Cake and scones awaited our arrival, charming hostess and very well facilitated. Home made food to order is worthy of the 5 stars and the gardens attached to the cottage are heavenly.

We were a group of ten fun loving and noisy ladies who were there for a friends 40th birthday, we partied, chilled, relaxed, ate, drank and generally had a ball!! and this place suited us down to the ground. The barn is done to such a high standard from the bedding and towels to the kitchen utensils. It has a beautiful layout that has to be seen to appreciate as the pictures on he website don't do justice to how amazing this place is. The owner Trish was so friendly and welcoming with out being obtrusive at all. She is onsite if you need her but we didn't see her from our welcome until we checked out on the Monday. We will absolutely be booking up again and I urge anyone looking to host a family or friends weekend to get booked up...you wont be disappointed!!!.

The property has been renovated to a very high standard. It was spotlessly clean and everywhere felt fresh and new. The owners were very prompt with any queries we had prior to arriving and were very welcoming. The garden is great with a nice seating area and lovely views. I genuinely cannot think of anything wrong with it and would highly recommend staying here.
