This is the second time we have stayed at Rookery Barn and we were not disappointed again . The location is excellent , layout really suitable for the whole family including our disabled daughter and the standard of the equipment is far better than one would expect in a holiday cottage .There is no doubt the best thing was the hot tub Great to relax in an evening with a drink in the plastic glasses !
