    Excellent holiday home. Beautifully spacious, clean and well-maintained and a generous welcome hamper - thank you. Everything needed for our group of 11 (and could accommodate more) in terms of space and in terms of practical things like crockery, amount and size of pans etc (we've stayed some places where this has not been the case!) Close to Blandford and multiple supermarkets and shops for convenience; nearby walks and the River Stour, plus plenty to do at home, play pool, air hockey, tennis or go in the hot tub. Outdoor pool not yet heated (due to ground temperature) and so not open for use during our February stay. Overall excellent accommodation with no issues, a beautiful home and a lovely holiday location.

    All was first class. A truly excellent weekend. It must be repeated before too long.

    Our party of 14 adults, celebrating a 40th birthday, all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the fantastic Downwood Vineyard. Communication with the owner and caretaker was clear, professional and friendly and they took care of everything for us. The property is beautiful, has plenty of space and each room is immaculate. The kitchen is well-equipped with a big fridge, wine fridge, and the all-important dishwasher! It was too cold to use the pool, but some of us made use of the hot tub which was lovely on a cold winter night! We had a local pizza delivery one night, and a delicious catered dinner another night (Brown Goose Catering). The games room was a huge hit with everyone, especially the air hockey and pool table. We would love to return one day!

    A beautiful house well maintained. Definitely worth considering for an extended family get-together.

    Because there were 15 of us for a long weekend the venue was great value; if there had been less of us we couldn’t of afforded it. Would love to book for a different event but out of my price league. However, we enjoyed it very much as a single experience and hope to do again with our group.

    Our party of 15 with ages ranging from 15 to 82 were very impressed with the quality of the furniture and fittings. We were all very happy with the excellent range of sports and games facilities. Our only problem was that our stay only lasted a weekend.

    Definitely not a cottage!!! Absolutely gorgeous house for a big family celebration. So much space both inside and out. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The games room kept the younger generation entertained for hours! Wonderful 😊

    Three generations of our family, 14 of us, plus two dogs, had a great weekend at Downwood. Beautiful big house, and very clean. We made use of the pool and hot tub even in November. All enjoyed our stay, and will definitely consider going back.

    We had a brilliant weeks holiday at downwood - the house and grounds are wonderful. Excellently equipped, clean, homely and comfortable. Plenty of room for 16 of us without getting under each other’s feet. The children loved the games room and pool. Good location for getting around Dorset. Blandford forum has all the necessary shops and supermarkets to make shopping easy. We didn’t want to leave and plan to return for our next family break.

    Downwood Vineyard is a large, well-equipped house best suited for large family groups. The house is well presented and facilities are extensive although the tennis court surface needs some improvement. The outside pool proved to be a hit and was warm even in late October, and the garden provides lots of space for children to play. The games room is also useful, especially in case of bad weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and thanks to Larissa and Mike for quickly helping with any issues.
