The Bull Barn is one of a group of 6 property's which have been very lovingly and tastefully converted from former farm buildings. (Others are 'The Coach House', 'The Arches', 'The Granary', 'The Mill House' & 'The Sheep Shed')
We were very excited to see the property as the photographs and description sounded perfect, however its the first time we have been away and on arrival our expectations have been far exceeded.
We were greeted personally by the owners who could not have been more genuine people, and made sure they showed us round the accommodation and ensured we were happy with how everything worked. Every attention to detail has been thought through in these conversions and you would be hard pressed to not have something that you might need on a self catering stay.
As we travelled with children (10,10,3 & 1) they were keen to show them around the play barn. This is the most valuable addition to the barns as it gives the children somewhere to play and let off steam instead of the usual rainy day activities they may have to do on a self catering UK break! it had a fantastic pool table, air hockey & football table as well as ball pit and soft play for the younger children.
The DVD library was also utilised by our whole group. The children enjoyed having some down time in their room to watch a movie, and as adults (When we could drag ourselves out of the hot tub!!) it gave us a chance to sit and relax and have our own movie nights.
Location wise it was perfect as you are not in a city as a base you find that travelling not very far in any direction gives you an excellent day out and very memorable family adventures, that said we noticed many things that we would have done as adults and will be back to do when we are on child free holidays. The other bonus of the location is the silence in the evening, something very few can enjoy in the built up world we live in today.
Overall the welcome we received and standard of the property made us more relaxed than we have ever been before on holiday. This property and group of properties plus the additional play barn make it the perfect base for the most relaxing holiday for any age. The obvious love and passion put into these barn conversions really comes through in the warmth you feel for your whole stay.
