  • "From the moment we pulled into the drive, we were delighted with Dean Barn."

    The quality of the design, furnishings and thoughtfulness of the equipment and facilities was just terrific. The views across the valley, the peacefulness of the area with several really good walks from the front door enabled us to really relax. The owner was in contact just enough to ensure we were content. We felt very spoilt and would recommend this exemplary property without hesitation to anyone looking for a luxurious cottage break.

  • "Lovely relaxing time, high quality furnishings, beautiful views and a wonderful owner!"

    When we arrived, Emma had left us prosecco and delicious biscuits. The garden had a lovely wendy house, and a horse visitor at the end of the garden. The garden furniture was comfortable too! Favourite part of the house for me was the log burner..

  • "This a extremely well equipped, stylish and comfortable property with excellent views."

    The owners could not have been more attentive and accommodating - a fridge replacement was arranged within an hour on a Sunday evening after reporting a fault. The only facility missing is a washing machine but this did not stop us enjoying a beautiful property.

  • "Having been let down very last minute on another booking on Bank Holiday weekend we contacted sykes who found this accommodation and wow we were not disappointed."

    The host made us feel very welcome, texting to make sure we were OK and how to contact her if there was any problems. The property was Immaculate, furnishings were to a very high standard. Local pub was very welcoming only 1 mile away. We had a lovely time and saved our weekend. Thank you sykes and Dean Barn host.
