              A great place to stay

              5 of 5
              Really enjoyed my short break in the Old School Barn. It was very warm, clean and comfortable and set in a great garden which still looked amazing in late October. The views, especially from the bedroom window, were beautiful, and it even had a piano (what more could you ask for!). The owners were very friendly and approachable. Would definitely like to return.

              The cottage was gorgeous. Everything we needed. Furniture was a little uncomfortable for our old achey bones after a days hiking but still an awesome place to stay and we will definately be back

              4 of 5
              We had such a fabulous stay here. The owners are extremely friendly and charming with great local knowledge. The bed is super comfortable and the cottage is extremely cosy. We loved the walks and the fishing thanks to a recommendation from the owner. Great pubs and lots of choice. We will definitely come back and strongly recommend a stay here.
