About Mrs Sue Johnson

We have been offering Self Catering holidays for nearly 30 years but have increased the amount in the past 10 years with converting some redundant barns. My eldest daughter and I now run our SC and B&B business together as well as helping out on the farm and doing the office work.

Mrs Sue Johnson purchased this barn in 1995

Why Mrs Sue Johnson chose Dorset

The Dairy is a barn coversion was completed in 1995 from the old dairy and cattle shed at Courthouse Farm.

What makes this barn unique

On converting we tried to keep the same window and door openings although some had to be made a little wider. We have kept the character with it being open plan with exposed beams where ever possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented Courthouse Dairy for five days in February for my family to attend a West Dorset wedding. The accomodation was exactly as advertised, spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Easy for our wheelchair user too. Excellent heating system and the woodburning stove was extra luxury.

Outside there was masses of safe parking and plenty of space for the children to play. The games room was great fun.

We could all eat together round the big dining table. We ordered fish pies from the friendly village pub for the Friday night, and they were delivered ready for us to pop in the oven. We made good use of the shops just up the hill, the Post Office for our papers, Moores for fresh bread (the walnut bread is just so good) and the big farm shop for everything else.

We realised how much there is to see and do in the local area, and we would definitely come back to the same property and enjoy a couple of weeks in the summer.

Great property, lots to do!

  • 4 of 5

The property was easy to find from the directions and close to the A35 to get to other locations. Beautifully placed in the countryside but not so far out of the way to be inconvenient. The property was exactly as described on the website and everything was functioning properly. The kitchen/lounge space was a great size and very comfortable for 10 people. A wonderful venue for a group of friends.

Granny weekend

  • 4 of 5

I had a lovely weekend with two friends and our grandchildren. The accommodation was lovely and very well equipped and spacious. It was a very relaxing weekend with lots of garden space for the grandchildren to play. Location was great with the seaside only a short drive away. The only downside for me personally was the fact that you had the worry of taking all your bed linen which I have never had to do in self catering accommodation and I think this should be included in the price. I would definitely go there again though and it is ideal for larger parties. Some children's outside play equipment would be a good addition to the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments. We offer bedding as an optional extra so people on tight budgets can bring there own to keep costs down. The games barn has a hot tub, alley skittles, table tennis, pool tables, darts board and basketball ring. There is a children play area with swings and slides behind the hall/old school in the village.

Lovey place and area to stay

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed at the Dairy and Cottage at Courthouse farm for the weekend of my wedding to a 'local lass' in the St Candida and Holy Cross Church in the village. The accommodation was very clean and spacious with good gardens and games barn for the children to play in. Also very well equipped with everything we needed for all 18 of us. Lovely area with friendly pub, historic church, village hall and childrens playground in the village. Perfectly based with lots to see and do locally with great beaches and fossil hunting at Charmourth and Lyme Regis. Lots of places to visit with various leaflets in the house to help you decide.
