As the name suggests this is the barn that originally stored the hay grown in the surrounding fields and fed to the animals. It retains many of its original features.
It is a thatched two storey barn with a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The spacious beamed living area has comfortable leather sofas and armchairs, well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and dining area. The very large dining table with 7 chairs can be added to if required. There are two bedrooms downstairs one with a double bed and one with a cosy single. Upstairs there is a newly fitted family bathroom with large walk in shower, two further bedrooms, one with large bunk beds and a twin bedded room with a quirky ensuite bathroom with a bath. Please note the twin room has been improved by boarding the back area (gallery) that previously allowed light and sound in from the lounge.
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.
