“Family get together”
Reviewed 6 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We wanted to bring our two families together - 3 generations aged between 62 and 2 years old. My husband found this place after trawling the Internet and after canvassing opinions we decided to book for this first weekend in December.

We had a great time. Yes, the barn was chilly but it is December and it offered a dry and safe place for the kids (and some of the kidaults) to play. The dining room and lounge had plenty of heaters and blankets and was really cosy. The kitchen is really well equipped and we had loads of room to play games, watch movies and do some craft work too.

Derek was really helpful throughout - answering my questions and organising the pods to our requirements.

The pods are fab - so comfy. The kids loved the lighting.

Hopefully we will make another trip in the future. The ideal venue for a large family get together.

Thank you Vanessa for the great review.
It was so good to know that The Barn "delivered" in terms of comfort and activities for your extended family reunion.
Look forward to seeing you all again one day.

Thanks for such a great review. Don't let it be too long before you return, you were a perfect group to host.
I think The Barn was cleaner after you left than when you arrived!!!!
Thanks again and I'm so glad the Jacuzzi was a hit.

“Fabulous Family Holiday!”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I booked the Barn for a week to celebrate my 60th birthday with family and friends. The ages ranged from 4 to 72 plus a very lively border collie and the Barn was just a perfect venue. The best thing is the children are completely safe inside the Barn and they can run around, ride bikes, play games and use all the play equipment with no restrictions. In fact they enjoyed it so much it was hard to persuade them to leave the Barn for days out! The kitchen has everything you need to cater for a large party with a huge dining area and comfy sitting room. The area has great beaches, walks and attractions to keep everyone occupied whatever the weather. Derek and Angie could not be more welcoming and helpful and were always on hand if we needed them. The pods are warm and comfortable and provide some privacy if required. We all had a fantastic time and have some amazing memories of a very special time in a unique place. Thanks Derek and Angie - we will be back!

“Amazing weekend away!”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A group of 17 of us travelled to the Leisure Barn for our friend's Stag Do. I had booked it not knowing quite what to expect and the place blew everyone away!

Derek and his wife Angie are both lovely people and gave us a good tour of the place on arrival. The space itself is absolutely massive and all of the facilities are excellent. The sleeping pods were nice and warm even in Feb and the kitchen and dining facilities had everything we needed for cooking big group meals.

We had two party nights on Friday and Saturday, the surround sound filled the barn with music and we had videos playing on the projector screen. The astro turf area was brilliant and we had plenty of games of ultimate frisby and football and rode around like giant kids on the massive selection of bikes!

Overall it ticked all the boxes and I would strongly recommend anyone to come to Lane Barton for a weekend like no other!

Thanks again Derek and Angie!!

“The best cow shed by a mile..”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in April 2016

When we arrived at the barn I wasn't sure what to expect. Derek came out and met the group (12 lads aged 20 - 25) and ran through all the features of the barn. His general attitude and demeanour was welcoming and friendly, and was happy to advise us on noise level restraints and general do's and don't questions. To summarise. You couldn't make enough noise to bother anyone even if you wanted to.

We had a few days of intense table tennis, walking, drinking and playing with parties in the evenings, and genuinely loved every minute. The pods were well heated, but the actual barn did get cold at night so make sure you pack thermals if it's not the summer. If you're thinking that this might suit your group holiday for a week, I can attest to every other review on here that YES IT WILL. Thoroughly reccomend it to anyone!

Looking forward to coming again next year!

“IT'S MASSIVE !!”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

17 of us stayed over the August bank holiday and there was still room for more !!
Kitchen is fully equipped with double ovens, microwave, dishwasher ( take tablets just in case ) all your pots & pans that you will ever need.
Like my title says and one of our party said ' IT'S MASSIVE ' inside ,space for football, tennis , volleyball, bikes , table tennis ,pool and most of that was going on at same time.
The big screen and sound system turned the barn from party night one night to cinema night another.
Derek was very very helpful making sure that we had the best time that we could have had.
Age range in party 4-42 and all loved it so much that we will be booking up again.
