    Lovely old house

    We were a party of five active adults, two couples and a single, all over sixty, who rented this lovely old house for a week in April 2018, luckily including the hottest 4 April days for decades. The house was ideal for us, substantial, spacious, well-equipped and comfortable, and located in a lovely area, with the Dorset coast including Poole and Weymouth, and beautiful and interesting towns like Sherborne within easy driving distance.

    The outlook from all the bedrooms was very attractive, two overlooking green fields with sheep and horses grazing. The gardens in Spring were particularly attractive and well-maintained, and made a pleasant place to wander or sit with early-evening drinks. The Londis convenience shop and the Post Office just a three-minute walk away were useful.

    The owner, Nicola was attentive and helpful, and after a very pleasant and relaxing week we were quite reluctant to leave, and have no hesitation in recommending the house to others.

    Amazing Farmhouse

    We have just retuned from a weeks holiday at this amazing farmhouse. We absolutely loved all the original features and in particular the aga in the kitchen. It was great always knowing that the kitchen was so cosy and warm . I also really enjoyed the benefits of the aga for cooking.

    The farmhouse was spotlessly clean and very comfortable throughout. Another bonus to this property is the extensive secure garden - it’s great for children and dogs. We also enjoyed making use of the bbq and outdoor table as well as the very comfortable recliner garden chairs.

    Gould’s Farmhouse is in a lovely little village with great walks for dogs from the doorstep. It’s a great location too for getting out and about and exploring the beautiful Dorset countryside and coastline.
    The staff in the local pub are very friendly and the food was nice.

    I would recommend staying in this lovely farmhouse. Nicola, the owner is most helpful and very welcoming. Arrival and departure is made very easy with the use of a key safe and very comprehensive instructions and directions from Nicola.

    We had a very enjoyable stay and we were very happy with our choice of holiday home for our week in Dorset.

    A very beautiful house with so much space inside and out

    I chose this house as my family were coming over from Australia.There were 8 of us that stayed here for a week.From the photos it looked like a house just right for all of us.I can honestly say it’s a very beautiful house with so much space inside and out.The living room was big enough for us all to relax in the evenings and the bedrooms were big and spacious.This lovely home was not only beautiful but it has a lift for people to get upstairs if needed.My Mum is 81 so it was perfect for her to be able to have access to upstairs.We played board games in the dining room and enjoyed cooking in the kitchen with a fabulous aga and a dishwasher to clean away the dishes.I cannot express enough how perfect this place is for a big family in the quietness of the countryside with The Royal Oak pub only a few minutes walk away.A lovely Sunday roast with a Sports Bar to watch the football.We all loved our stay here and would love to come back again one day.
    Kind Regards

    We were a party of 8, 6 adults, 2 teenagers, and a 6 month old baby,
    3 generations of my family.
    The house is very spacious,and has a real homely feel.
    It was perfect for my family, we need somewhere for us all to be together
    over Christmas.
    The kitchen was well equipped, I enjoyed cooking Christmas dinner on the
    There was more than enough room in the dining room for all of us including
    the highchair for the baby.
    The bedrooms were also a good size, with ensuite bathrooms. Toilets was
    a nice touch.
    The Pub in the village supplied us a take-away meal on our last night,
    nothing was too much trouble for them. I recommend it.
    The Jurassic coast is a short drive.
    Although the weather was awful, it rained every day. We still had a
    wonderful Christmas at the farmhouse.
    I would recommend the farmhouse
    I would like to thank Nicola for making our stay very enjoyable

    A gem of a house

    Three generations of our family enjoyed a wonderful time in this gem of a house set on the edge of a lovely village and surrounded by fields. A large garden and a spacious interior meant that our two small grandchildren didn’t run out of hiding places during our four night stay. A five minute walk takes you to the centre of the village where there is a General store, Post Office and the Royal Oak pub which serves great food, both to eat in or takeaway, and where the staff and locals are all friendly and welcoming. We loved chilling in the evening in front of the open hearth fire with a glass of wine, and being over the New Year period, the Christmas tree, mistletoe and holly decorations were an unexpected but joyful bonus. It goes without saying that we will be visiting again in the future.

    Brilliant House for all the Family

    We have just returned from a weeks stay at the farmhouse and I thoroughly enjoyed it. With two children under 3 and the in-laws, we found that there was more than enough room - in fact my eldest loved to play hide and seek both inside and out! It is perfectly situated for short drives to all the typical tourist attractions and if we were to return to the area for another holiday I would certainly look to stay at the farmhouse again!

    Large Suitably Designed Farmhouse

    Michael B
    Having read the very positive August review of the author and his family's experiences, we can identify with the comments made. Likewise, we were a family of three generations, aged from the late 60s to a 9 nine year old. It was so very nice to find a home which accommodated all 8 of us comfortably. We enjoyed a home cooked Christmas lunch in a wonderful dining room. Everything needed to facilitate the preparation of the food, it's consumption etc. was provided for. Ease of access to the home on arrival and immediate contact if required, to the Owner, Nicola, via phone were greatly appreciated. Thank you Nicola for allowing us to use your home over the Christmas period which enabled us, as a family to enjoy our time together.

    Gould's Farmhouse

    The Farmhouse was a lovely size and plenty of space for 8 people and a boisterous dog. Bedrooms all v comfy and nice to have 3 en-suites. Dining room was fab as was the kitchen facilities and the conservatory. Garden was lovely in the sun with plenty of room to eat out and the the kids to play. Farmhouse was easy to find and v clean and tidy on arrival. The Royal Oak in the village was walking distance and the food there was great and good value. Play area in the beer garden also - great for small kids. Easy access from here to all the lovely beaches along the Jurassic coast as well as National Trust places and other local museums e.g. Tanks and Monkey world! Something for everyone and would recommend to families and friends.

    Excellent Accommodation

    We had a wonderful week along with 2 children and 4 grandchildren in this lovely old farmhouse in such a beautiful, old, quiet, traditional and unspoilt village in a great location in the middle of Dorset.
    The accommodation was excellent with many original features to remind us of what it must have been like living in a house like this in previous centuries.
    The large garden was a great bonus, particularly for the grandchildren, who also benefitted from the village hall children’s’ play a short walk away from the cottage.
    We also would highly recommend the village pub-The Royal Oak-whose garden area is large and well-equipped.
    There is also a village shop and a Post Office within easy walking distance as well as a beautiful old church.
    The coast is easily accessible and there are several National Trust and other properties only a short drive away.
    We highly recommend this property for a memorable stay.
