“Amazing weekend ”
Reviewed 6 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Wow! What a place. Stunningly refurbished old barn. Sympathetically restored.
All mod cons, 5 double bedrooms. 4 bathrooms, two with baths.
Beautiful living space, log burners, with logs provided for 1-2 days. Just to warm the cockles after a long walk.
Thank you so much for the homemade Victoria sponge, and marmalade. Really yummy. Took some home for my kids, loved it.

Real treat to be there with my girlfriends, just enjoyed each other’s company.

Thank you so much. Will be back

“Perfect”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed here as a family with grandparents to grandchildren, 10 in total. Barncastle was faultless. There was plenty of space, with no one feeling crowded or on top of each other. We had many plans to go but the children wanted to stay in the 'holiday house' and play in the garden! Communication was excellent, the extras were faultless and everything had been thought of. A wonderful time with lots of memories made, thank you.

“Perfect base for wedding party preparations”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Barncastle was the perfect location for preparation for our daughter's wedding. We arranged the flowers for the venue in the huge farmhouse kitchen. The bridal party were in the cottage and the groom's family in the farmhouse. After the wedding we had a weekend party for the families to get to know each other. The bedrooms were all beautifully decorated and furnished. There was ample crockery cutlery and glassware for the various meals that were prepared. The views were outstanding and we were very lucky to have such fantastic weather - the blossom was appearing on the trees and there were carpets of daffodils - the homemade cakes on arrival were also a big hit!

“Fantastic venue, for a group holiday HIGHLY recommend”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Stayed at Barncastle for a long weekend in March to celebrate a birthday. A group of 8 however could easily have slept 12 comfortably! What a stunning venue, this is 5* accommodation. It's literally better than a home from home - it has everything you could want and more. Beautifully decorated, fresh flowers in the main living areas - even a homemade cake and marmalade when we arrived - with milk tea and sugar waiting for us! We had a fantastic time, don't hesitate - book it!

“Simply stunning”

person found this review helpful

A group of 14 of us booked both the barn and the cottage to celebrate my 40th birthday. The barn is stunning, huge and amazingly well equipped. All of the rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. The cottage is also lovely and would be great for a family of 4. We had a perfect, relaxed weekend in a beautiful setting and cannot wait to return.

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.
