Quite simply beautiful. All the reviews already do it justice. We where attending a wedding down the road and having the taxi ride to and from is worth its weight in gold. Mick and Sue are the perfect hosts and when it says home stay it really is. Lots of stories of holidays, life in general that makes it a... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at "The Barn" for two nights whilst attending a wedding in the area. We were struck by the warmth of Mick's welcome (Sue was away house-sitting, so we did not meet her on this occasion) and his helpfulness in insisting on chauffering us to the venue and collecting us at the...

A beautiful rural setting and interesting house. Breakfast was a delight and our hosts were friendly without being intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Old Chaff Barn without any hesitation. More a homestay than a B & B.

Upon arriving at the Old Chaff Barn we knew that we had made the right choice. Beautiful house and an idyllic surrounding. Mick and Sue were happy to accommodate and made us feel very welcome into their home even nipping us to the wedding venue at Norwood park and picking us up gone midnight. Mick is an early riser and... More

Our stay with Mike and Sue was perfect. My friend and I stayed for 2 nights to go to a wedding at Norwood Park. We travelled down on the Friday evening and didn't arrive until nearly 10pm. Mike came out and welcomed us into The Old Chaff Barn and helped carry our bags (I do not travel light!) to our... More

I would recommend visiting this beautiful part of the UK just to stay with Mick and Sue. Their lovely B&B really is a home from home and they couldn't have been more kind and generous. Although they have room to sleep about 4 people, they only ever take one group at a time, so there is no need to share... More

My partner and I stayed here overnight to attend a wedding at Norwood Park and could not have wanted more from a B&B. Michael and Sue were so welcoming and provided for our every need. The B&B is set in beautiful surroundings with much wildlife and their dog Treacle was a delight! The room was perfect; very comfortable bed and... More

We booked the old chaff barn looking for a quiet rural stay whilst attending a friend's wedding reception. We couldn't have asked for more, our hosts Michael and Sue were so welcoming from the moment we arrived. We were greeted with a glass of wine...joined them in front of their log fire place and talked  about their amazing travels across Asia. ... More

Sue and Mick are a delightful couple who make their guests feel very at home. They are very generous with their time and their home. The breakfasts are delicious and can be as relaxed as you like. The bedroom is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Victorian rolled topped bath provides a luxurious soak. Mick and Sue have some wonderful... More
