“Great 5 Star Property”
Reviewed August 16, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We have now stayed four times at Barnacre Cottages, twice in Mole End and twice in the Old Stables. Both properties provide excellent accommodation and facilities and are maintained to a very high standard. The cottages are set in peaceful countryside, though not too far from local villages and towns with a good range of shops, cafes pubs and restaurants. 

Our most recent stay was at Old Stables. Although already first rate it has been improved this year by refurbishment of the bathroom and en suite shower room and the addition of an extra shower room downstairs. As ever the cottage was very clean and well presented, and provided everything we expect of a five star property.

Old Stables is deceptively spacious with a long living room and kitchen leading to a delightful conservatory, which opens out to the large private garden at the side. The Aga cooker is a particular favourite, although there is a conventional hob and oven as well.

We’ve enjoyed sharing family meals and relaxing in this lovely property.

Terry and Sue always make us feel very welcome and are on hand to give local information and suggestions for walks and excursions.

Visiting Barnacre is always a pleasure and we are already looking forward to our next trip in the autumn – this time for two weeks!
