Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend at Beggars Barn for my daughters hen party. So lovely to stay in a house that actually has enough pots, pans, crockery etc to accommodate the number of people staying. The setting was totally perfect to have a fun weekend with pool party followed the next day by games day and afternoon tea. The house is totally gorgeous and even with 22 staying you could still find a quiet corner for a little nap!! We all had a wonderful time we feel we should have an annual get together!! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Comes highly recommended

Owner's Response: Dear Denise, Thank you so much for you thoughtful review. We loved having you all to stay and so appreciate your taking such care of Beggars Barn. Do find another reason to come again! We have just extended the Games Room so you can play table tennis and pool in there or have it as a huge party room!. The two new ensuite bedrooms will be ready by October 2017 so we will have 10/11 bedrooms! Best wishes to you all, and do send some photos! Camilla

Perfect Weekend for 21

  • 5 of 5

First impression of Beggars Barn was Wow. Great location and the house catered for all or needs, a spacious well equipped kitchen with a table to accommodate all 21 of us! The rooms were spotless and provided thoughtful touches of items that make have been forgotten. We used a local caterer Wendy of Good Food Catering who served a delicious 3 course meal in the kitchen. The hot tub was a perfect addition to the house. Thank you to Camilla for sharing her home, the only downside was we had to leave!! Think we all would have liked to stay longer.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

First impression of Beggars Barn was Wow! We had the best weekend for my daughters Hen party. Camilla was charming and had thought of everything to make out stay perfect, attention to detail providing items that may have been over looked. The caterer we used Good food Caterig provided an excellent meal in the well equipped kitchen. The only downside was having to leave as we all wanted to move in permanently! Thank you Camilla for sharing your home.

We had the most wonderful time at Beggars Barn and plan on booking again for next week. The house is gorgeous and perfect for entertaining. It was warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. The owner was very helpful about local restaurants, walks and activities. I would highly recommend this house. We will go back for sure!

Huge, spacious, bright, luxury, easy going house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our weekend. It was spacious, so slept everyone very comfortably. The kitchen was huge and with a table in the same room, so it was designed in a way that it was very sociable. The kitchen was well equip with everything that we needed for our stay. The host Camilla, was incredibly generous saying we could help ourselves to anything we had forgotten. There are so many areas of the property, that we probably didn't even make the most of it, but the garden was in full bloom, so that was beautiful. The trampoline was a hit, and of course the swimming pool. We also really enjoyed the beautiful lawn, and the view from the house is gorgeous, with lovely old trees, and green fields. The outdoor seating area was brilliant, with huge comfy cushions. It was just very easy, very sociable, a lovely place for a gathering of people! Thank you to Camilla for everything.
