  • "We had a lovely visit to the old barns."

    The barn was relaxing and just like a home from home with all the facilities we needed. We especially loved the hot tub, this was a great way to relax after a day exploring the area. We will definitely be returning

  • "The bedding and linen is of poor quality which spoils the cottage itself - in addition the heating and hot water are unpredictable again spoils things."

    Cutlery and cutting knives very poor quality. Location good, layout good she about the rest. Also dirty rims around hot tub. Could and should be so much better for the price.

  • "Lovely cottage, everything you needed to be comfortable for a break."

    Beds were comfy after a long day walking. Hot tub was great only thing to improve there would be a gate or curtain to cover the gap from the front door to hot tub, when over residents were in court yard they could look right at you. Only other thing that would improve the cottage would be a proper welcome leaflet with things like heating controls, as for is was to warm. Also about resetting the hot tub on rcd after powercut! Luckily I'm a sparky so checked it but other people might not think. But that's me being picky. Overall lovely place we will be back in 2022 if not before if we can get a weekend.

  • "Really good quality accommodation providing home from home comfort."

    Expensive perhaps but in this case you get what you pay for: beautifully converted barns: lovely spot: plenty of space and opportunity around for both being active and relaxing (including hot tub). A littler dark (but it's a barn conversion!). Would return and can certainly recommend. Owner is friendly, close by but totally unobtrusive. We had a great break with our autistic son.

  • "Accommodation was ok."

    Was very dark inside which wasn't pleasant especially when sunny outside and no private outside space (would feel cosy in winter though in the flip side). Was a little shabby & in need of updating eg tap was broken in kitchen and we had to fix it. Not worth £200 per night although appreciate prices are possibly high right now due to covid. Hot tub was great but had a layer of scum in it. Accommodation itself was clean. Great location.

  • "Hi there. As I reported on our first night, the hot tub was not hot so we could not use it until the following day."

    Glasses and crockery were also smeared and appeared to have been hand washed in greasy water even though a dishwasher was available so it was clear the cleanliness had not been adequately inspected and addressed. The silicone oven mitt was also covered in food! So overall, this reduced our confidence in the cleanliness of the cottage even though it seemed good in general. The hot tub was spotless so that was a plus. Overall all this is a great cottage in a great location with great facilities, just a bit more attention to cleanliness required especially during the current pandemic.

    30 every morning and proceeded to bark continuously at everyone passing by the front garden!

    Everything we could have wanted was at the barn- we just took food and board games! The hot tub was great fun, the walking nearby was beautiful, the local pubs were 10/10 (highly recommend the Kings Arms for food and drinks) The hosts were always very quick to get back to messages and did everything possible to make it a nice stay for us! Thank you so much, we had a great time!
