Beautiful old barn in lovely surroundings - for the best nights sleep ever!

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in a beautiful renovated barn with charming accommodation and the best nights sleep we've had in months in the most comfortable bed. The cottage is fully equipped and tastefully decorated, set in the most delightful surroundings in a very peaceful location. Jane and John were great hosts and we will definitely be returning in the future - Susan & Phil.
