About Amanda

I have been working along side my Gran (Val) for the last 10 years running the holiday lets. She recently has just retired and has now left me in charge to run the holiday lets for her keeping a very close eye on things. I have been brought up on the farm and it's a beautiful tidy well looked after farm with my dads cows kept on the yard. The countryside is beautiful and has some lovely walks to go on around the area. Great pub just down the road as well!

Brilliant night away with some great friends!

  • 5 of 5

The property was really clean and had everything we needed for our night away. Plenty of parking, free wifi and all mod cons. The beds were really comfy and it was really quiet. Would definitely return and would highly recommend to others. Only slight downside was the size of the TV (approx. 28") , but as we spent most of our time chatting it didn't distract from an otherwise perfect stay. Great pub down the lane with lovely food if you wanted a break from the fully equipped kitchen. We even had a walk around to see the cows in the morning.

Lovely, well equipped cottage, which was perfect for our Christmas holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the cottage was perfect, in the country but close enough to Nottingham to allow us to meet up with family and visit the surrounding area.

Comfortable and well equipped house for a small group

  • 4 of 5

We rented The Dovecote and Little Tithe Barn together as accommodation for 6 singers attending a nearby choral workshop and were very happy with our choice. The house was very well equipped and there was plenty of space inside and out for meals and relaxing.

A perfect retreat/coming home

  • 5 of 5

We visited this gem on Aug. 15 to the 22nd, 2017.

First impression, was a cute, quaint, quiet retreat in the country. The place was very clean and comfortable. Linens and bedding were clean. All the comforts of a home away from home. Location was easy to find with GPS in our rental car. Co-ordination of the pick up the keys was interesting. We stopped by the local corner store to arrange access. Everyone was lovely to deal with.

During our stay, we had no problems with the place, besides the resident rooster cock-a-dooing from 5:30am to 11am. We got used to it. All of the appliances were straight forward to use. The only thing we could not figure out was the towel drying racks. Some instructions on how to use them would be helpful.

We had a great stay with the barns, thank you Amanda. We will be back.
