    This barn rental was not our first choice. The owner of our original booking 'pulled the plug' a week before our arrival date. Sykes reacted quickly and within a couple of hours we agreed the barn alternative. This was unexpectedly good service. The Long Barn is tastefully furnished. It was very clean and the bed linen first class. It lacks a discrete shower and the bath tub, although equipped with shower taps, does not have a shower curtain or similar splash protection. The barn is not suitable for anyone with an infirmity owing to the spiral steel staircase. The kitchen is well equipped but lacks a dishwasher. We were impressed by the coffee maker and the range of coffee cartouches' supplied FOC. In addition and not often found in rentals was a good supply of toilet and kitchen paper plus cleaning materials and cloths. We stayed in the barn during the second week of November 2017. The main ground floor room and kitchen were cold despite increasing the electric radiator temperatures. The bedrooms are however warm and cosy. The owner is charming and did his best to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
