    The Threshing Barn is beautifully and tastefully appointed, very modern, and with everything required for a self- catering holiday, with all modern cooking and cleaning conveniences. Though the telephone signal is poor, due to the farms location nesting between rolling hills, WiFi is fine. The bonus is a very modern Hot Tub that is diligently maintained. Daily contact, if required, with a lady, Ellie was available. she was very friendly and helpful

    The finish of the kitchen is fabulous and the layout was ideal for the dog . The bi -folds offer that inside /outside feel which is perfect. It’s light and airy even when the weather is grey . You need to go short drives to amenities , beaches , walks this is the only consideration when booking. The hot tub and barbecue area and the whole barn was enjoyed by the whole family.
