  • “Squirrel Barn is a fabulous place ...”

    Squirrel Barn is a fabulous place for a family stay. The children were entertained, there was absolutely everything they could wish to play with. There was plenty for the adults as well. The owner was extremely helpful and we had fresh eggs whenever we wanted them. The accommodation was very comfortable and everything you could need was in there. We had an amazing stay and hope to go back again next year. Highly recommended
