Welcome to Harvest Moon, with plenty of room for eight plus pooch!

Fantastic barn for a group of friends celebrating New Year! Everything was great and we loved the thoughtful welcome basket full of all the essentials and more! Will be booking again for sure. Great location too if you're looking for some peace and quiet and lots of good dog walks! Thank you!
