very enjoyable

5 of 5
The cottage was ideal as a base for exploring the local area. The interior was suitably equipped for a short stay, modern and clean. The stained glass window is a work of art. Outside is a delightful garden and the steps were well illuminated during darkness (less mobile people might struggle to negotiate them).

A modern take on a holiday home.

4 of 5
This barn holiday home offers excellent accomodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had some minor issues. One was ventilation is the downstairs bedroom. The door couldn't be left open to the outside for security reasons and the bathroom window had no lock on it so could be opened from outside if left ajar. A lack of lighting for bedside reading. Bathroom lighting was overly complicated and in some areas did not work. The steps leading from the entry door were a little hazardous for those who have any mobilty problems. A hand rail of some sort would be an excellent improvement. The T.V.s were all possitioned a little too high. This sounds like a lot of commplaints but we really did enjoy our stay and this is a lovely holiday home. Thank you.
