  • "Brilliant accommodation."

    Staff great, keen to help. Due to storms we had power cut, Chloe and her team were one hand with kettles, stoves lights etc...

  • "We absolutely loved Troopers Barn!"

    From the first moment we walked in (and found wine and cake ready to welcome us!) The place was spotless, and amazing for family groups with children. Our little ones loved exploring the house and playing hide and seek. Our bigger ones loved the games room, chilling in the big lounge in the evenings with everyone watching movies, and the hot tub. The countryside is beautiful. We had an amazing time, thank you!

    It was everything that we wanted and more! All the guests had a lovely time! I would highly recommend this accommodation to everyone!

  • "The accommodation was extremely comfortable, clean, well-equipped and the hosts responded very quickly and helpfully to queries."

    The only criticisms that we had were that the bed in the upstairs bedroom with ensuite was uncomfortable (mattress saggy and the whole bed moved when one person rolled over) and a pair of kitchen scissors would be useful. The location was lovely and we all really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

    4 branches of our family got together after all doing covid tests. The propery was spacious and very well equiped. The outside space at the rear of the property was great for bbq's and a lot of use was made of the hot tub.

    The games room could benefit from some updating (equipment and games are not in great condition), but it was still very enjoyable and I would stay there again.

    Lovely accommodation and plenty of room for all. Very well stocked kitchen cupboards -they think of everything. The hot tub was very well maintained throughout our stay .

  • "Very well appointed accommodation that was comfortable for eight adults."

    We had one dog and the field opposite was very handy to exercise him in. The property owner was friendly and accessible without being intrusive. Although Troopers Barn is in a complex with other properties but there is plenty of car parking and there is a private patio at the rear with a hot tub. The location is rural, needing a vehicle to go to shops, pubs or restaurants so we’ll worth taking supplies with you.

  • "Lovely converted barn in a rural location."

    Cottage was well equipped and clean, with plenty of space for all 11 of us. The hot tub is great to wind down at the end of the day too. The cottages are quite remote, but only 30-40 min drive to a whole host of good attractions and beautiful countryside. The owners and staff at the holiday homes couldn’t have been more helpful. Would 100% recommend to anyon
