We stayed at The Barn for a week and only wish it could have been longer. From the design of the living accommodation to the choice of furnishings and household equipment, every aspect of The Barn has been very carefully considered and executed to a very high standard. We couldn't have been more comfortable and would definitely like to stay again.
Tim and Noelle are very gracious and welcoming hosts - the cream tea on arrival, home-baked bread and supply of local milk, eggs, bacon and sausages for breakfast on our first morning, was a lovely touch, along with fresh flowers in the living room and bedroom. Our host's expert local knowledge was also very helpful and Tim gave us some great tips on what to see and do, where to buy local produce and the best places to eat out - we can certainly recommend The Star Inn at Harome if you want to treat yourself.
We also took advantage of the home-cooked meals service available at Noelle's Cottages from Zaks Homemade. It was a real treat not having too cook or think about food shopping during our holiday. We placed our orders in advance for the week and when we arrived back at The Barn on an evening, we'd find our daily menu choices in the fridge with instructions - everything is designed to cook at the same temperature for the same length of time, so all we had to do was put the food in the oven - it really couldn't have been easier and everything was so tasty, we we didn't cook at all during the whole week.
Noelle's cottages is definitely one of the best self-catering holidays we've ever had - we really hope to be able to visit The Barn again soon.
