I have just booked The Red Barn for 2014! This will be our 5th stay. On arrival, the freshly baked bread and cakes, along with freshly laid eggs are just a taste of the warm welcome you will receive! The family who own and run this accommodation are always on hand should you need them and very friendly and accommodating. The Barn is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped for disabled and the able bodied. The setting is 'chocolate box'. Although we don't have young children it would be ideal as it is a very safe environment with a large fenced area in the garden. The barn is set a good distance from any roads so it is very tranquil.
We have tried other accommodation that has advertised as being disable accessible but nowhere has come close to this for easy access throughout. Having said that, don't think this barn is just for disabled guests - we have stayed here with and without our disabled family member and will continue to do so as long as the Barn is in business!
