Stayed at here for my dads 60th birthday with all the family. A great open plan space with a loads of character and the perfect place to enjoy time with friends and family.

A real home from home with a fully stocked kitchen with every utensil imaginable and loads of pots, pans and baking trays for cooking. A massive 10 seater table and loads of comfy sofa's along with two log burners which made it really cosy!

Massive open field in front which was fun for the dogs to explore. Surrounding patios and bbq area were great as was the hot tub.

Would definitely recommend and we will be visiting again.

“Perfect Weekend Break”

We have just returned from a long weekend break in Orchard Barn and Anvil Cottage with our adult children. Our break was all we we could have wished for and more.
The properties are well furnished and equipped with everything that we needed, the location of the cottage is amazing and the views and peace and quiet just incredible. The garden and additional paddock/field gave great space for playing games etc. The hot tub was a very welcome addition and spotlessly clean and maintained.
There are two lovely pubs within walking distance.
Adam's attention to detail throughout the booking process was excellent and the complimentary cake, prosecco and welcome packs were such a nice touch. Thank you for a wonderful family weekend, we will most definitely return.

Hi Fiona,

Thank you for such a lovely review, we are delighted that you all enjoyed your stay so much. Thank you also for the useful feedback that you left us, we have just delivered two cooling fans to our new guests that arrived today!

We are glad that you enjoyed all of the outside facilities too. With a bit of luck we will be making hay from the field this week.

We hope to see you all again soon.

Kind regards,
Adam

Thank you for the most wonderful stay. The cottages were absolutely beautiful and set in extensive grounds, with gorgeous countryside views. The facilities were fantastic too, with a well-equipped, open-plan kitchen, underfloor heating, comfy beds and the all-important hot tub! We very much appreciate the thought and care that went into making our stay truly special - from the helpful and efficient booking service, to the warm welcome with prosecco and a delicious chocolate cake. Every detail had been considered, including extra towels for the hot tub, gas for the BBQ and kitchen staples such as tea and coffee. We could not have wished for more and look forward to staying with you again soon!

“A beautiful barn”
Reviewed January 14, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My friends and I stayed at Orchard barn and Anvil Cottage in December for a hen party. Adam greeted one of my friends on arrival and was very helpful and informative. It was great that both cottages have a key pad system to lock up the key so nobody felt pressure to arrive at a particular time. We also received a chocolate cake on arrival which was a lovely touch. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas which was a nice surprise! The décor is modern and very clean. The barn catered well for all the guests, the rooms were comfortable and the lounge and kitchen in the barn were perfect for us all to comfortably fit in. We made use of the new hot tub and the plastic glasses provided! On the Saturday, we went for the walk through Bluebell Woods which was long enough to get some fresh air and see more of the countryside. We were all very happy with the stay and some were already planning to visit again possibly for a family Christmas! The only downfall was the wi-fi kept dropping in and out even with attempts to fix it, it didn't seem to want to stay on. All in all it was a lovely visit and I would certainly return for a get away in the countryside. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Adam greeted us there, and as you must have already read from other reviews, left us with a bottle of wine and a rather delicious chocolate cake. The place was fantastic, had everything you could need and was extremely clean. Plenty of space for parking, and an awesome jacuzzi, we had an enjoyable barbecue outside, overall there was no really down sides (apart from the bathrooms not having locks, which isn't great when you're on a stag do!). Adam was available via phone throughout our stay if we needed any help with anything.

A group of friends and myself stayed here for a weekend and we loved every second of it. The building itself if extremely well kept, modern and clean. Everything was perfect on arrival and little extra touches such as a lovely cake, prosecco, tea and coffee made us feel very welcome. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. There is plenty of space in the large open plan living area but it still manages to feel homely.

A perfect property for staying all year round. I can imagine that the outdoor seating areas are lovely during the summer. Staying in November we made full use of the wood burners and hot-tub, the whole place stayed warm and very comfortable.

It is obvious that a lot of thought and care has gone into every aspect of this property and it really made our weekend.

Thanks very much for a great stay.

Hi Lee,

Thank you for your amazing review, we are pleased that you all had such a good time. Thank you also for the feed back about the path to the hot tub, these details are important to us and we have now placed some 'stepping stones' over the gravel to make it more comfortable for our future guests.

We hope to see you again some time in the future.

Kind regards,
Adam
