  • "Lovely property and location, a real gem."

    Everything you needed was available. Beds and bedding lovely and comfortable and clean, clean white fluffy towels were provided. Kitchen provided all we needed for catering for 5 and a dishwasher and washing machine were a nice addition. The tea/coffee/sugar/milk and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch, along with cleaning products and hand wash. The play barns were also great and kept all ages entertained. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Brilliant place to stay for all ages."

    Great facilities which are included in the price, e.g. pool table, air hockey, games arcade. Ideally the hot tub could be emptied and refilled with fresh water after every visit. But all in all would highly recommend booking this place, especially for families

  • "Our stay at The Granary exceeded our expectations."

    Wonderful welcome from Julie who also helpfully put away our food delivery due to our late arrival (bank holiday traffic!). Great accommodation, everything you could need, fresh eggs from the chickens and the hot tub was the icing on the cake. We will definitely be returning.

    There were many excellent facilities for children which we didn't need, we almost wished we had some kids to enjoy them - almost!

  • "This place is fantastic."

    Great position for visiting nearby places and the facilities are fantastic. Under floor heating means your never cold and the hot tub means your never stressed. The play barn, animals and absolutely everything was just superb and if we ever come back that way we will come back to these cottages !

  • "The Granary provides excellent accommodation in an ideal location for visiting lots of places."

    The three en suite bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the hot tub is an added bonus. The kitchen/living/diner area is spacious. The staff member we met, Julie was welcoming and helpful. The friendly dogs and cats and the fish pond behind the property were an added delight for the grandchildren. The play barn and playroom are very well equipped. Our only suggestion is to provide additional cooking utensils for example another frying pan and pan and plastic foodware for younger children
