This is one of the best properties we’ve ever rented. Obviously very newly refurbished with the best quality furnishings and fittings. Artwork throughout the cottage was great, a variety of artists and styles. The wild garden was a sight to behold. I’d highly recommend as a great place to visit for a retreat away from the hub bub. We were fortunate that adjoining cottage was empty so we had complete peace and quiet. A short walk to pub with excellent food and slightly longer walk to farm shop.

Past Customer,

Exquisite property! The proprietor has created both a welcoming and calm sense of space through the decor and the addition of little touches in each room. The bonus was having an area to sit out in each morning for breakfast and looking out onto a wild flower meadow and field. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rose Barn and hope to return next year.

Mrs Donna K,
