Previous visitors' comments about Middle Barn:
The barn was immaculate and in a perfect condition. The location was ideal, no neighbours, beautiful views and only 5 mins from the town. It was within easy reach to other towns, great for dog walking and the dog run in the garden was a great feature!

Peace and quiet for the whole week. We felt safe in the property and loved coming back their to relax after a day of sightseeing.
Mr Gunter, Cwmbran, February 2013
What a wonderful week, they really went the extra mile. There was a Christmas Tree and a gift for us. Wine in the fridge on arrival. They had supplied lots of extras such as washing up gloves, soaps, coffee, sugar etc. It really felt like we were staying at a family members home rather than a holiday cottage.
Mrs Hunt, Chessington, December 2012
This is then third time we have stayed at Middle Barn this year. The property is exceptionally comfortable, we get a better nights sleep there than we do at home. It is very warm and comfortable in the winter months and the views are stunning. The owners are instantly on hand if there are any problems. We cannot fault anything.
