Cant fault the location its beautiful, a well presented cosy cottage, but there should be more little touches we werent left with much basics. Its rather pricey for just 2 nights as your paying the 3 night premium - but we had a lovely honeymoon thank you

The Barn is very private indeed and peacefully situated. Having a warm welcoming pub within walking distance is an excellent positive. The Barn is well appointed with furniture and appliances but as its dog friendly the soft furnishings needed another sweep with the hoover (wont bother you if you have dogs anyway). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay anRead mored would recommend it but the experience could go up to the next level via a small number of very cheap improvements to give it a personal touch. Hide
