Just got back from a wonderful 5 days in The Byre at the Victorian Barn. It was really great in every way - the setting, the welcome, a wonderfully warm pool, a good gym, excellent views and local walks, the games room, the hot tub. Our kids were so happy - and they fell in love with Katy the dog!... More

This was our first visit to the Victorian Barn and hopefully there will be many more visits. The cottage was spotless and very well equipped. The children enjoyed the swimming pool and adults enjoyed the hot tub. In all it was a very relaxing weekend and Penny was very helpful.

A group of friends (8 total) stayed in one of the Victorian Barn's suites for the October half term. As a few of them are teachers, we went in an attempt to get away from the hustle of tourists and families and just have some quiet time to relax and reflect, enjoy the local countryside and eat lots of cake....
