The Barley Store
Barley was brought over to the UK by the Vikings in the 9th century. ‘Bere’ actually means Barley in Latin so the fields surrounding the farmhouse would have been barley fields. If you look carefully at the church tower you will see a Viking ship engraved in the stone.
It is a thatched two storey converted stone barn with a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher. It has a beamed living area with comfy leather sofa and armchairs and a dining area. There is a bedroom with double bed and ensuite toilet downstairs with ample storage. Upstairs there is a family bathroom with bath and shower over, a bedroom with bunk beds and a bedroom with a single bed.
A bath and hand towel is provided for each guest but please bring your own beach/pool towels. Beds are made up just before your arrival with fresh linen. There is also a welcome pack to start your stay with locally made Dorset apple cake or biscuits and some Dorset tea, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets (where applicable), soap, tea towel, dishcloth, 1 toilet roll, logs, kindling and fire lighters (where appropriate) will be provided. A travel cot, highchair, blackout blind and baby bath can be booked in advance but please bring your own cot bedding. Free high speed Wi-Fi. Each cottage has a hairdryer.
Barley Store is heated by electricity which is metered. To encourage you to ‘Save the Planet’ we share the cost with you 50/50. This should amount to about £25/week in the colder months. 25% goes to the NEA charity (www.nea.org.uk) . There is no charge during the warm peak season from July 1st – Aug 31st.
Is Friday in summer season (July & August) and flexible at other times. Cottages are available from 4pm.
