A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Christine and Dave are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The barn is welcoming, homely and has all that you need for your stay. The shortbread on arrival with choccy chips was very welcome after travelling from London.

The views are fantastic, the bed is very comfortable and they have thought of everything.

We travelled as far as Winchester in Hampshire, Salisbury in Wiltshire and Seaton in Devon to name a few and they are all easy access.

We have been gone less than a day and we already miss it. If we are ever in the UK again we will make every effort to return.
