About Stone Barrow Bunkhouse

Stay on England’s only natural World Heritage Site, The Golden Cap, in this restored military building.

Starting life as an MOD radar station, Stone Barrow Bunkhouse offers a remote hideaway for a group of eight. Walkers, activity groups or large families alike will delight over its location, high on Stonebarrow Hill overlooking Lyme Bay and the Golden Cap.

You’ll be in perfect walking territory, with 25 miles of footpaths through the countryside and headlands of the Golden Cap right from your doorstep. From here you’ll be able to loop onto the South West Coast Path and hike further along the Dorset coastline. Or stay local and relax on Charmouth’s beach, which is only a 30 minute walk downhill.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
