Historical interest

Of historical interest, Barton Barn was at one time the barn belonging to Stafford house, a fine Tudor manor. 


The Barn sits between secluded cottage gardens in the centre of West Stafford, two miles east of Dorchester. Tucked away in the centre of the village, between the fine 15th century church and the celebrated Wise Man pub, the Barn's 3' thick walls and deep thatch provide superb insulation. 

This pretty village is set in a countryside of water meadows and trout streams. Beautiful country and riverside walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep. 

Dorchester offers extensive facilities, including inter-city train service to London (2 hrs 20). Weymouth (9 miles) offers sailing, other water sports, and cross-channel ferries. Came Down (4 miles) has an 18 hole golf course. Nearby trout fishing in the River Frome.
