This is such a peaceful place, beautiful countryside all around. Great if you want a hide-away. We enjoyed the comforts of the barn, open plan downstairs with a funky kitchen / dining area and lounge. Sitting on the sun loungers watching barn swallows (& mystery bird of prey) was a pleasure every evening, whilst waiting for tasty BBQ.
