We hired the bunkbarn for a 40th birthday celebration and descended, kids, parents, grandparents and all, for a fantastic weekend break. Take the former reviewers at their word when they talk about Rob and Claire - perfect hosts from start to finish. They succeed where many holiday accommodation owners fail, at being warm, welcoming and helpful whilst still being discreet and making you feel like the place is your own.
Great facilities, plenty of space, the kids (4 and 2) LOVED it, and there is so much to do in the area, we could easily have stayed a week. Think... days out walking, messing around on the water, visiting lovely villages, lazing around outside proper local pubs, then returning home to a perfect woodland bar, BBQ and campfire, before retiring to the bunkbarn to gather around the log burner (burning pellets actually but not sure what they're called!) and play pool... and you get the picture.
Thanks Rob and Claire, the website paints a great picture and you did not disappoint. We wish you all the best with Tarset Tor for the future :)
