“Idyllic accommodation, place to go for peace and quiet!”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My partner, 1 year old son and I stayed in west barn at the start of May. It is one of, if not the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in. We were very comfortable here and had everything we needed. Jane kindly organised for a high chair and travel cot to be set up for our arrival which is a lovely touch and saved us the hassle of packing these large items. The cottage itself is decorated beautifully and has everything you need. I particularly enjoyed the roll top bath in the upstairs bathroom. The dining area was another favourite feature. I left behind my charger and Jane returned it hassle free also. We are looking forward to returning in future.

Lovely converted barn with stunning features and decorated to a high standard . Village itself very quite and peaceful and lovely little pub with a warm and welcoming atmosphere serving lovely food . Also owners jane and Duncan had left wine and chocolate !! And also lots of other essentials like tea coffee bread ingredients for the bread maker lovely little touches I thought . Have raved about this beautiful place to all family and friends and will def be booking again. A great rental for people with or without children as close to many places so can make it as quite or as busy as u want .

We stayed here for the Easter weekend. There was seven people in our party and we took our dog too. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and more, to enjoy our stay. We would definitely recommend and will most certainly return in the future.
