As other reviews have said this is a working dairy farm so sitting outside in the garden was not really an option. Apart from this aspect we loved the location, about a 15 minute walk across the fields to Trefin which has a first rate cafe, and access to the coast path.

Barn is on a working (but pretty quiet) dairy farm so if you want privacy and seclusion this is not for you but if you don't mind a bit of coming and going to watch or your kids love cows then this place is fab and still very quiet and in the countryside.
