We spent 3 nights here as I bought my husband a track day at Thruxton nearby for his birthday day. The cottage is amazing... everything you need and very clean. Sarah and Rob go that extra mile to ensure you have a lovely holiday. The scenery is gorgeous and great for walking... our dog loved it. Will definitely be returning.

Many thanks for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at The Old Barns and hope your husband had an amazing track day. Hope to see you all again in the future. Kind Regards, Sarah and Rob.
