A wonderful find in a beautiful setting. Decor and furnishings were to a very high standard and we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts, Abi and Mike. Loads of gorgeous walks and places to visit- walking distance from the Tank Museum and good eating places nearby. Our dog didnt want to leave and neither did we! Planning a revisit next year.

We spent a delightfully peaceful and comfortable week in Abi and Mike's holiday home. Little Farm Barn is beautifully furnished and the surroundings are inspiring and full of interesting wildlife and easy country walks. There are lots of things to do in this lovely part of Dorset, and many good pubs and restaurants to be enjoyed.
