“Fabulous cottage and barn in an idyllic Dorset village”
Reviewed 13 August 2020 for a stay in July 2020

Netherway Farmhouse and beautifully restored Barn offered our family a wonderful holiday post lockdown. It had all the facilities and space we needed with a beautiful garden at the back where we were able to play croquet and enjoy eating outside. The owners were so welcoming and we would definitely recommend. The village is idyllic. We shall be returning!

Thank you very much for such a positive review of Netherway Farmhouse and Barn. The project to renovate the barn has certainly taken some time to complete but we are really pleased to hear that it can now be enjoyed alongside the Farmhouse for larger family gatherings. Great to hear that you made good use of the BBQ and Pizza oven in the garden too. We look forward to seeing you again some time!
Best wishes
Corie and Dave

“Two homes in one delightful garden in the heart of endless breathtaking walking country!”
Reviewed 4 May 2020 for a stay in March 2020

A family of 4 (of which 2 in their late teens) plus Beagle, had the great fortune to be able to stay in Netherway Farmhouse AND Netherway Barn (elegantly converted and decorated 2 bedroomed barn with mod cons) during the first 6 weeks of the COVID lockdown. Fully stocked in terms of practical bits and bobs (eg white goods, Belling oven, wood burners, big screen TV, ) then homely touches like well stocked book shelf and DVD & games draw, a pantry, quality linen, modern bathrooms and a lovely garden. The new barn is light and spacious with easy access to both front and back garden - a true delight. Both houses together would make an ideal location for big family celebrations as the dining room in the Farmhouse (though a tad narrow) seats 12. The village itself is a friendly community with a top shop and pub (serving the best veggie burgers and a decent traditional sunday roast - take out only during Covid). And then there is the WALKING - from the door - for miles.Just glorious. We walked every day and barely did the same walk twice. And to top it all, David and Corie are super helpful and efficient in responding to all queries - going more than the extra mile for every request! Highly recommended!

“Great place to spend the Christmas break”
Reviewed 5 January 2020 for a stay in December 2019

Just spent a fabulous week at Netherway for the Christmas holiday. Cottage is well equipped and for six of us we had loads of space to spread ourselves. Weather could have been kinder but we managed a few walks locally.
Corie and Dave are great hosts and so helpful.
Would thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage and it will be even better when the barn is finished!!

“Idyllic Cottage”
Reviewed 17 August 2019 for a stay in August 2019

This was our second stay at this beautiful cottage we had the upstairs attic room aswell this time as their was more of us this time, this can be booked if needed and what can I say absolutely beautiful lots of space simply charming lovely room.
Villagers are very friendly nice little pub the royal oak for food made us feel very welcome.Shop has all the essentials you need & more nice friendly staff.
Our older son is a keen photographer so he has loved the views in the village and around Dorset itself great walks for our dog.
The village is not far from some great sightseeing areas in Dorset & is nice to drive back after a busy day and relax & unwind in this cottage which has lots of space for all the family.
We have all enjoyed our holiday here again and will be booking again in the future looking forward to seeing the Barn conversion they are doing at the rear of the cottage for added extra space if needed or just a lovely time away for two.

Thank You Dave & Corie
See you both again soon.

“Quintessential English Cottage - Perfection!”
Reviewed 6 August 2019 for a stay in June 2019

We just completed our second visit to Netherway Farmhouse. It is located in a small and charming village. The property has all of the modern conveniences you can imagine, yet all of the charm of a 17th-century farmhouse.
The main living space is very comfortable and everything is updated. Since our last visit in 2017, there have been several incredible upgrades. The kitchen has been totally refitted and the Secret Garden is gorgeous! There is ample parking on the property and a newly renovated barn behind the main farmhouse. There are 3 spacious bedrooms on the second floor with a full bath including a bathtub. There is also an ensuite that can be booked separately on the top floor if you need accommodation for more guests. There is an extra cost for this area which is lovely and was added since our last trip.
We celebrated my father's 90th birthday there and found it to be the perfect place for a special celebration.
There is a lovely pub just a few doors down that serves very good food and beverage. The local residents are all so friendly and welcoming. There is also a small grocery down the street that has just about everything you can imagine including some local fare. This is a great location to explore all of Dorset with several towns close by.
The owners are fantastic and make you feel right at home. So much so that some of our relatives that live nearby have booked Netherway for Christmas holiday.
We hope to return someday to this very special and magical place. If you are looking for an authentic experience in Jolly ole England -- this is perfection!
