  • "We had a lovely stay and would love to return again."

    The house it stunning and decorated lovely, couch very comfortable. There are smart TV’s in every room which was great. Beds very comfy although one of the decorative throws on the bed was very dirty like it hadn’t been washed. And one of the beds in the room near the back door was so creaky with the slightest movement, it may need tightening. The hot tub was very clean and back garden and views were nice. Very modern place with all amenities provided. However it does require a deep clean eg. Stains covering bathroom wall by the sink and the oven was quite dirty inside. Could also do with hand towels in the bathroom. However, towels and provided for the bathroom and separate for the hot tub with wash baskets when you are finished. The downstairs shower - so stiff to turn the temperature dial & the water was too hot we couldn’t use that shower as it was stuck to lava setting, only 1 of 7 of us could turn it so this could do with looking at (not sure if owner was aware). Overall would recommend staying here.

    Thank your for taking the time to leave feedback for our property and it's lovely to see that overall you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry to hear that all was not perfect as we would have hoped, as we pride ourselves on providing a spotless and comfortable accommodation to guests which can be seen from previous feedback. Had any of these issues been raised with us during your stay, we would have arranged to have them resolved as quickly as possible. Due to time constraints on changeovers it can be challenging to schedule in a deep clean during busy periods, however the property has a thorough changeover clean between every set of guests to prepare it ahead of your arrival. I have discussed the points you have raised with the cleaners to ensure that these areas are shown particular attention moving forward. The shower was also assessed to ensure it was operating effectively and the push button had been jammed in which will be the reason it was difficult to adjust - I have rectified this and assume you have made use of the second shower during your stay. We would be more than happy to welcome you back to Upper House Barn in the future and again thank you for your kind words. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, in a great location."

    Very well equipped. Minor issue bed pillows are too hard for my taste, and could do with a couple of extra seats in the lounge (we were a party of six).

    Thankyou for your feedback. We have introduced a lovely poppy covered settle to enhance the seating area. Ideal also for putting the cushions top and tail and lying back relaxing with your favourite novel. We also have an additional 3 seater sofa to match the large existing sofa ordered. Your feedback is valued and this now provides an excess of seating in the barn. There are additional soft pillows in the bedroom cupboard and guests are also very welcome to bring their own pillows to satisfy personal preference. It was lovely speaking to you in person and we hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

    There was everything we needed and more. From the board games, sofa blankets, hot tub towels all displayed beautifully, cooking condiments etc. We loved every moment of our stay especially the hot tub with the most amazing views, they were breathtaking. Thank you for thinking of everything to make our stay an absolute pleasure, we didn’t want to leave & will certainly be back again. From all 7 of us we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect place for our celebration and family time. Thank you & keep up the amazing work ☺️

    Many thanks for your feedback. It has been a challenging year for the holiday let sector and it is very encouraging for the team @upperhouse to read your feedback. We always strive to maintain perfect scores . I am very proud of our team from the cleaners, universal laundry, the window cleaners, grass maintenance, electricians, plumbers, decorators to name but a few of the trades and services involved.

    Well-equipped kitchen and lovely setting. Only suggestion would be another chair/sofa for the sofa area so all guests could sit together, and the sound of people walking normally upstairs, is so so loud when in the bedrooms. But only minor comments, would definitely stay again!

    Thankyou for staying with us at Upperhouse barn.. We have introduced a lovely 2 seater poppy covered settle, ideal for reading your favourite book and to compliment the existing seating area. There is also a 3 new 3 seater sofa on order to lift capacity to 11 or 12. There is also a clothes horse to dry your clothes etc post hot tub. As we supply your hot tub towels this should be a useful attribute. We hope to see you again soon and welcome your constructive feedback. Kind regards john. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely amazing!"

