The Treshing Barn is an ideal place for a quiet stay. The welcome was warm and friendly and we were very comfortable throughout our long weekend there. All rooms are well-equipped and it was fun to see the hens and ducks strutting about.

Overall a relaxing week. Please be aware that the property is very isolated along very narrow & unkept roads. Cottage well equipped with everything you would need.
