay
The Barn is a wonderful place to relax and visit the Dorset coast from. The Barn is beautiful and our Grandchildren enjoyed both the walks and swimming that the location has to offer. Our second visit and I am sure we will return.
A Little Gem
A great barn especially for four. A large lounge with varanda that overlooks the beautiful countryside. The pool was a good size with showers. It was great to come back here and relax in peace and quiet. The host was friendly and helpful. The local pub, a 10 minute walk, provided great beer & food. Plenty to do in surrounding area, but a car is definitely needed. Nearest shop is a good 15 mins drive.
We're a bit special and so was Park House Farm
We find travelling quite difficult as we have many factors to consider as our son who is 18 is autistic and non-verbal and can be a bit of an early riser.
The listing provided all the information for us to make a decision that it seemed like a suitable place for us to try and had the added bonus of being only an hour away from us, so gave a great opportunity to explore an area, so near but one we haven't spent much time in.
We contacted Lorna and she answered our queries and we were really pleased with the location and the property upon our arrival.
The property is clean and in good order with great features like a walled garden and a balcony, it was a shame that the weather was poor, so we couldn't really benefit from them though. However the swimming pool made up for the poor weather and is a great feature.
It was also great to chat with Lorna and meet her horses and really friendly dog.
The villages of Chetnole and Leigh are lovely and the garage shop was well stocked and had good friendly service.
We would definitely recommend Park House Barn anytime.
LOVELY AND SPACIOUS,

3-day Easter school holiday
Had a lovely stay here with the family this week. The barn was warm and welcoming with everything you need for a home away from home.
Ideally located for many local attractions and with the town of Sherborne on the doorstep.
We enjoyed visiting the Abbey there as well as going further afield to see Cheddar Gorge and Hive Bay during our stay.
I would highly recommend Park House Barn and the owners Laura and Andrew who were very helpful throughout our stay.
