"Amazing barn, everything you need, lovely location."

I travelled to Lynchett Chase Barn for a week with 6 adults and 3 young children under 3 in October 2011. The barn was breathtakingly beautiful with character and flair. Everything was clean and well presented and literally everything you needed for a holiday was there. The lady that manages the barn was extremely helpful and friendly and met us to give us the keys within 5 minutes of us arriving. The bedrooms were large and spacious and the bathrooms very up to date and modern. The kitchen is just like the picture- amazing!!!!!! The barn has underfloor heating which is lovely, especially for crawling babies and the log fire at night just topped of the character of the barn. For the children it was great as we kind of hid their toys in the conservatory! A good travel cot and highchair were provded for us which is really helpful. There was free access to wi-fi and SKY tv (basic package) in the barn which was an added bonus as the phone signal was not good there. They provide board games and thousands of leaflets about things to do! The barn is within an hour of some beautiful locations such as Weymouth, Bournemouth, Swanage (steam train is a must from Norden!) - we even went to the Outlet village at Street, Somerset! We took a few walks into the village of Maiden Newton and although small, some lovely things to view such as the church and station and a few shops too. Was a perfect location, amazing barn and would definiately recommend for a holiday!
