Absolutely beautiful

5 of 5
We stayed for a long weekend, and we picked the perfect weekend. The barn is amazing and so spacious and private. We spent most evening on the lovely terrace area as the weather was superb. The barn is about a 30 minute drive from most of the towns which is ideal as you are tucked away is a pretty little village, the local pub is a must food is delicious. Safe to say we will definitely be returning next year Thank you so much Jackie Xx
