    Like nowhere else we've ever stayed, Arne Barn is charming, eccentric and very comfortable. It also benefits from being right on the edge of the RSPB nature reserve at Arne.

    Bunk bed photos were not included on website and would not be suitable for younger children. Large doors were not very secure. However it was a very generous spacious holiday house and the piano was a huge bonus for us. Being able to watch the deer was delightful.

    Arne Barn is a charming, quirky holiday residence in the RSPB reserve at Arne. The location is idyllic and so peaceful. The barn is the last building at the end of a country lane. The walks from the barn are superb but if, like us, you have dogs then please note that the RSPB reserve and most of the beaches we visited require them to be on a lead at all times. Just a couple of niggles. The bed in the master bedroom is hard and uncomfortable despite being replaced since our visit two years’ ago. The access via the drive is now very overgrown and whilst easy to get in, it’s very tough reversing out. A bit of clearing, removal of hidden boulders and widening of the central parking area would make a big difference.
