The Byre is in the grounds of Bulmoor Farmhouse, which dates from 1797 and is listed by English Heritage as a building of “Special Architectural and Historical Importance”.   The present owners, using traditional skills and materials, have painstakingly restored both buildings, and the...

This was a beautiful place to spend time relaxing, and enjoying the countryside. The service we got from the owners was second to none, we were made so welcome. The barn was extremely clean and comfortable. All you heard at night was the owl and all you could see was the stars, it was idyllic. Would certainly recommend it as...

Thanks so much for a lovely review. The setting is perfect for peace and tranquility, and enjoying nature.

About the neighbourhood
Many Bulmoor Farmhouse guests are happy to simply use he Byre as a country retreat, enjoying the relaxing ambience of the accommodation itself, and the tranquillity of its natural surroundings. But this is not to say that the local area does not have a wide enough variety of other options:

The coast is undoubtedly the major attraction, especially for children. The continually changing geology that led to its status as a World Heritage Site, from the spectacular red sandstone cliffs of the west, to the white chalk of the middle section and the fossil-bearing blue lais just beyond Lyme, has also produce a whole range of different beach types, which include the massive, 20km long, shingle bank that is Chesil Beach at its eastern extremity.

The most popular sandy beaches are to be found...
