The Victorian Barn is in a beautiful location it's just a shame about Penny -- the owner.
Yes we were part of a hen party and yes we had a naked butler for 2 hours in the middle of the afternoon but Penny was rude and unhelpful before she was aware of any of this. I really do not understand why people with this sort of attitude decide to go into a customer facing business when they are obviously not equiped with the right customer service skills.
If you are looking to stay in an establishment which offers a warm and friendly welcome then do not choose this one!
