Absolute gem of a holiday barn

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Christmas. The barn is lovely, beautifully presented, very well equpped and really comfortable. What makes it special Is the thoughtfulness of Pam and John (owners)... we arrived to find a Christmas tree and lights all set up and other practical touches - sellotape, cooking foil, kitchen supplies and decent equipment for cooking. Great location, great stay, great owners - thank you both, we’d love to visit again.

a creative charming peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay in the artistic artisan building of artist Pam and wood designer John.

The sun just drenched through the windows with views across the fields. The beautiful painting of Pam's combined with the detailed use of wood in the building were the foundations for making us feel at home. Add white crisp sheets, Yummy home made bread, a smiley welcome, and great conversation. We are coming back.......

Great place in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay over the warm bank holiday weekend so fully enjoyed the decking area. The property has everything you need and more! Pam and John were great hosts and had left treats and toys for our children to play with. I would certainly recommend a stay here

The property was perfect for us and our little boy

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend visiting local towns and villages and the cottage was a great place to stay, with real thought put into the layout, furnishings and equipment e.g. in the kitchen. The owners were very welcoming too.

Pam & John(and their puppy) are really great hosts, we felt welcomed when we just arrived, everything in or out the house are beautiful. They took us a little but unique local tour, very impressive. We had a wonderful stay, thank the hosts.
