“The funnest holiday cottage ever!”

people found this review helpful

We had a BRILLIANT holiday and we're all still raving about it. This is the perfect holiday cottage for having a party (though I think all the toys would also make it good for kids too). The hot tub is utterly divine: we lounged in that tub, supping fizzy beverages, laughing, and listening to 80s music until unholy hours on both nights. The gate into Squirrel Barn is fairy-tale esc: it's vast, wooden and has a great big handle like you're entering a castle. Then there's loads of parking; every kitchen utensil you could need; loads of fridge space; clean and well-designed rooms; and let's not forget an awesome fire in the middle of the garden that was actually lit for us on arrival so we could huddle round that and feel like excitable kids at bonfire night! Overall I couldn't recommend this place enough: thank you David the owner for providing a cracking stay! (plus, the pub down the road serves delish food and is perfect after a chilly afternoon walk in the countryside)

We are currently on our last day at Squirrel Barn and it's amazing! We have everything we need for us and our small children. The facilities are fantastic and David is so helpful. He dealt with a couple of queries so quickly and efficiently. We have been given fresh eggs daily and they are delicious! We had a welcome pack on arrival which was a lovely touch (bread, milk etc)
We really don't want to leave tomorrow! Can't recommend it enough and can't wait to come back!

“Amazing holiday”

person found this review helpful

The best holiday yet! There was 9 of us. 4 adults and 5 children that were aged 1, 3 and 6 years. The cottage had everything we needed and if we need any help David was always around to help. Lovely touch with the fresh eggs every morning. The place was really clean and loads of space for us. The children especially loved all the outdoor activities that were available. The adults loved the hot tub in the evening. The kiddies didn't want to leave and said it was the best holiday yet. Thank you David for making our holiday so special. Hopefully see you again soon.

“Hen party”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I had a fab weekend with the girls at squirrel barn the barn itself is absolutely amazing thank you so much David for all your help with any questions we had. I ended up staying for an extra couple of days where my husband and children joined me. There was plenty of things for our children to do they even had a go in the hot tub as we let it cool to bath temperature, swing ball in the garden and plenty of other games to play thanks again will hopefully have another trip here one year and would definitely recommend it.

“Great week away”

Just returned from squirrel barn. Fantastic time away with the family. Barn has plenty to do on site, lots of Garden games and a play area for the kids (2 & 4) they loved the sand pit.

The scandanavian wood fired hot tub was fantastic for the adults to relax in after busy days, and great for the kids to cool down after being out. This was their favourite part of the barn!

David the owner was on hand for any questions we had, and was very helpful.

Phone signal is poor at the cottage, however with a good wifi connection you can still make calls and keep in contact with the outside world!

In a small village, with a local pub 100yds away, visited for lunch and sat in the garden had a lovely afternoon. Locals were all friendly.

We fitted in lots whilst we were away as the location meant we were within an hour of lots of attractions. Twycross zoo was fab and on a sunny day the water park kept the kids entertained and cool for a while.

We visited Alton towers and CBeebies land which was great, again lovely weather and just outside of school holidays so queue times not too baD.

Fab holiday lovely cottage and lots to do in the area.

“Hen Party Heaven”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Brilliant location if you want a proper catch up. Plenty of room and to a high standard. Dave the owner was very welcoming and explained all, also helped set up hot tub which was amazing once cooled down as we got it too hot! Location not far from Stone for meal, not sure what locals thought of 10 dressed up hen's though. We will defiantly return in the future.

Only real bad point was no phone reception so struggled to make contact when we first arrived.
