The Victorian Barn in Dorset – 4 star self catering with superb facilities
Welcome to our family run 4* luxury self catering holiday houses, apartments, cottages and lodges. Facilities include indoor heated swimming pool, gym, sauna, hot tub and coarse fishing lakes. The Victorian Barn is a triple span barn conversion with the Holiday Houses & Apartments circumventing the perimeter.
The 7 Holiday Houses and Apartments are completely self contained and each can sleep from 2-10 guests. Several of the properties can link together to accommodate larger groups.
Jasmine Cottage (sleeps up to 7), which is semi detached with Plumtree Cottage (sleeps up to 6) & The Lodge (sleeps up to 4) which is semi detached with The Stable (sleeps up to 4). These four properties are located within their own gravel courtyard. Total sleeping capacity 21 guests.
Jasmine Cottage & Plumtree Cottage are traditional country cottages incorporating modern styling. The Lodge & The Stable are both ground floor barn conversions, with The Lodge benefiting from large doorways making the property suitable for the less able.
The Victorian Barn and Dairy House Farm cottages & lodges are located in the beautiful Blackmore Vale, within an area of outstanding natural beauty and nestling under Bulbarrow Hill, the second highest point in Dorset on a 65 acre farm. (How to find us)
