We stayed at David's barn with 8 people + dog and this was a brilliant experience! We received a warm welcome, the place was easy to find and everything was above expectations. David is a very friendly, easy going and positive thinking person and this made it all the more enjoyable. Very peaceful surroundings and little light pollution, making it the ideal location for stargazing. It is a very dog-friendly sheep farm with good fences, plenty of fields where the dog can run around off the lead. Great for making walks in the area. Getting to the Jurassic coast (and other attractions) by car is quick and easy (around 20 min or so), so this barn offers the best of both worlds: a quiet and relaxing spot in the fields as well as being close to the major attractions of the region. I would definitely recommend the barn!
