Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking for 5 star accommodation to host our yoga retreats.

After spending a lot of time searching the web viewing various possibilities, I stumbled across this beautiful barn.

The Old Granary provides us with luxury accommodation, excellent facilities, and beautiful surroundings to host our retreat.

We now host regular Retreats at The Old Granary, Karen has been a great help and nothing is too big or small.

I cannot recommend this venue highly enough!

The Old Granary is a fantastic, modern house with a cosy feel to it. There were 15 of us on a Hen Weekend and it was very spacious - the hot tub was a particular favourite.

I would recommend the yummy Butler for a bit of entertainment and eye candy. Beauty package, waitress service, food provided and DJ were all brilliant and made the Bride's weekend very special.

I couldn't have organised all of this without the help of the lovely owner Karen who advised me every step of the way. A huge thank you to you.
