We decided to have a christmas away this year with friends.
Looking for somewhere very rural and out the way- this certainly fitted the bill.
A little bit tricky to find along meandering lanes , but this was part of the charm, as is really tucked away.
Picture postcard setting. For me quintessentially British and of these Isles. Where would you find a place like this in another country?
The conversion of the Barn was fantastic.really high quality and very tasteful. Bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, living room ,real wood floors ,everything
Were were 6 and 5 children , so space was important as we were all there for a week.
The Barn fitted the bill in this respect also
Immeadiate locality is stunning,-the Culm river valley, you dont really need to travel anywhere as great countryside for walks is just outside the front door.
Sarah the owner was lovely. very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble.
A few negatives- the wifi set up was almost non exisistent - so expect to be isolated and out of touch.
For a large group maybe another fridge maybe would have been useful? this was a bit of a struggle - particularly at it was Christmas
And the wood burner was a bit smokey and kept setting off the fire alarms
But this is just being a bit picky and didnt detract from the overall experience
A lovely place and would definately return perhaps in the summertime.
As Its already booked for christmas '13 :-(
