This is a fabulous barn conversion - the best we have ever stayed in - with a few little tweaks we could make this a permanent home. The hosts are great and their dogs are very friendly.

We stayed for 2 weeks and found the cottage very well equipped and comfortable. Clive and Linda were wonderful hosts and very informative about the local area.

The barn was a very relaxing place to stay and lovely owners. However Wifii did not work, one of the booking criteria, causing issues on gaining routes with our Tom Tom on excursions out. Having 2 dogs one under 1, we needed an enclosed garden which this clearly didn't have but partly my fault from not asking on booking. The property is not privateRead more and viewed by all who visit from the owners, workmen and campsite lodgers as their toilet and washing facilities are outside the barn door. Hide
