The Threshing Barn was THE best holiday we have had as a family. Amazing accommodation, beautiful views and everything we needed! Loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you!!!! 5 star from start to finish... Just wish we had longer but awesome family memories.

The owner Jeremy provided us with a very good welcome pack and was also extremely helpful with lots of local information. I would thoroughly recommend this property either for a short break or extended stay.
