A lovely week away, with a few minor faults which could be easily fixed. Apart from this ideal location, equipment within the barn top notch, particularly liked 2 ovens to cook for our extended family - 8 adults and 1 child. Plenty of room for all of us.

This house is lovely. The place is in the middle of no where and you cant get anywhere without a car, and the 4th bedroom is false advertising as it is a glorified bed in the lounge which is not ideal. If you have a dog then the garden is not closed off so you cant leave them alone as there are fields. I would not return.
