This is a great house with beautiful gardens, and the location is amazing. The facilities within the house are excellent, the owners have thought of everything- in a very thoughtful way - if that makes sense - so there is no why is there no salt?? stress! We would truly love to return to the property!

What a lovely property! Lovely gardens, super house, cool hot tub! We had a lovely holiday and are already looking again for next year (just a shame the school hols are so expensive - outside our reach!) The house and facilities (and the welcome pack etc) were all just perfect. Best holiday home we have ever stayed in.

A beautiful place to stay. Lots of wonderful walks straight from the house. Hunters Inn pub a 3 minute walk from the house, serving fantastic food. National Trust Cafe 2 minutes walk from the house. Great snacks, ice cream, drinks and yummy ice creams for dogs!

An immaculate property with everything and more provided. Wonderful location, ideal for children, and realistic expectations for dogs (including his own shower). The best we have stayed in over 35 years of renting. Was sad to leave the wonderful garden and river behind.

This property has the wow factor as soon as you walk through the door , a wonderful flow into every room . Spacious and character in abundance. The 2 acres it sits in is stunning, and with a river that flows within the property, is so calming. There's so much to do with a huge hot tub that's to die for. Snooker table , games room and kota hut whichRead more we loved . The views from every window in the property blew me away , and one thing I desperately wanted to take home with me, Hide

A stunning house and gardens in a beautiful location. The house was luxurious and extremely well equipped. We felt very pampered. The hot tub was amazing with robes and slippers for every member of our party. Plenty of space for three generations and loads of activities to keep everyone happy.

The Barton was a fantastic house in which our family of 10 spent a week over Christmas. The rooms were very spacious with lots of added facilities like the hot tub, Kota House, playroom and dog shower. Absolutely ideal for the 3 generation get together. Location was very pretty too. We think our best Christmas holiday ever.
