“Perfect holiday retreat, fantastic location and scenery”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We are a family with two small children and we stayed at The Old Barn in March. It's such a beautiful setting, it truly is like a picture postcard.
The Barn is tastefully decorated and very well equiped with everything you would need. The home made cake, wine and fresh eggs from the farm's chickens are a wonderful touch.
Families with children and couples alike will enjoy exploring not only the Barn but the surrounding area. There are wonderful walks straight from the doorstep with breathtaking views. Our doggie was particularly happy!
It was an absolute joy watching our 3 year old daughter running freely across the fields to see the lambs.
The location is also excellent as even though it's so quiet and private, there are shopping amenities and restaurants within a short drive.
If you stay at The Old Barn you are guaranteed to feel totally relaxed and be extremely impressed with the accommodation as well as the setting. Would 100% recommend.

“Heavenly cottage and beautiful surroundings, couldn't have asked for more”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A warm and cosy cottage, restored to an incredible standard and also very tasteful. Didn't feel like a rental property at all and completely loved it. Am very keen to return with the family next year. The surrounding countryside and walks were breathtaking but it didn't feel a million miles away from civilisation with the town ten minutes away. We had such a warm welcome from the owners who couldn't have been more helpful - fresh eggs and even a homebaked cake to arrive to. We loved this place and it was exactly the sort of break we needed. A surprising amount of things to do with the kids including climbing, riding, the Big Pit etc.
