Just returned from a week's break in The Farrier's. The barn is warm, cosy and spotlessly clean. Its well equipped, and unusually has a reasonable TV for a holiday home. The bathroom is bijou, but on the plus side, unlimited hot water and a good shower.
The location is perfect, its rural, but has lots to offer within a short drive. The property is on an estuary which is so pretty, and lots of good walks direct from The Barns.
Emma and her father were very helpful, but not intrusive. Emma organised a massage and facial by Bev, who lives locally. She's also very knowledgeable about local pubs, and which ones allow dogs inside.
Could have easily stayed another week, as we didn't manage to fit in everything we'd like to do !
