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 a Smart TV, comfy leather sofa and armchairs and a dining area. There is a bedroom with double bed (room for a travel cot) 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 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 treat and some Dorset tea, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets (where applicable), soap, tea towel, dishcloth, 2 toilet rolls, a free basket of logs, kindling and fire lighters (where appropriate) will be provided. Free High Speed in cottage 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 £2 or £3 per day in the colder months. There is no charge during the warm peak season from July 1st – Aug 31st. All monies go to Friends of the Earth charity (Reg. No. 1012357).
