We hired the Dragonfly 2 bed cottage for three nights over the christmas period. We arrived a little bit early and rang Tim the owner who said it wasnt a problem. Directions to pick up the keys were clear and simple. We then followed Beverley to the Barn and what a fantastic location, slap bang in the middle of the countryside.

The Barn is decorated to a high standard with all mod cons and has a homely feel to it.

Woke up early the following morning to the view of the trout fishery and surrounding countryside.

Great Barn/cottage would highly recommend.
