  • "Such a lovely clean and cosy cottage."

    Perfect for the windy rainy weather we faced during our week’s stay. Comfortable beds, great heating system and magnificent views. One note of caution: there is a VERY steep and narrow drive upto the cottage - so if you are a nervous driver, think twice!

    Great communication with the owner and very helpful in returning keys that were left. Close to the town (via a steep hill) and close to local amenities. Would recommend a stay here

    Nice comfy beds as well :) Bendy approach to the property BUT if you follow the owners instructions on manoeuvring, its easy. Beautiful countryside and views.

  • "As a family of 10 and a dog, we found Shoebroad Barn a great stay."

    A beautiful clean, warm, accommodating cottage with lovely views. Kitchen well stocked with everything you would need. 5 bedrooms which was ideal for 6 adults and 4 grandsons. I would highly recommend this cottage. Only downside could be the steep incline for elderly people down into town.

  • "Beautiful home with beautiful views and property was lovely and clean."

    There was a large garden out the back for our family and dog. A lovely welcome pack received on our first day with local cakes, chocolate treats, milk, eggs. There was cleaning products available also. The property is at the top of a hill (quite steep!) But there's a few chairs on the way up if you need a breather! We managed fine (mid 40s with teenage children and a baby in a pram) and used to laugh about it! At the bottom of the hill, approx 2 mins walk is the local shops, bars and restaurants. We never had a bad meal! We met the gentleman who owns the property (sorry can't remember his name) who was so friendly. All the neighbours are absolute gems who can't do enough for you and give you advice if you require. They absolutely love telling you about their farm and engaging with you if you want to. Stuart (aka the animal whisperer) was loved by our dog also. He knows a good soul when he sees one! Ha ha. Lynn who owns the property was lovely and responded promptly to a few minor queries we had. All in all an amazing holiday, excellent facilities (everything was to hand for cooking, cleaning etc). Would definitely definitely return. Thanks so much to lynne, family and neighbours:)

  • "Myself and my family had a wonderful stay at Shoebroad Barn."

    It exceeded our expectations on all fronts; the property itself was spacious, modern and very clean upon arrival with a lovely gift of wine, biscuits and fresh eggs left for us! The property fulfilled our needs with a spacious garden and immaculate views to enjoy right on the doorstep. The garden is a bit of a sun trap as well which was perfect for sitting outside in the evenings. It is close to restaurants, pubs and a Morrisons (supermarket) was only a 10 minute walk away which was a pleasant surprise. There are also fantastic walking routes right outside the property. Overall, the stay was fantastic and I would recommend this property to any family or group wanting to get away!

  • "This is one of the best accommodation we have stayed in and will be spoilt for further breaks."

    There is ample space for everyone and the barn is well laid out and equipped with everything you need . The pictures don't do it justice , the views from the property are stunning and the enclosed back garden was ideal for our dog. Everybody we met was extremely friendly. Definitely book this property you won't be disappointed .

  • "We've just spent a week at Shoebroad Barn and cannot recommend it enough."

    The house is superbly laid out and equipped, it exceeded our expectations. The location is excellent, it feels completely rural and there is a wealth of wildlife on the doorstep, but the town is in walking distance (albeit down a very steep incline). Contact with owners was excellent and there was a fantastic welcome pack which we weren't expecting. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Shoebroad Barn, in fact we are already checking out dates for a return visit next year.
