I joined my parents ( who are regular visitors) for a short stay here in July to celebrate a milestone birthday of my Father.
My parents had told me how wonderful the Barn & Pinn was, but I was still totally amazed. I travel a lot (and in fact work in Travel & Tourism) and this is one of the very best places I have stayed anywhere in the UK.
Lovely well appointed rooms, spacious guest lounge, great breakfasts, but what really makes this place stand out are the Hosts - Kim & Peter - nothing is too much trouble for them and they take such great pride in looking after their guests.
Peter is an extremely talented chef, his food is truly first class, don't think Pub Grub it is a a gourmet experience.
Thank you Kim & Peter for making our family celebration such a memorable occasion - we will be back to visit you again very soon.
