I am very wary of reviews written in superlatives but this property totally justifies every outstanding adjective in your vocabulary. The conversion has been done to the highest standard - everywhere! The setting is magnificent with wonderful views over the rolling countryside and with many attractions within easy reach.Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, who are close by, they were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. There were three generations of our family staying and everyone had a marvellous holiday. Well done Ellaine and Martin .. we had a star quality holiday.

We booked a week at Boffins Barn as a last minute half-term break with our 2 young children. The transformation of the barn into a holiday cottage had only recently been completed and we were the first guests. Inside the barn has been fitted out to a very high standard with much attention to detail. The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen that we have ever had the pleasure of cooking in in a holiday cottage, easily up to the task of preparing family evening meals (which can sometimes be difficult in less well appointed cottages). The lounge boasts a large log burning stove and a generous supply of logs which are replenished each day. The bedrooms are all a good size and beautifully presented as is the family bathroom which has a great walk in shower in addition to the bath. Downstairs there is a 4th bedroom with en-suite toilet/shower, all finished to the same high standard as throughout. The only thing to be aware of is that due to the location there isn't a reliable internet connection. This could be considered a good thing if you are supposed to be taking a break from things, but worth noting. The owners Martin & Elaine, whose house sits a bit further up the hill behind the barn, were very welcoming to us and we would definitely consider returning. Both our children (aged 2 & 5) loved staying here and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others with young children.
