Brookland Barn is the perfect cottage for a family stay. The lovely market towns of Blandford and Shaftesbury are very close by, and the countryside is just stunning.

A good base for discovering the area around Shaftesbury and Salisbury. A true retreat of quiet.

A fabulous cottage. Light, airy and spacious. Each room was really well equipped and very, very clean. The delicious baked cake was a fabulous touch.
I would thoroughly recommend it.
Mrs Williams February 2017
Brookland Barn is an exceptional, secluded property. We unwound there, away from the busy-ness of day to day life. It is well linked to many things; we spent a day at the spa, a day at Barrington Court (NT property), and another day exploring Corfe and Swanage. Shaftesbury is just a short drive away - a beautiful old town, steeped in history and overlooking glorious countryside. The barn provided more than just a base - it was a treat in itself to reside there. The owners introduced themselves, then let us be. Perfect.
Mrs Roden November 2016
Wonderful comfort within glorious countryside. A modt outstanding property.
Mr Little October 2016
We had to come back to this creme-de-la-creme classic. It ticks all the boxes and all are five star. We especially appreciated the quiet. It is not near a noisy road nor under a flight path, so for perfect peace we had just to disconnected the clock. The quiet of the summer house has only the song of the birds to disturb it; the perfect retreat.
Mrs Janes September 2016
Absolutely perfect place to stay , everything possible had been done to make holiday enjoyable . Surroundings peaceful , and loved watching the Squirrels and horses .
Mrs Rigelsford September 2016
We had a fabulous week in this fantastic barn conversion, in a beautiful setting. Definately the best Classic Cottage we have stayed in, amazing attention to detail. We certainly hope to return.
Mrs Palmer September 2016
A beautiful cottage -a stunning comversion, with really friendly, pleasant owners who will go above and beyond to make your stay a great one! The perfect place from which to explore the treasures of Dorset.
Mrs Andrews June 2016
Very welcoming hosts who have put a lot of thought into making the property a success.
Mr Little May 2016
As Beethoven is to classical music, so Brookland Barn is to classic cottages. It is the best we have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. It's not the holiday cottage, but, the practical and tasteful touches that the owners apply that make the stay so relaxed: Central heating that works well and is controlled from a single dial, cutlery knives that are actually sharp, linen presented as in a grand hotel are but a few. They can take credit for the ivy clad tree 6' from the kitchen window and some, perhaps, for the spotted flycatcher that had its nest there.
Mrs Power March 2016
We had a very pleasant Easter family break in this lovely barn - plenty to do in the local area, and the wifi came in handy when the weather was horrid!
