"It's like a slice of hidden paradise. So private and secluded, we felt like lord and lady of the manor. Hardys Monument at sunset with a glass of wine is fabulous"

8 Gerry & Alla - Derbyshire

"What an amazing place. we were fortunate enough to see deer, badgers and lots of wonderful local wildlife. We had some amazing local walks also. With so much to do we needed more time. We'll be back next year to explore this idyllic location further. Thank you."





The location of Lower Barn's Holiday Cottage is in Matrinstown, Dorset. Approx 5 miles from the expanse of Chesil Beach, 10 miles from Weymouth, Bridport and 5 miles outside the town of Dorchester.  Only Half a mile from Hardy’s monument in an area of outstanding beauty.

This is a walkers paradise and a true getaway, as the barn is nestled amongst over 100 acres of private farmland below Hardys monument.

The quiet, secluded nature of these surroundings make it a perfect holiday location within easy reach of local attractions and amenities.
