What a sensational place, Barbara and John were wonderful hosts, left us to our own devices but were always there if needed. The barn is brilliant and the wild life wonderful. Thank you Barbara and John for sharing your piece of beautiful Midlands with us, we all just loved every minute. We were thoroughly spoilt. more
