  • "We had an amazing time at Ploony Barn."

    .. it was a beautiful home, extremely clean and comfortable, in beautiful surroundings! I personally loved that dogs weren't allowed upstairs or on the furniture so was like a real home from home for me!!!! Lindsey was super helpful and nothing was too much bother.... loved the welcoming touches too! Thank you

  • "Owing to the fact that we live in Wales this was our first break away for purely countryside views."

    Our home is very close to the sea. We stayed at Ploony Barn from 260424 until 030524 for our wedding anniversary and both mine and my wife’s birthdays. As soon as we saw the location of the barn we were taken aback it was and is beautiful. There was countryside along with sheep and cattle as far as we could see and the place picturesque and peaceful. The barn was amazing with everything that you would need from dishwasher to washing machine and whatever else you could think was there it was wanting for nothing. It was beautifully clean and extremely tidy. The owner Lindsay was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a couple of very minor queries that we asked Lindsay for her advice to which we received responses from her within minutes and these were helpful and very positive. Overall we had an amazing week which we enjoyed totally. The location and the barn were amazing. We would recommend Ploony Barn to anyone wishing to have a holiday in a totally exquisite place and location. We intend to return for another holiday in the not too distant future. Many Thanks Michelle and Paul Parsons

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, we really appreciate your kind words and are so pleased you enjoyed our wonderful countryside and barn conversion. We redo hope you return to Ploony again one day Many thanks Take care Lindsey and Darren. Property Owner

  • "This barn is situated in the most beautiful of settings."

    Fields, trees, and streams running alongside the barn are all very relaxing. However as it is stated as a dog friendly rental we were very disappointed on arrival to find the property is not, you are asked to keep dogs down stairs on a hard floor as not allowed on furniture or upstairs. Not relaxing for owner or pet. Perhaps provide throws as other establishments do. Take the dog bed as only comfort your fur baby will have. The bath was used on the day of arrival, which leaked through the ceiling into the downstairs area. This was not a new leak as the ceiling had previous water marks. On notifying the owner, we were asked 'well are you going to want to use it again?' We had to clean up water, place towels to catch water, and the owner did not come out till the next day. No apology given for inconvenience etc. Listing says hot tub as private however it faces the main lane giving access to other properties so felt exposed as cars and walkers going past. A privacy screen is definitely needed. Additional towels are recommended if using hot tub. Stair gate is a falling hazard as it sits on the bottom step and steps are deep and tall so effectively having to step down 2 steps at once. Garden very secure and fully enjoyed by our dog. My ratings are based on it being stated as a dog friendly establishment, if you have a working dog who is not used to its homly comforts then it may be a true statement.

    Thank you for your feedback We are really pleased to hear that you liked the location of the property but devastated to read the rest of your feedback. We do feel some of the comments are untrue and we have found them very hurtful You mentioned the leak from the bath on your first night. We can confirm that there had never been a leak from the bath before your stay. You called us on your first evening to report this and we were more than happy to come out to assist you straight away, as we would any guest, but you declined this offer and it was agreed we would come out at 10am the next morning, which we did, and rectified the issue We feel this is a dog friendly property and there is a section on the Sykes booking conditions that states that you must not allow pets on beds or on furniture within the property. We do also ask, to keep dogs downstairs as a courtesy as we have hard wood floors to ensure the cleanliness of the property. A recent guest who had a dog thanked us for asking guests to keep dogs downstairs The property is on a very quiet lane and therefore we do feel that the hot tub is private as some guests don't see anyone else all day We have found the feedback a hard read but are glad you stayed for the remaining 6 nights of your stay after the leak Property Owner

    The quality of the conversion was excellent. It was great because we were also able to borrow a high chair and a stairgate, and fire guard were provided. The laundry facilities in the utility proved to be very useful as we had rubbish weather. To top things off the owners were pleasant and helpful.

    The barn was welcoming on arrival with flowers and wine, there was clear instructions left on how to use the facilities as well as a wealth of information on local attractions. We found the barn was well equipped, a spacious utility room with washer and dryer an outside tap to hose down the dogs after a long walk, comfortable beds, reclining chairs a SMART tv and so much more. The Hot Tub was definantly a highlight private and not overlooked perfect for relaxing in of an evening. It was very peaceful and quiet, exactly what we wanted.
