Fabulously clean with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Tim and Debbie couldn't have been more helpful without intruding. Everything mentioned in the brochure was there. We needed a bolt hole and it was perfect. Returning each day to look out over the rolling countryside from the seclusion of the barn. Next time we are down we'll certainly be booking in.
