Mum, dad, baby and grandparents just spent a week here. The barn is extremely well equipped, with good quality towels, loo rolls and even handwash and washing machine liquid all provided. A gorgeous home made cake awaited us and two welcoming vases of flowers. Pat could not have been more helpful and kindly gave us a tour of the robot milking shed,Read more also letting us pet the new calves. Pub up the road does good food and is worth a visit. Definitely recommend Higher Barn. Hide

This was a lovely Barn, clean, well equiped, very comfortable. Sited on a working farm where the owner lives and are very friendly. Location is good for the sea and shopping and attractions.

lovely accommodation and a very friendly welcome, including fresh milk & a home baked cake to greet us on arrival. The tour of the farm was the highlight of the trip & after watching the robots milk the cows, my son has now decided he'd rather be a farmer than a fire engine when he grows up!

Wonderful accommodation with a thoughtful and welcoming host, but a little isolated.

The barn conversion had everything we wanted. The only down side was the number of flies but, being situated on a working dairy farm, this should be expected and did not spoil our holiday experience.

Fantastic holiday, my little 1 year old loved seeing the cows and cats every day. The barn has a lovely garden and also plenty of space inside incase of those rainy moments. Claire made some great recommendations of things to do or where to eat and also showed us the cows being milked, thank you. Lovely cake on arrival too! Thank you.

The cottage was beautifully done out and comfortable. Having a separate utility room and boot/coat area was great. It was within 30-50 minutes of everywhere we wanted to go in the week which is great with a toddler and meant we made the most of every day. There were plenty of towels, the bedrooms and main bathroom were spacious and the open plan grRead moreound floor was extremely comfortable. It definitely felt like a home away from home and we will definitely put it on our return list. Hide
