Nice place! Lounge is the best feature - comfortable chairs, rugs to warm your toes, a nice fire with a small supply of firewood. Good value overall.

Mr Poltawski, Exeter, February 2014

Loved the location and the cottage.

Ms Kinnard, Sudbury, September 2013

This cottage was exactly what we we had been told - everything was perfect although our holiday was anything but relaxing it was great to come home to the cottage after a complete and full day sightseeing to relax. What a great place; would recommend to everybody!

Mr Barnes, Camrose, May 2013

We loved the cosiness of the Old Barn, and the location. Everything was clean and tidy. Would recommend anyone to go for a break. Lovely.
