“Perfect tranquil location for exploring beaches or towns” We had a short break (Thursday to Sunday) to make the most of a non school day on the Friday. For us it was a great location as not too far from home but perfectly placed for us to explore more southerly areas of the South West. The Barn is beautifully decorated, excellently equipped and in a quiet village/hamlet just off the main road out of Yeovil so not at all far away from "civilisation" or access to a major route for exploring the area further. Our two teenagers (and their Dad!) appreciated the free/unlimited wifi access and I enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard reading my book in the early evening sun. We all enjoyed relaxing in the Barn after our days out which included - Weymouth; Burton Bradstock (The Hive Beach café is a must!); Sherborne and Lyme Regis. We agreed that this is a property we would love to return to again.

“HEAVEN!” My husband and I had no idea what part of the country we wanted to spend a week in when searching for our ideal property. We had certain ideas about what we wanted the property to look like and what features it had inside. We also wanted to take one of our dogs and so we needed somewhere that was dog friendly with outside fenced in garden area and a place where you could walk for miles in the unspoiled countryside. We also had a price in mind like many do when choosing a place to stay. BINGO........up popped Roe Barn and we did not hesitate to book. It had everything we were looking for and the reviews were excellent. Communication prior to holiday was excellent. On arrival, we were greeted with homemade mince pies and the Barn had a few decorations to remind us of Christmas which was lovely. Lisa, the owner, popped over to introduce herself after about an hour of being there and explained everything we needed to know. She was extremely helpful and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.....even when we had to knock on their door when some of the electrics went; she came straight over and sorted it for us immediately. The garden is absolutely huge with loads of space for our dog and there is also a gate in the garden which leads to the owners paddock area where we were free to go and play with our dog Benson. The property was outstandingly clean with excellent decor and all mod cons that you could wish for.....the endless supply of logs is also a bonus as a lot of places charge a minimum of £5 per basket, although the barn was so warm with its under floor heating, we did not need the fire much! The only complaints I can find about our stay here was the weather and the fact that it is not nearer to home so we could go more often! Unfortunately, these were beyond Alistair's and Lisa's control! The only two minor negative comments I have is that the TV in the lounge was rather small for such a good size property as most of us are now used to at least 32" TV's if not bigger, but having sky was a bonus, although I wasn't used to not being able to pause live TV, especially when I had to hold off from running to the bathroom until the adverts of the x factor live final!!! In all honesty, we did not go there to watch TV but because we had a lot of bad weather, we watched a bit more than we planned and so it would have been nice to have a bigger TV. The other comment was that I would have liked to have slept in the beautiful almost hideaway bedroom upstairs but the bed was extremely small compared to the one downstairs and so we opted for the larger bed. However, this room is just as nice so don't let that put you off! This place is a must and i cannot recommend it enough. Everything you could wish for and a bit extra, all for a really good price. We will definitely be returning in the very near future and I wouldn't even bother looking for anywhere else.
