    Robert ‐ 7 Oct 2019
    "Like nowhere else we've ever stayed, Arne Barn is charming, eccentric and very comfortable. It also benefits from being right on the edge of the RSPB nature reserve at Arne."
    Sandra ‐ 15 Sep 2019
    "If you love nature then this is the place for you"
    Christine ‐ 25 Aug 2019
    "Bunk bed photos were not included on website and would not be suitable for younger children.Large doors were not very secure. However it was a very generous spacious holiday house and the piano was a huge bonus for us. Being able to watch the deer was delightful."

    "Arne Barn is a charming, quirky holiday residence in the RSPB reserve at Arne. The location is idyllic and so peaceful. The barn is the last building at the end of a country lane. The walks from the barn are superb but if, like us, you have dogs then please note that the RSPB reserve and most of the beaches we visited require them to be on a lead at all times. Just a couple of niggles. The bed in the master bedroom is hard and uncomfortable despite being replaced since our visit two years’ ago. The access via the drive is now very overgrown and whilst easy to get in, it’s very tough reversing out. A bit of clearing, removal of hidden boulders and widening of the central parking area would make a big difference."

    "A warm and comfortable home. Gardens lovely proper English wild country gardens full of wild birds of many different species and views of the deer and stags in adjacent field make it a very unique place to stay . Near to coast and Wareham Forest which our dog loves. The shower in the on suite to main bedroom is excellent.However a second shower over the bath in the main bathroom would be very beneficial for a family ."

    "Arne Barn is in a delightful location, with easy journeys to beautiful parts of Dorset (Corfe Castle, Studland Beach, Swanage etc). The accommodation is lovely, with its semi wild garden giving lots of different places to sit and catch the sun and listen to nothing but bird song. Totally dog friendly enclosed garden which is great and stress fee! Loved sitting in the ‘sofa set ‘ and watching the deer in the field.The master bedroom was delightful with lovely bedding and the en-suite shower was great. The light curtains made sure we woke up early!(Take eye masks with you if you want a black out!) We also used the twin room which was very comfortable. Another shower in the property would probably be useful for a larger group, unless you like a bath! Lots of space in the house, and the sitting area was so comfy and cosy. Wish we knew how to play a piano ! We loved staying and felt so relaxed. Perfect place to stay and unwind, and the quirky touches added to the enjoyment! Would easily choose to stay again."

    "found the settees very uncomfortable otherwise brilliant"
    Katrien ‐ 14 Apr 2019
    "We had a fabulous time at Arne Barn. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. The decorative elements and natural materials make it a warm home. It was great to have a piano and a gorgeous garden. Arne Barn lies practically in an RSPB nature reserve with walking routes from the door step, an adventure playground next to the cows, a hide, a viewing point, a beach. We also made splendid walks a bit farther: around Studland, Acton and West Lulworth. Wareham is only 10 min. by car. There, we made a lovely kayak and canoe trip on the River Frome. Wareham's supermarket had everything we needed for our stay."
    Suzanne ‐ 7 Jan 2019
    "Just what the Dr ordered We all had a fabulous time the barn is very quirky and getting there was an Experiance but the whole week was magical We spent quality time with each other in the comfort of the barn and the enjoyable walks in the surrounding area"
    Jon ‐ 4 Nov 2018
    "Awesome place to hang out, especially in the colder/ darker months with the wood burner."
    Crewenna ‐ 3 Nov 2018
    "We really enjoyed our stay at Arne Barn. Having the RSPB reserve on our doorstep was fantastic for walks and runs, but only a short hop to Corfe and Wareham for supplies. The cafe at the reserve does breakfast which we didn't need but handy to know! The barn was very comfortable for us and there's plenty of space. We liked watching the birds come to the window feeder and the fact it was so quiet all around."
