Super accommodation. Extremely well equipped and the fenced off garden made it very easy with the dog, meaning we could truly relax. A good location to explore the beautiful county of Dorset.

The cottage was amazing, a very high standard and with attention to detail. The games room was great! It is situated in a lovely part of Dorset with great walks only 5 -15 minutes away. Will recommend to everyone I speak to!

Liked the spaciousness of the barn (the brochure did not do it justice), the nice roomy bedrooms and the wow factor when you first entered the barn. The pool and table tennis tables in the games room kept our 15 year old grandsons busy most days.

The cottage was very well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The games room was a great bonus, particularly for the children when the weather was poor.

Lovely bright, clean accommodation with ample car parking. The games room was ideal for the children and for the men in the evenings. Fairly central Dorset location so not too far from attractions.

Fabulous, a home from home, would recommend.

This was, by far, the best property we have ever stayed in. The house, setting and furnishings were superb. We will definitely be back.
Mrs Davidson

The house was spacious and furnished/designed in a very practical way - we loved having lots of wardrobe and drawer space. We greatly enjoyed the walks going directly from the front door. It was the perfect place for a family Christmas.

We all thought the cottage was really good quality and very comfortable, the room sizes were much larger than we expected. We appreciated all the little touches, like the great quality kitchen equipment and the very useful book suggesting places to eat and visit.

A spacious, comfy and well equipped holiday home. A very relaxing enjoyable holiday.

Spacious, excellently furnished barn conversion in a peaceful location but within easy access to the coast. We have already booked again for next year. The games room was most definitely an added bonus and my family enjoyed playing pool, table tennis, air hockey and table football. We are already recommending this property to friends and acquaintances. Thank you to the owner and her team for giving us a holiday to remember!

A quality holiday property just as described in the brochure.
Mrs Field

I was particularly impressed with the amount of space in the cottage, as the pictures on the website did not do it justice! The overall quality of the place was excellent, even down to towels and bedding. The games room was a great hit with us and the kids! The pint of milk and welcome cake were a lovely touch. We will definitely be recommending!

A family holiday to Dorset with Grandparents, parents a child under 5 & a dog Our stay at the Old Cart Shed surpassed all expectations, we were over the moon with the standard of the cottage, it's location and the local pubs & restaurants (as recommended by the welcome folder in the cottage) The rooms were great sizes (much bigger than we had expected) the beds comfortable, good quality towels in the bathrooms, the living room furniture was cosy & spacious and the quality of the kitchen ware was excellent! We were also very lucky to have such lovely "neighbours" during our week's holiday and fantastic weather - ice-creams on the beach in the sun on the 1st of October!!! We will definitely being booking to stay here again - thoroughly recommended especially for those of you with dogs looking for a good quality holiday

Just enjoyed a brilliant weeks holday with family and friends. The barn is well equipped and beautifully furnished. The layout of the barns is fantastic. Will definitely be coming again.

We absolutely loved the place! It was far enough away from everywhere so it was quiet but still close enough to all the main places we wanted to visit. The accommodation was everything we wanted and then some! We would definitely come back!
