Previous visitors' comments about The Milking Barn:
The location was excellent for touring. The property was well furnished and very comfortable and the owners unobtrusive but friendly and helpful. We all felt at home and were sad when our holiday was over.
Mrs Wright, Walsall, September 2012
A great location with lots to do. We liked the fact that there were maps and leaflets available about the area. A lovely cottage - we particularly liked the fire, the comfy sofas and the WiFi.

Very peaceful and tranquil location. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, lovely people.
