A true gem of a barn! We loved our stay and there was everything we needed to make this feel like home from home. The welcome pack was a lovely treat, the bed was comfortable and the stove gave the barn a wonderful cosy feel. One if the best properties we have stayed in. There are a couple of very good local pubs in the village a few minutes drive Read moredown the road. These would be walkable in about 20-30 minutes during light evenings. Highly recommend this property. Hide
