“Brilliant Barn for a large group :)”
Reviewed June 30, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A group of freinds and I rented Ranby Barn to all catch up after our first years at university / in work - hence we were a group of eleven 18-20 year olds, but this wasn't a problem.

We arrived and let ourselves in using the keysafe, the place was amazing and the photos didn't quite do it justice! The owner came over later to check everything was ok.
The kitchen was huge and had more than enough plates etc for everyone, and the lounges etc were of a good size. We spent most of our time either playing pool or in the back garden.
All the bedrooms were plenty big enough, and everything was clean and smart looking; the bedding and towels were spotless.

Overall, the place was amazing and a lovely place to spend a few nights but it did have a couple of annoying niggles:
- Some of the showers in the house were very weak, and wouldn't keep a steady temperature.
- A couple of the bedrooms (Especially the upstairs bedroom above the lounge area, opposite the upstairs seating) were very hot, even with the windows open, meaning a few of us slept poorly.

Apart from the above, the place was brilliant and I would happily go back again!

“Just short of perfect”

We are a party of 8 seniors who have been going to self catering accommodations for more than 25 years, so we know what we are talking about. We agree to a large extent with the comments of other reviewers, but a couple of niggles about this property prevented us giving full marks. Most important of our criticisms is the noise. The floors are all solid wood or tiles, there are no curtains or any thing soft to absorb the noise. This might not bother some people but we found it very annoying. The main lounge area is poorly lit. Why on earth wasn't a window put in the blank wall? Finally although the bedrooms are all en-suite, the showering facilities are poor in some rooms. A hand held shower is not good enough. One room had no shower at all. None of these criticisms should be enough to prevent you having a good time here. It is a fantastic barn conversion (and we have seen quite a few over the years).

“Fantastic Conversion!!”
Reviewed November 27, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed for a weekend with a group of friends, 8 Adults and 1 dog, Fab Place! There is ample parking outside, a very spacious undercover porch containing a Hot tub, Large outside table & chairs and BBQ, (didn't use due to the winter time). Inside you are greeted to a huge entrance with open staircase/landing and large living room with 3 large sofas, coffee table, tv and wood burning stove! (Lovely!) There are 3 ensuite bedrooms downstairs, 1 twin and 2 doubles. Also a separate toilet down stairs. Upstairs a further 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 ensuite and one twin with separate bathroom. and a quite seating area with coffee table.
On a further lower level, is a very large kitchen/diner with large windows looking out on to the garden, with another large outside table & chairs, further through the kitchen is a utility room with microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, everything you need!! and at the other end of the kitchen/diner is a room with a big sofa area & tv and full size pool table with iPhone docking station! Also, once it kicked in, underfloor heating throughout! absolutely fab!

Towels are supplied but..... i would have liked them to have been, more like a bath sheet. Other than that, can't fault the place at all!! Had an ace time! Missed it when we left.

“Terrific”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed a week in this great Barn conversion. We were 10 adults with 2 dogs. Plenty of living space and a great choice of where to sit and eat. In the summer this will be terrific with the bbqs. The bedrooms are fine en suite equipped. Will definitely find the time to return.

“Fantastic place”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here for a week with family, 6 adults and four teenagers 16 - 20 years, plus 3 dogs. We had a fantastic time, the place was absolutely stunning and so spacious. There was plenty to do with the pool table and table tennis and the hot tub was fab. We had two barbecues while we were there and we had lots of fun. The place was so big and had a great out door space which was not overlooked at all. There was also a lovely walk right on your doorstep where we took the dogs. I would recommend this place to anyone with a large group or family.

“Best weekend ever!!!”
Reviewed December 23, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This place is awesome me and Seven of my friends stayed here all early 20s and had a brilliant time. Everything thing has been thought about and no expense has been spared. This place had everything we wanted we could play loud music,play pool get in the hot tub or just chill out and watch a DVD. I would go as far as to say this is the best place I have ever stayed and I created some brilliant memories hopefully we will be returning next year.

“Absolutely stunning, immaculate, perfect for everyone.”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What a beautiful property this is. Not only is it furnished and decorated beautifully it is also in a fabulous location. If you want peace and quiet with lovely walks its there, if you want the hustle and bustle of shops and restaurants you are close enough to Horncastle. The owners live close by and nothing is too much trouble, they were even happy to supply us with a cup of flour. The hot tub is perfect, as are the games room, the barbeque and the secure back garden. There was more than enough crockery and glasses for a party of twelve, and the utility room with the dishwasher and washing machine came in very handy. There was ample parking for 6 cars which is always a bonus when a large party go away. The log burner is amazing and heats the whole house. The open plan living is great for families, as are the three downstairs bedrooms. We had a fantastic time and would definately go again. The only thing we didnt like is the fact that our bedroom was very warm as there isnt a window to speak of, just a roof light which hasn't got a black out blind so the daylight streams in very early in the morning, but this wouldn't be an issue in the winter time. The bedroom was upstairs on the right hand side opposite the upstairs seating area, there was also no dressing table in this room which would have been handy. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding immaculate. We loved this barn conversion and didnt want to leave. Credit to the owners, it is beautiful. Thankyou x
