From the second we arrived, we knew we were in for a fantastic family holiday. We chose to stay in The Barn - and I'm glad we did! It was brilliant. We have 4 young children so we usually expect a noisy household. Well, this time we were in for a treat. The kids had a ball, yet it felt utterly peaceful. The sheer size of the space meant that the kids could have a great time exploring, yet surprisingly it was still very quiet. It's such a lovely place with so much detail and all the features you could hope for. The kids loved toasting marshmallows in the fire place and there was heaps of fire wood to keep us going for a very long time. The kids had so much fun playing in the house that for two whole days we didn't go anywhere. We just stayed indoors and relaxed. (The heated floors were such a treat and fantastic for the kids each morning and night.) We were there for just over a week and could have happily stayed much longer. When we finally ventured out, we skied at Perisher and were lucky enough to find a fantastic ski instructor for our daughter with special needs. We've just booked another trip for next year and can't wait! I'm sure it will be just as wonderful the second time.
