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.