    This place makes you want to buy a barn and create a replica. (if only I could) The owner brought the dairy box in the morning so it was a nice bonus to meet and discuss the history of the barn. There was everything that we needed. The bed and pillows were really comfortable; The sofa too, with its two reclining seats. The timber beams and massive open space make it desirable for families. The views are exquisite and the hot tub makes it just that little bit better. (I could happily live there and we didn't want to go home) I know owners like to know what could be improved but there is very little for this place. So, the only thing that I can think of is a measuring jug that can be put in the microwave for milky coffee to fill flasks for walking days. However, there might already be one in the vast amount of cupboards. If anyone moans about this place, then they are a serial complainer as this is what I would call a perfect little hideaway.

    Dear Chera. Thank you so much for taking the time to write the above review. Being honest it has left me rather speechless. It was lovely to meet you also and we are delighted you enjoyed the stay. It is an absolute pleasure for us as owners to read such reviews as we really do try to constantly refine the guest experience. There will be a measuring jug in place also! Kind regards john and the team @ Upperhouse. Property Owner

    We were all very impressed by the barn. And really enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately the weather was not in our favour however we made full use of the board games and the hot tub. Definitely warrants another visit when the weather is warmer and dry .

    Thanks for your feedback and your wonderful comments. We did design the property so that you can enjoy time at the property. It was one of the reasons for having a television in each bedroom so as to allow group members their own space; as well as the option of the communal areas. All the best, john and the team.

  • "Overall we had an amazing stay at this property!"

    ! Would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a relaxing weekend away with family or a group of friends. The barn is situated just back from a main road but noise is minimal. There are lots of lovely walks and the house is approx a 6 minute walk to a lovely farm shop. The property itself was fantastic, it was extremely clean, modern and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I have listed the cleanliness of the property slightly lower as the property was spotless apart from the hottub was not very clean, it was cloudy and there was no chlorine present. The only other thing I would mention is if you're expecting to have a "bbq" then be prepared as the bbq was more of a fire pit and very small to try to cook for 8 people but we made do! Other than that I can't fault this property and would definitely look to stay again, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for the feedback. It was nice to meet you briefly and we are pleased that you wish to return. The hot tub is emptied for every set of guests and 5kg chlorine granules are next to the hot tub in the large box. That said you do not need them as we check the hot tub every day for you. Contaminants such as hair products etc do have a major effect, chlorine does not help in that regard. If there are any issues on your stay then please do mention in person when we see you or just contact us on the numbers provided. There is a 20 point list on the purple sign next to the hot tub on conditions for use. I shall also check the listing with regard to the firepit barbecue to ensure it does say words to that effect.

    The hot tub was great very clean and great after a long walk. The only things that I feel may help would be some sort of hooks near the hot tub to hang towels maybe just an idea I do find the drive up to the property rather harsh on the underneath of my vehicle but not sure how you would get round this as the barn is night up But all in all a great find for us and will definitely be recommending the property Thanks again

    Thanks for the feedback. Glad you really enjoyed the stay. There are two access drives so if you have a lowered car that can be used also. There is also the lower level parking. Great to hear that the hottub was utalised well. Just to note there are hooks on the hottub bar for the towels, 3 on each side, but they are easy to miss as they are black. To be honest I will mount some on the wall of the barn going forward and they will be more obvious. Hope to see you again soon and it was lovely meeting you in person. Kind regards john.

    The barn has lovely exposed beams and plenty of space. The hot tub was a nice luxury. One suggestion for improvement would be for extra seating in the living area as one corner sofa wasn’t enough to seat the number of people the cottage sleeps - and there is lots of space to accommodate more seating.

    Upper House Barn is lovely ,modern & spacious . The upside down layout was enjoyable for our party . Ample room for 7 adults and a 6 month old . The open plan upstairs was really nice because we could interact with each other if we were in the kitchen or the lounge space . If you did want to chill out on your own the bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable . There is a good sized family bathroom with bath & shower to share on the same floor . The upstairs shower/wc was a great addition to. The hottub was a nice feature & we used regularly throughout our stay. The views are amazing , we unfortunately didn't get chance to visit the local area due to the heavy snow but the snow actually made our family break more magical !
