“Stunning barn, great location!”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just got back from a weeks visit to this stunning barn. I have to say it was absolutely perfect for us. We were a large group, 3 couples and 4 children but there was ample space as they provided us with two cots for the babies.

We had a warm welcome from Sarah who couldn't do enough for us.

The barn itself is decorated and furnished to a high standard and has a luxury feel to it. The grounds are large and completely secure.

Location wise, you couldn't be more central to a variety of different days out. We had days out at Monkey World, Subtropical gardens, Dorchester, the beach at Weymouth and Farmer Palmers which was great for the kids. All excellent and within approx 15-30 minutes drive.

In the village of Maiden Newton there is a chip shop, gazette shop/ cafe that we enjoyed a nice breakfast at on the morning of our arrival. There is also a good village shop and then a bit further on, a spa shop and the Chalk n Cheese pub with a great beer garden. There is a kids playground up near the village hall too within walking distance.

A few minutes drive out of the village there is another pub, Fox & hound. Great burgers, nice beer garden and a fantastic kids play area opposite the front of the pub.

If you need a super market, it's a short 15 min drive towards Dorchester. We found a Lidl and co-op. I'm sure there must be others too.

All in all, it's a stunning barn with loads to see and do. I hope to visit again in the not to distant future.

“Regular Visitor”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have stayed at the Barn several times. We have friends and relatives in the area and we have adopted Lynchett Chase Barn as our 'holiday home' (if only we could afford one!). The benefits of the place are:
- the grounds are spacious, private and safe, with plenty of parking at the front and a lawn at the back for the children to play in.
- great open plan living area with plenty of seats, dining area and kitchen which feels comfortable and communal.
- the bedrooms are comfortable and have that 'barn/countryside' feel.
- the facilities such as wifi, music system with built in speakers, television etc. are good.
- the overall quality of the environment is good quality.
- Gaynor, who looks after the barn, is very helpful.
Disadvantages?
- the internet is a bit slow (but common in this part of dorset).
- the television has sky but only the most basic of stations.
- the sound from the living area travels to the bedrooms easily so early risers (particularly children) will soon wake up those still in bed.
We love it there and plan to return there regularly.

“Great facilities in a great location”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The barn is exactly as it appears on the website. spacious clean, warm and with plenty of facilities for a full party. Rooms are all well-equipped and spacious and there is plenty of storage and parking space for several vehicles if needed. Lovely enclosed and safe garden for the kids and a useful outhouse with extra fridge space (definitely needed with a party of 7 as we were) along with a table tennis table. Location is good to explore the surrounding countryside and the village itself has a great convenience store, newsagent, pub and restaurant as well as the train station, all of which are within 5 - 10 mins walk. Very helpful management and very responsive to a couple of issues that came up during our visit. Fully recommended and hope to stay here once again.

The Barn is an extensive property with enough room to ensure that everyone has their own space. All the facilities are modern and easy to use.

“Great accommodation”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed here last week with four adults and our 23 month old grandson. We had a great welcome on arrival and the accommodation was exactly as described and as shown in the photographs. We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The accommodation was spacious. The garden was child safe and our grandson loved running round. The electric gates also ensured he could not get out on to the road. Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were supplied.
We found the location good there were plenty of places of interest to visit within a few miles. We visited Poole, Weymouth, Abbotsbury and Lyme Regis.
I would certainly recommend Lynchett Chase Barn to everyone.
