“FABULOUS !!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Absolutely fantastic place - we had a great time. Clare and Delisle were extremely welcoming. The barn was spotlessly clean, very well presented and well equipped. It is in a central but tranquil location with nothing on the island more than 20 mins away. You won't fail to be impressed with Ralph's Spa Barn - it is without question the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. Look forward to returning very soon

On arrival Clare and Delisle were there to meet and great us, they are a lovely couple who would do anything for you, nothing is too much trouble.

The barn is very well converted and is set in a peaceful location, only 20 mins from the port and from local beaches. The mood lighting and the all inclusive sky tv was an added bonus and a great treat to relax and forget about the rest of the world! The hot tub situated in the garden was just perfect, a great retreat after long walks down the beach. We also booked a massage each with Gema who was fantastic, she set up in the bedroom and she was very professional - highly recommended.

We booked the barn for 3 nights for our honeymoon and we wish we had booked for longer!

We will be returning soon...thank you for a lovely honeymoon retreat.

I cant complement this place enough. The house is in a great location just outside Newport, with some stunning views around. The garden is excellent, me and my little one absolutely loved chilling in the sunshine. He is only 10 months old so having a house to ourselves was ideal, and the place had everytihng we could possibly require to make our stay comfortable. The hot tub was a great bonus, ideal after a day of exploring the island, and we are still looking for pillows like the ones in the bedroom, they were so comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend this place, and Clare and Desile were absolutely lovely. They made us feel at home from the first meeting. Thanks guys for being so chilled out and making our stay so enjoyable. We will definitely be returning here.

The spa barn was amazing, lovely place to stay out of the way yet close by to Newport. The whole place was clean and it really felt like you were at home. Even though the weather was awful we made the mosts of the amazing property. We will back in the near future. It really felt like your own. Hot tub is the best bit.

A great welcome from Clare when we got there.
A great little apartment with one bedroom and two bathrooms, I think it would be a bit cramped for four people if they needed any space to get away from each other.
Great for relaxing (in the tub) or watching Sky TV (Movies/Sports) or entertaining, cooking, sleeping, and outside on the veranda.
Really quiet considerings its 5 minutes drive from central Newport, and a real feel of being in the country!
A really nice weekend at a throughly nice place

Well, what can I say! I wish I could actually just live here. Received a wonderful warm welcome by Clare and Delisle when we arrived, and the barn itself is just beautiful. It provided a great base for our fossil hunting and all the relaxation we needed after. The hot tub is fab, the bedroom is lovely and the kitchen is super swish. Just what we needed, even the drab weather couldn't ruin our stay. Do not listen to the few bad reviews, this place is amazing!

We have stayed at Ralphs spa barn twice now. We will be back again I am sure! It was fresh and clean, and the hot tub is great! The owners are extreamly helpful and helped us feel very much at home and relaxed.
