I felt completely zen staying here and I’m so gutted being home! The scenery is amazing and I loved watching wildlife and seeing the dogs!

    The strategically placed bird feeder attracted and we saw many garden birds, moorhens, ducks, a woodpecker, a kingfisher and a heron. Natalie and Sharon were fabulous hosts. The property is very secure with electric gates at the entrance.

    The Barn was high end and had everything we needed, particularly loved sitting out on the decking and watching the birds visiting the feeders, even saw the Kingfisher on the pond (more like a lake) it was so relaxing and it was exactly what 2 old friends needed for a get together. Natalie was lovely, introduced herself and recommended a pub for Sunday lunch which was a super choice. Their dogs came & said hello, beautiful dogs and very friendly but don’t feed them as they get too fat

  • "All I can say is wow."

    We had a fabulous week at The Barn. The accommodation had everything you could ask for, the beds were comfy and a lovely large shower. But for us it was also the setting, views and wildlife that made the week. A fabulous large deck overlooking the pool meant we could daily watch the heron, ducks, moorhens, dragonflies, birds and otter but on the last day to our delight the deer came to the waters edge to drink! Also great location for visiting local attractions. Thank you Natalie you were a brilliant hostess, it was lovely to meet you and we can't wait to come back x

    It’s pleasing to hear you had a super time staying here with us, the entertainment our birds and animals put on, is purely by chance, so you were very lucky to see them all out to play! The majestic deer come each day if you’re up early enough and quiet enough, as you clearly were. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and it was lovely to meet you both too.

    The scones, jam and cream were a lovely surprise and much appreciated - also plenty of loo rolls ( a sign of generosity that many other places lack, weirdly ). There was some faint noise from next door but as it's a semi, that's to be allowed for : it wasn't excessive. I loved watching the birds on the feeders and around the property - such a wonderful, peaceful atmosphere. I suspect we'll be back...

  • "Excellent chalet in really secluded spot overlooking the small lake."

    We were just the 2 of us as next door were also just a couple. So we enjoyed the solitude. Just be aware that the 2 chalets are one wooden building, so noisy neighbours could be a disadvantage as highlighted by other reviews. Natalie was a gracious host and made us very welcome. Google maps and what3words put the chalets in the middle of the field opposite. ///edgy.scorched.porch/// on What3words will take you to the entrance gate.

    Superb feedback and we would like to thank you for popping in the what3words, which takes you to our entrance gates- it’s most helpful indeed!

  • "Comfortable, modern cottage with beautiful deck overlooking the lake."

    Slightly less space than we expected from the listing and the relatively high price compared to places we have stayed previously i.e. no family bathroom and living space smaller than it seemed from the photos. We think it should be made clearer from the listing that the cottage is one of two neighbouring properties that share the deck; also that the washing/drying facilities are shared with the neighbours. But we had a pleasant stay, thank you.

  • "The pictures didn’t really do justice to the cottage."

    It could have been called “Birdsong” rather than “The Barn”, as it is the first thing you hear when you wake up and continues in the background all day. We’ve stayed in quality cottages before, and at others the main failing is very limited places to put your clothes. Here both bedrooms were well equipped for storage. The en-suites both had excellent rainfall showers, and the living/dining/kitchen area was well furnished including an Alexa and the TV bracket meant you could comfortably watch it from anywhere in the room. The deck is a wonderful place to unwind.

    Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and it's great to hear all of your wonderful comments. We are thrilled you had catered for your every need. We hope you'll return one day for another holiday to Mill Pond Barns, Natalie. Property Owner
