Upon arrival we received a warm welcome, freshly baked pastries and a bottle of wine. The barn was immaculately clean and well presented with stunning views of the rolling hills. When visiting the area again we would not hesitate to return to the barn and have recommended the barn to our friends. Thank you Isabel for a wonderful break. more

Stayed here with my wife and two teenage children. Accommodation was pretty much perfect in all respects. Superbly equipped to a high standard. Hosts Isabell and Brian were very welcoming. They were very discreet throughout the stay however we always felt they were available if required. Beautiful, relaxing location. Brilliant stay had by all and wouldn't hesitate to return. more
