A perfect location for getting away from it all. Peace and quiet with great scenery from the cottage. Just the sheep and the birds to keep you company. Accommodation is very comfortable with some great local cuisine. We were made to feel very welcome.

The grounds to which the barn is situated are fantastic and totally peaceful it's as if you have you're own piece of hillside where the only sound is birdsong. Perfect!

Reviewed by Jane, 2nd February 2018

It was absolutely wonderful. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and a log fire. We were told not to hesitate to contact them during the weekend if there was anything we needed. Always good to know. The barn is decorated beautifully throughout and you immediately feels relaxed and on holiday. Would love to return one day.

What a wonderful stay we had over the festive period myself and family were so overwhelmed by how perfect the converted barn looked, greeted by a very helpful hostess called Emily who gave us all the information we needed to know. It was a wonderful feeling waking up to such beautiful scenery everyday. Highly recommend the local restaurant called tRead morehe Bridge Inn, food was rather scrumptious, staff were very friendly and they welcome dogs. Well be returning soon X Hide
