Modern contemporary furniture top notch quality, and fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher fridge, microwave, etc. and the facilities were all there....TV, games room, with CD's to borrow, books and info on surrounding attractions. The week we stayed it was the very hot weather, and it was so relaxing to come back to the spacious light & cool converted barn. the ideal place to get away from it all. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and invited all visitors to a wine tasting and food one evening, in their beautiful garden.

The wine and biscuits were such a lovely touch. We will definitely be returning soon.
