Perfect accommodation for our stay in Manuden
The Garden Barn is situated in a lovely village setting. The accommodation is clean, bright and compact. Everything has been thought of (even down to candles for a birthday cake). The fridge contained fresh milk and butter. Tea , coffee and sugar were provided. A lovely touch was a freshly baked lemon drizzle cake. The owner was hospitable and extremely helpful.
The mezzanine bedroom had plenty of storage space, a comfy bed and nice ensuite.
We had a small, private walled garden accessible through the patio doors. The little robin which came every day was a bonus.
We couldnot fault our stay and will definitely be back later in the year.
Thank you for a perfect week.
Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to have you to stay and would welcome you back at any time in the future.
A great stay.
The barn was the perfect place for us, very convenient for trips out but in a beautiful village. A lovely secluded patio and garden. Thank you so much Sian for letting us stay there. Stan & Jean.
Excellent little hideaway
A lovely, well appointed barn conversion in the heart of Manuden.
Ideally suited for a couple, it can also cater for another two people on the sofa bed, so a family with younger children will find it comfortable.
It has everything you could need and a well kept walled garden that is a little sun trap in the summer.
We had a welcome pack including milk, coffee, tea etc and a platter of fairy cakes to boot :)
We will certainly be back!
Thank you Lee and Lois for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and would welcome you back any time you are in the area.
Everything you need is here.
It is really good to have your own private garden. It had very nice shrubs and bowls and baskets with pansies in. A real bonus. The barn is perfect for a holiday, everything you need is here. The bed was comfortable with good bedding. The shower was large with plenty of hot water. The kitchen is small but has everything in perfect working order for your break. We spent two and a half weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Knus en Schoon, ongelooflijk rustig dorpje.
Van alle gemakken voorzien, lieve eigenaresse.Niet heel groot maar ruim genoeg voor 2 personen. Bij aankomst zelfgebakken muffins als welkom.
A quiet accomodation in a lovely village
We spent a week with our two children in this quiet barn. We came from the south of France by our car so we had visiting many places around. The barn is very bright, bed and sofa bed are comfortable. All is well thinking even the lemon drizzle at our arrival.
We'll keep and transmit a good opinion.
Thank you very much Mrs Sian.
