Customer Reviews

Tim Chatterton, November 2015

My wife and i booked this beautiful and homely barn for my daughters 21st birthday , as she requested that she would like somewhere secluded , with a hot tub . The barn was beyond our expectations as it was huge , warm ,clean and homely , with a great snooker / games room , lovely aga , a hot tub to relax in whenever we wanted and enough space to have a game of hide and seek if you wanted ! The bedrooms where all spacious and the bathrooms where clean and tidy . I would recommend this barn to any of my friends and colleagues without a second thought .
