Comments about this property

The Victorian Barn, Dairy House Farm is blessed with friendly, helpful staff always on hand for help.
The facilities are first class- from the children's play area, indoor swimming pool and the superb fishing lakes (separate gated field).

Standard of accommodation is superb.  This is our 5th visit.

Tips for other travellers

The farm is within 40 minute drive to Weymouth, Poole and Bournemouth.
Even closer are Sherborne, Blandford and Shaftesbury. All with good quality pubs and restaurants. Lots of beautiful villages all around the area.
We always pay at least one visit to the Stour Inn at Blandford Forum for Dinner.

Dear Penny and Claire

We had a fantastic time staying with you at Beatrice House. The house was very spacious and well equipped.  We loved most the green space and the kids especially loved the swimming pool and play area.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.  Everybody that the we met were helpful and very accommodating.

Our little boy had a particular soft spot for Katie the dog and continues to refer to all dogs as Katie -:) 

On a scale of one to ten we would rate our stay as a nine. 

We would happily stay again. 

We loved the swimming pool and hot tub.

The only thing we did find hard was the travelling (sadly this cannot be changed)

Thanks again for a fantastic holiday.

Kind Regards

Carissa

WEDDING WEEK-END AT THE VICTORIAN BARN

 

My wife and I had an incredible weekend staying at the Barn with all of our friends.

I really can't speak highly enough of The Victorian Barn and Penny and Claire. The Osborne Hall is wonderful and the facilities on site are fantastic. 

Friday night we had a catered meal and the food was excellent. The on-site caterers were prompt and catered for every dietary requirement. 

Each apartment has been finished to the highest standard with incredible views over the countryside, I would highly recommend staying here!!!!

“Stunning location”

Location very rural but good signposting and directions provided enabled us to find the Victoria Barn without any problems. Jasmine Cottage was very warm, clean and extremely comfortable and well equipped. The indoor pool was also very warm and the hot tub was positively HOT even in the cool evenings! Penny and her team were always around to answer any questions. Fishing in the lakes was very rewarding too!! A great place to stay for all the family.

Room Tip: Plenty of accommodation to choose from so sure there would be something to suit everyone!

Comments about this property
Fantastically helpful, friendly and efficient service with nothing left to chance. Everyone in our party (and there were 35 of us) loved their accommodation, particularly that every room was en suite. The swimming pool, sauna and hot tubs were a joy, as was the play area and the games room and the caterers on Saturday night were excellent.

We would recommend the Victorian Barn to anyone.

Tips for other travellers
We all went to The Fox Pub at Lower Ansty for lunch on Sunday which was great and their carvery was delicious and we all agreed that Dorset is an absolutely beautiful county!

The Victorian Barn from 31 March - 3 April

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us use your Cottages and Lodges. They were lovely and it made our stay very enjoyable.

Also if you could thank your recommended caterer's once again as they did an amazing job and the food was lovely.

Many thanks

Fiona

This was our second stay as a group and we are already planning on coming back. Prefect for a long weekend with kids. Having access to the pool is great. Nice to have enough space for everyone and a table big enough to all eat together. Lovely.

Tips for other travellers
We didn't really leave as plenty for little ones with the pool, park and cows to watch. Remember it's a long way to the shops for little things you forget.

The location is fantastic from the perspective of getting away from London, with fantastic views and countryside. Clearly, there has been some real time, effort and thought in developing the properties, and Helena House was a great size for 8 of us. Lovely kitchen and huge living room. The pool was the highlight for the kids and was well utilised. A great size and more importantly, a nice temperature. Having this kind of facility onsite is a huge plus when taking the risks with the English weather in February. Despite the units looking like they were fairly well booked, the pool was never that busy and was effectively a private pool on a number of occasions. We made use of the games room, again which is well equipped and warm (we have stayed at places where that is not the case). We had hoped to make use of the fishing lakes with the children, but just ran out of time. The hot tub was an added plus for both the adults and the kids.


CLOSE

We had a lovely time and my husband enjoyed his birthday treat. We loved the accommodation we stayed in, The Lodge, very clean and spacious for the four of us. We also enjoyed the swimming pool, hot tub and my husband and son used the gym.

Obviously my husband enjoyed the fishing lakes!!!! And my daughter enjoyed drawing/painting the surrounding landscape. 

On a scale of 1-10, we would give a 10 as we had a brilliant two days stay and would definitely visit again. We would be very happy for you to contact us with special offers.

Thank you once again for your great hospitality and lovely cottage, and surroundings.

Best wishes

From the Crabb family
