Excellent property - we are 5 "silver" couples who have been renting together for more than 20 years. Description is clear ( floor plan available if you need it). The owner loves and cares for Barncastle as if it were her home.

“Outstanding property catered for all our needs”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A group of nine of us hired Barncastle and Barn Cottage for a week. What an amazing place. Felt like we were living in a home not a holiday rental. Kitchen very well equipped and such comfortable beds. Plenty of space for us to spread out for Yoga, meditation, sounding and artwork. We have already booked for 2017.

“Time and time again this place delivers pure indulgence!”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed at Barncastle a number of times and it's just perfect, from the building and amenities itself to the setting and surround area. Waking up to the views that surround the barn are stunning and Val makes sure you feel truly welcome every time.

“Fantastic New Year at Barncastle”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

This lovely barn conversion comfortably accommodated our group of ten friends (12 on NYE). The quality of the furnishings and attention to detail give it the feel of a well-cared for home rather than a holiday rental. Val was helpful and responsive throughout and extra touches like the beautiful cake and home-made marmalade were much appreciated. The house is on a quiet country lane but there is plenty to do in the surrounding areas. We had a fantastic week at Barncastle and hope to go back again sometime in the future.

“Exceeded our high expectations”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A real experience. We stayed in Barncastle for 5 days at the end of October for a family break to celebrate my Father's 80th birthday. Everyone was so impressed with the accommodation. My Father commented that he felt so relaxed he could have been at home. Everything you could possibly want was supplied including a delicious cake.

Outstanding building in a beautiful setting. We would recommend Barncastle without hesitation to any large group looking for somewhere really special.

“Best yet”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from our annual get together with friends and we have done this for the last 5 years. When organising something you always worry that the accommodation will be up to standard and in the past we have stayed in places where some rooms were good and others poor, but there was no problem this time. All the bedrooms were of an excellent standard with really comfy beds, lovely linen and towels and the bathroom facilities were excellent.

The location is great with wonderful views and the kitchen living and dining room all lovely. The quality of the fittings and the utensils in the kitchen was excellent and what was a real bonus was the provision of the basic cooking ingredients and tea, coffee etc.

Val the owner came to check everything was ok but then left us to enjoy the homemade cake and marmalade which were both very much appreciated (and gorgeous!)

We are already talking about going back as its the best place for a large group that we have stayed in by a country mile!
