A beautiful property that is light airy and spacious. Very comfortable and has everything you could want during your stay. Only thing we'd mention is that the one mile walk to the pub as advertised is along a winding unlit country road and is uphill all the way on the way home. You should definitely bring a good torch if you are planning a visit thRead moreere. Hide

The Barn was perfect for a couple wishing to get away from the restrictions of a hotel. This home from home was perfect for those who are self sufficient and appreciate the warmth of a home after a day of exploring. The hosts even threw in some complimentary items, which added a personal touch to the place. Amazing value for money and look forward Read moreto returning on subsequent holidays. Hide
