The property is wonderful. Really well presented and looked after with a great mix of traditional and modern furniture, fixtures and fittings. Loved the outdoor area with barbecue, the wonderful long dining table and the cuts mezzanine level as a secondary sitting area. The owner was a delight to deal with. Friendly, helpful and laid back. Just what you need. She even allowed us to check in a little a early and leave a little later. Much appreciated. We would definitely return here.Mr R Atkinson - 20th April 2017
The Barn was beautiful and spacious. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. We loved seeing the Barn Owl every morning and evening and although they're a problem, rabbits and hares provided entertainment. We also saw deer in the grounds and bats at dusk. The dark sky at night perfect for star gazing. Magical.Mrs Oldfield - 10th April 2017
We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas in this very spacious and warm barn. The owners were very helpful and friendly.Mr Peter Tickle - 10th January 2017
