Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in January 2018

I booked this lovely house to celebrate a special birthday and it was fantastic! Even though the photos of the property are great, they don’t do it justice for the high quality finish, spacious and luxurious feel to the property. Everything was clean and in good working order; great showers, quality linen and well thought through. You weren’t left wanting...

Management response:

We stayed at the Grain House for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The place was very well equipped and very child-friendly. The place was very spacious and comfortable. The highlights for us were the hot tub and games barn as well as the large fenced garden that kept the children amused. We will be back!
