    • “The Barn is an unusual property perfect for a large group of friends/family. The location is lovely as it's quiet but close to lots of attractions for a fun day out.”

    Mrs Poulson, Ilkley, October 2015

    • “The Barn was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.”

    Ms Rettie, Walton-on-Thames, October 2015

    • “The property and the garden were even better than the pre publicity. The size of the garden and its upkeep were suburb as was its privacy and security. We had five grandchildren under nine and they were all able to roam freely as the state of the external hedge/fence and main gates were sufficiently robust”

    Mr Norman, Hitchin, May 2015

    • “We liked the ambience of the Barn. It had such character!”

    Miss Brunt, Chipping Norton, January 2015

    • “The ambience of the Barn. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for 12 people.”

    Miss Brunt, Chipping Norton, January 2015

    • “The accommodation was beautiful and perfect for all the family to get together. There was pretty much everything we needed in the cottage.”

    Mrs Brown, Huddersfield, December 2014

    • “The upside down nature of the house, the open plan kitchen and dining room lounge were very attractive. We enjoyed the garden being totally enclosed and safe so the children could play out safely.”

    Mr Coveney, North Ferriby, August 2014
