Cider Barn

Property Description

This converted old Cider Barn sits adjacent to The Mill and is situated at the edge of the property’s orchard and garden. Once used to house the apple press for making cider, the Cider Barn was connected to the Mill via a leather belt, driven by the waterwheel, which was used to prepare the apples for the press used in the cider making process.

    RENOVATED TO A HIGH STANDARD

    "We had a lovely stay in Cider Barn. The barn itself has been renovated to a high standard and had everything we needed. It is in a very tranquil setting and our daughter loved the expansive outdoor space alongside the barn, especially seeing the chickens and ducks and the neighbours’ pigs! The barn is also well placed to visit various beaches and tourist attractions without having to travel too far. Shaun was helpful and friendly, and we really appreciated him going the extra mile to post us back something we left behind in the barn after our stay. All in all, a great week away."

    IDYLLIC SETTING

    "Cider Barn was a fantastic property which provides all the home comforts you need in the idyllic setting of a farm and orchard. Both the Barn and The Mill are steeped with history and cleverly give that feeling but with the luxury of contemporary design."

    A FANTASTIC WEEK AT CIDER BARN

      Our stay at the Cider Barn was perfect. A well equipped, spotless cottage in a peaceful, pretty location. Shaun was a great host. I highly recommend a stay at the Cider Barn if you are looking for a break in Dorset.

      Cosy accommodation in a beautiful location. Situated next door to a working water mill, the Cider barn is well equipped. With direct access to countryside paths as well as a garden with zip line, the accommodation ticks all the boxes.
