What a find!

5 of 5
Owl's hoot is an amazing place to stay if you want peace and quiet. It is very clean, comfortable and private. The converted barn is to a high standard and the outside garden and hot tub is such a massive bonus. So relaxing sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine looking at the stars. Amazing! John and Kate were excellent and very helpful, friendly and easy to deal with. They went the extra mile and made my husbands suprise trip for his birthday a very special one. I would highly recommend xx
