It was an absolute joy to stay at The Stable within The Victorian Barn for 7 nights as it was SO quiet and peaceful with lots of fun things to keep the family entertained, such as Indoor Swimming Pool, Childrens Play Area and Activity Centre. Even though it was a massive positive being remote it is also a bit of a negative as the nearest village/puRead moreb is a 45 minute walk away, which is fine for adults but a bit of a struggle for little legs! Overall we had a wonderful holiday!! Hide

The Stable conservatory has a great view, looking out over the fields towards the hills. Sitting in the hot tub there with those amazing views was great and very relaxing. The kids loved the facilities: the indoor pool and indoor badminton and table tennis were particular favourites. We were a bit tight on space with 4 of us in The Stable and the kRead moreitchen and fridge are compact, but if you come expecting that and make the most of the facilities, youll have a great stay.

Would recommend the other properties on site but the stable could do with a new TV and shower updating .
