We stayed at Blaize Barn to celebrate my husband's birthday with friends and family. The barn is advertised as 5* accommodation and 5* it is, from the luxury furnishings and bedding to the china. The barn has a wonderful feel and does not at all feel like a holiday rental but a home. As soon as we walked in to the warm cosy lounge it took our breath away, photos do not do it justice. A lovely welcome pack was provided. It's the little details that count , ie cling film and tin foil in the drawer, washing up gloves etc. The barn has a perfect location in the village, literally around the corner from the High Street. Yes the stairs to the second bedroom (which is a lovely cosy bedroom in the loft with beautiful beams and again exquisitely furnished) are steep but as long as you are careful they are not a problem. The weekend was a total surprise for my husband's birthday. On Saturday we had friends join us for lunch at The Great House (a must go to restaurant if you stay at the barn) and after we returned to the barn. Their reaction to the barn ranged from "wow", "stunning" "how did you find such a beautiful place" etc. We had a great evening altogether. All week my friends have text/emailed to say how good it was and when can we do it again. Do it again we will. Carol, the owner, came to see us to make sure we were OK - we were more than OK!!
Thank you Carol & Jim for a lovely break that recharged our batteries and more importantly created some lovely memories for both us, our friends and children.
