About The Victorian Barn

Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic break, a family or a large group of friends planning a reunion, The Victorian Barn provides the perfect rural retreat and sits within extensive grounds, amidst Dorset's glorious rolling hills.

With an extensive choice of cottages, lodges and apartments, The Victorian Barn has wide appeal and is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful pastoral landscape of Thomas Hardy country. Family run, each holiday home offers Four Star self-catering with excellent on-site facilities including an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, gym for those who like to keep fit, games room, outdoor play areas and fishing lakes. There is super-fast internet access and plenty of space inside and out to make every season comfortable and enjoyable.

Spend your days relaxing amongst Dorset's beautiful landscape, coarse fishing on one of the three lakes or exploring the myriad of footpaths, byways and leafy lanes that provide endless opportunities for walkers and cyclists.

The area offers many attractions for day trips out. The World Heritage Jurassic coast is a must to visit and only half an hour away by car with some of the country's most iconic beaches including Chesil Beach and Lulworth Cove. Enjoy a day of traditional seaside fun at Weymouth (twenty miles), or visit the county town of Dorchester (fourteen miles) with its beautiful gardens, riverside walks, shops and great eateries. The beautiful market town of Sherborne is only twelve miles way, Blandford Forum with its fine selection of galleries, shops and museums is eight miles and the pretty market town of Sturminster Newton is only four miles and a jewel in the Blackmore Vale crown.

For the younger ones, a trip to Monkey World at Wareham is sure to be a holiday highlight and the whole family will enjoy The Tank Museum at Bovington and Haynes Motor Museum in Yeovil.
