The lanes are narrow so walking can be difficult.. The Barn is perfectly safe for dogs with gated parking and secure garden... highly recommend the roast at the village pub. (But dont go to late they sell out) .. the farm shop sells everything so no need to travel to supermarkets...

Quince Barn is ideally situated for a quiet holiday in the countryside but not far from lots of visitor attractions. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would recommend to all. The barn is well equipped, very warm and clean. The night skies were unbelievable with no light pollution on a clear starry night.
