Very attractive barn conversion in beautiful, unspoilt area.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Trish was there to meet us and very friendly and helpful. We were a party of 11 including 5 children and the building swallowed us up! Lots of space, didn't feel crowded, the kitchen was fully equipped and the dining table seated us all comfortably. The separate sitting area were useful when the children were watching TV or on their tablets so we could have conversation

Loved the Barn

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a property to accomodate a dozen people look no further.

Everyone in our party, ages 77 yrs to 22 months, loved the barn. Facilities location and the hosts were spot on.

Wonderful Weekend Break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of friends for two nights and the facilities were first class with great attention to detail. Everything is clean, fresh, modern, stylish with lots of space and different areas for groups to spread out or socialise as they wish. Perfect for group dining with generous kitchen and large table. Beds and sofas all really comfortable. Great area for walks and well positioned for exploring surrounding countryside. The accommodation is well managed, with excellent, welcoming customer service. Highly recommended.
