The Hay Barn is a cozy 1 bedroom let, & is a perfect country getaway/ retreat for either a couple or small family.
The barn is renovated to a high standard, with great amenities, lovely kitchen (including washing machine & oven), great shower/ bathroom, log burner etc. There is an adjoining let but we found it no problem, the barn was both private & quiet.
Sarah (owner) was incredibly helpful arranging a last minute let during the Xmas period for us (while she was on holiday), so huge kudos for that.
The location is absolutely fantastic for exploring north Dorset (& Somerset/ Wiltshire). The Hay Barn itself is situated in a quiet, rural farm/ village but is within easy reach of many fabulous local towns - Sherborne, Yeovil, Sturminster Newton, Blandford, Shaftsbury, Dorchester etc. - Salisbury (& Poole) are also within an hours drive.
There are a huge number of beauty/ spots/ local attractions to visit (the list literally goes on & on) - Glastonbury Tor, the Magna Carta at Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge, Avebury, Eggardon & Hambledon Hill, Maiden Castle - a name but a few. Lots of great pubs & local restaurants also in the immediate area.
Finally, there is George the friendly farm cat :) Highly recommended.
The Haybarn is a beautiful-The photos on here do not do the place justice- it is cosy, clean and very well equipped. We wanted a romantic weekend in the countryside and were so pleased with our stay. I loved the the fire and waking up to the cows! The whole place was really cosy and we had a very relaxing break. Sarah and the cat were very welcoming hosts and communication was excellent- she gave us some fantastic suggestions for dinner. I would highly recommend and hope to return soon. Thank you for a lovely stay.
I can't fault The Hay Barn, from everything down to the log burner to the Egyptian cotton sheets. This is truly a beautiful place for a countryside getaway. We have everything we could have wanted (even sunshine!) - it is the perfect spot for a stroll to the local pubs, a drive down to the coast or a wonder around the lovely local town of Sherbourne. Sarah our host was so helpful and lovely, and her attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. Felt very relaxed and can't wait to visit again. Thank you Sarah and David.
Stayed at the Hay Barn to try the new conversion and we were not disappointed. We normally stay at The Stables which is lovely but the Hay Barn was just that little bit bigger. The furnishings and linen were a high standard, as always. It has been very well thought out, with plenty of privacy and everything you need. We spent a nice evening outside with a glass a wine and our cat friends George and Itty visiting. We love coming here so will return once more. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
