"HOPE TO STAY AGAIN!!"
We were looking for a reasonably priced self catering holiday home for use over the Christmas week. After a good search I found Tidmoor Barn.
On arrival Sarah was waiting for us and was able to give us lots of information about the area and also gave us a tour of the house.
The bedrooms are spacious and the ground floor one is large enough to get a wheelchair round with ease. The upstairs double room is large and would easily accommodate a travel cot (folded in its bag in the room).
The wet room on the ground floor is lovely as is the upstairs bathroom. A shower head tap on the bath would make hair washing easier.
Both the ground floor and upstairs lounges were comfortable.
The kitchen is ok, I was glad we were spending Christmas day with family in weymouth as there would be little room to cook anything much more than a simple meal. Could do with a few more glasses too.
Parking was reasonably easy and felt very secure behind the electric gates.
The view was lovely, across fields to the sea which was VERY lively that week. .
As there are facilities for children (travel cots and a high chair) I would have liked to have seen gates at the top and bottom of the stairs, perhaps wooden ones which would match the staircase. Don't forget your towels as these are available at an extra cost
It was a lovely place to stay, well positioned, comfortable and worthy of a second visit.

"What a gem Tidmoor Barn is, lovely, clean and comfortable barn, well situated for exploring Dorset"
We stayed 9th Aug-16th Aug, two adults and two children (7&9). From our arrival Sarah made us all feel very welcome and was extremely helpful with local knowledge and tips for getting around Weymouth area. Lots of information in the barn regarding tourist activities, places to eat etc. The barn is well situated just a few minutes from Weymouth town centre and has the luxury of being far enough out of the town to enjoy coastal walks. Tidmoor is a great sized barn, the living/dining, sleeping rooms were very spacious, the children especially loved the huge shower/wet room. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for your stay. The views from the upstairs living room over Chesil beach and the nature reserve are wonderful. Great little private garden for the children to play in and we ate outside on the patio area when we could. The washing machine and outside rotary came in extremely handy during our stay. I would highly recommend the barn to anyone wanting all the home comforts at a very affordable price in a lovely quiet, but accessible area of Weymouth. We would definitely stay again.

"The Stables property met our every needs"
We took my elderly mum,who has mobility problems, with us. The Stables were very well suited to all our needs and she was able to move around the ground floor, bathroom & bedroom with ease. The bathrooms & kitchen were excellent & very well fitted out.
Sarah was an excellent host. We have booked again for next year.
