Family Cottage Dorset


The Cowshed – Family friendly self catering cottage in Dorset

This beautiful 2-bedroom barn conversion, in the heart of rural Dorset, may have a past as a home for farm animals, but it’s present incarnation is pure, sophisticated boutique self catering cottage luxury, complete with gorgeous Bramley toiletries and sumptuous White Company robes and towels. Plus, there’s a family-friendly gastro-pub or two, and an alternative therapies centre, within a short walk, so whatever your preference, relaxation is high on the agenda.

Detailed Accommodation Information

See & Do

There is so much to see and do in this beautiful part of Dorset. The rolling Purbeck hills invite exploration by foot or bike, full of ruined castles, stately homes like Longleat and Cranborne, and, less than an hour away, are the long, unspoilt beaches of the Jurassic coast and the shops, bars and boutiques of Poole and Bournemouth. This is prime country pub territory too. Perfect for lazy lunches with the little ones, of course, but if a child-free evening for two is called for, then owner Claudia can recommend a local babysitter that she has already tested out on her own young sons.

Guests Comments

Perfect 5 star boutique hotel quality and luxury with more space and privacy – we loved it!

Have had a wonderfully relaxing time. The Cowshed has everything you could possibly need for a luxurious escape and that’s just what we’ve had.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in such a beautiful, peaceful part of the country. Thanks to Claudia for creating such a welcoming retreat. The Cowshed had everything we needed for our little girl. It made our first holiday with a little person easy and hassle free.
