  • “Thank you so much to the owners for ...”

    Thank you so much to the owners for making our stay so enjoyable. They really went the extra mile even laying out toys ready for our 19month old girl Isabelle to play with on arrival. I think its safe to say this has been the highest quality self catering accommodation we stayed in. The DVD showing the history of the barn and photos of the conversion were fascinating and they should definitely be proud of the resultant finish with the real oak everywhere and granite work surfaces. ...

    Thank you so much to the owners for making our stay so enjoyable. They really went the extra mile even laying out toys ready for our 19month old girl Isabelle to play with on arrival. I think its safe to say this has been the highest quality self catering accommodation we stayed in. The DVD showing the history of the barn and photos of the conversion were fascinating and they should definitely be proud of the resultant finish with the real oak everywhere and granite work surfaces. Excellent base to explore the area - with footpaths leading straight from the property. We discovered a great large playground area for children of all ages at the Severn Trent reservoir only a few minutes drive away. Isabelle loved "baaing" at the lambs at the farm every time we went outside! Have already recommended to friends and we definitely hope to come back again. Can't think of anything negative to say - even the weather was great! Roly, Lucy & Isabelle.
