Thank you for the most amazing place to stay, we all relaxed and everyone enjoyed the lovely area. The boys are now table tennis champions!
We have had the most amazing stay at the Great Barn! The location is the most beautiful place and the facilities for Albert have been perfect, he has lovely playing outside and seeing the ducks! The beaches are all fantastic for a toddler to experience the sea properly for the first time too! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, we will definitely be coming back soon!
Beautiful location – we a had a lovely few days. The football pitch was a great success! Dogs loved the field. Very comfortable and friendly.
A wonderfully quiet and relaxing place to stay, eat, drink and walk, despite the weather! Thank you
We spent our Christmas Holiday at the Great Barn, Scoles Manor and had a fantastic time!! Our group consisted of 5 adults and the layout with 3 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms was perfect. The setting was beautiful with panoramic views that included Corfe Castle and the surrounding area. We loved the rustic feel of the building and the modern appliances were great! (We were thankful for the black book with instructions on how to use the appliances as they were quite modern!) When we arrived our hosts had decorated the great room for the holidays with fresh holly and crocheted bells! They also invited us to join a village caroling held on the property during our stay! One of our favorite parts of the stay was the resident Indian Racing Ducks!! They were quite personable and so fun to watch! Tracy at the Corfe and Purbeck Holidays office was very helpful throughout the booking process, answering our questions promptly. During our stay our plans changed allowing us to possibly stay an extra night. She was great and worked with us to make it happen! It was a perfect holiday for our family and we would definitely stay again if the opportunity arises!
We have had a lovely stay here at The Great Barn. It's very centrally situated and we have had many beautiful days out. The facilities in the property are great, we made a few meals and found the crockery to a high standard. The dogs have loved the space and overall we have thoroughly enjoyed our time.
I loved staying at this place, it’s beautiful, one of the best views ever. The barns are so well designed and kitted out and the general atmosphere of the whole complex is so relaxed and welcoming. This was our second time and we would come again in a heartbeat. Thanks.
Such a wonderful stay, beautiful barn and surroundings. Charlie our dog loved exploring the fields and the children enjoyed playing cricket, table tennis and croquet! There is so much to do ...we shall be back. Thank you
Thank you for such a wonderful base to return to, we have had a fabulous time and the children have enjoyed exploring. Especially the visit to the orchard & pulling carrots. Thank you!
Thank you very much for the warm welcome – the flapjacks were loved by all five of us. We love the house, the space, and the views of Corfe Castle. The kids had lots of fun in the playground. We enjoyed the natural beautify of the Isle of Purbeck. A wonderful holiday.
Thank you for the most delightful stay in the beautiful barns. Your property and the area are gorgeous, we love it here. Until next time.
Lovely visit – thank you for the kind and friendly welcome. Flapjacks much appreciated and enjoyed!
Great week in fantastic accommodation. Kids loved all the facilities and spent hours playing with the other families’ children. Never tire of the views across to Corfe Castle and had some stunning sun-sets. Love to return one day as a truly special place!! Recommend walking to the viewpoint towards Kimmeridge.
Had a fabulous week here in this lovely barn – everything you need and high-quality refurbishment. Weather was great we visited Swanage, Studland and plenty of local walks with the dog. Kids don’t want to leave!
One of the best views on the Isle Of Purbeck. Facilities are excellent.
We had a great holiday here with two other couples and our boys. The Great Barn had a huge upstairs lounge, great for family time and meals around the dining table. The grounds are beautiful with a play park for the kids that's set in the trees just stunning. A great walking location too. We used it as a base to get around. It's a stones throw from Corfe Castle. Brilliant place for a holiday with kids and friends.
