    The barn was very spacious and ideal for a wet weekend with extended family. Lots of room, games, snooker and table tennis. Bedrooms were comfortable, clean and nice towels. Kitchen very well equipped and a nice welcome pack was appreciated. A cupboard with oil, vinegar, herbs, the sort of thing visitors leave behind,would have been an asset Our only complaint would be that for a cold and very wet weekend inNovember, the house was not quite warm enough! The thermostat locked on 19 degrees and in the same room as the log burning fire, meant that the heating switched off in the rest of the house, leaving bedrooms and other main rooms a little chilly.

    Had a great weekend, cottage had everything we needed, especially the indoor space. Owner was very friendly/helpful.

    We enjoyed a fabulous week at Higher Farm Barn. It allowed all three generations enough space to play, eat and relax in comfort with lovely surroundings. The one improvement I would like to see would be blackout curtains/blinds in three of the bedrooms.

    We had a great time. The house is perfectly set up for large families with a safe garden for children to enjoy. Hospitality was perfect with a welcoming hamper and owners on site for an issues/questions. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Beautiful barn conversion on the Dorset/Somerset border. Very comfortable and well equipped. The owners provided a welcome pack of coffee, tea, biscuits and milk which was a nice touch. They live across the garden, so are on hand if needed. The barn offers plenty of room for two families to get together and not fall over each other! Sherborne is less than 10 minutes away by car with all amenities on hand. Pleasant high street for shopping and a visit to Sherborne Abbey is a must - one of the most beautiful churches in the country. RNAS Yeovilton is about 20 minutes away by car and well worth a visit, especially if it's wet. Good walking, running and cycling from Higher Farm Barn's door. There is a train line fairly close by, but it's not that busy so the noise from it was not intrusive. This was our third visit to the Sherborne area and we love it - my brother and sister-in-law like it so much, they are considering moving to the area! If you've not visited this part of the country before, Higher Farm Barn is a great base to start to explore it. We hope to be back soon.
