Barns fab too - Hubby and I used to celebrate out 60ths and all our guests loved it. House was lovely and warm as were the Barns - right from booking, meeting Karen on arrival for showing us around and Malcolm who had to come out twice o/a electrics going haywire - but all in all a great venue with an autumn walk to great local pub The White Horse at Thelnetham to shake off the hangvers.
