Stayed at the Barrows House for a few nights. The first surprise was that they upgraded my room. Great surprise as we checked in. The room was fantastic. The staff were extremely friendly and always going out of their way to make our stay memorable. Will be back. Dorset is a great location.

Returned to the Barrow's House for another perfect weekend! Such a nice time of the year to take advantage of the beautiful weather and comfortable Cardinals Retreat Suite #2. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the spacious porch with screened windows was a great space to relax with coffee in the morning. We had dinner in the bar each night...

My husband and I stayed at the Barrows House in Mockingbird Court room #5. The staff extremely welcoming ensuring that we knew all about the property's amenities - which include tennis courts and a pool plus area restaurants and things to do.

We were made so welcome, as was our 7 month old Golden Retreiver. The room was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good at the charming Inn just down the road. Would stay at Barrows House again.
