“Peace and Tranquility in the Lincolnshire Countryside .”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife ,daughter, our little dog and I stayed at Berry Barn for a week at the end of August. What a delight ! It was just what the doctor ordered, peace and tranquility.

On arrival we was greeted with a lovely, enthusiastic welcome by our Host Catie who then gave us a comprehensive guided tour of the property. There was a nice touch with a welcome pack to set you on your way, milk, a loaf, butter, orange juice, chocolate chip cookies etc.

The Barn was extremely well equipped and comfortable, Catie really has thought of everything. The location is fantastic for peace and about 5 miles from Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe, maybe about 15 miles into Skegness. Ideally situated to tour the Lincolnshire Woulds, Woodhall Spa, Lincoln etc.

Would definitely recommend Berry Barn for a peaceful holiday at a reasonable price!

Many Thanks Catie and Graeme for a wonderful stay.

“excellent facilities and welcome, but missed wifi, mobile signal and dvd player”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We received a very warm personal welcome from Cathie and were astonished at the number of items made available in the welcome pack. The cottage was very roomy and generally well equipped. We were disappointed as we had expected a dvd player as it is taken for granted so often. Local shops and pubs were few and far between - it is right out in the country - but this is a bonus as it is so relaxing. The property was exceptionally clean. The sloping ceiling in the lounge (upstairs) takes a short while to get used to.

Thank you for reviewing Berry Barn, and apologese for not supplying a DVD player. I thought we had replaced the original one in the cottage when we updated the television, but must have neglected to return the DVD Player. That will now be done.
Thank you

“Really nice stay at Berry Barn”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Excellent stay at Berry Barn, accomodation very good with everything you need for a superb stay. The only negative point of our experience was how long we have had to wait to get our deposit back and we are still waiting! This is nothing to do with Catie at Berry Barn but the letting agents themselves.

“Bloody Marvellous”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a little gem this place is. We arrived to a heart warming greeting from Catie. She showed us around the property and then left us to settle in. The Barn has been developed to a very high standard (being a carpenter you usually notice) and there is not much more than you need except the weather (which we had). We were very comfortable for the whole week that we spent at the Barn as it was part of our honeymoon and are children were able to visit as they lived near by. It was spotless, all the mod cons you would want when on holiday and no need for Internet. A big thank you also to Caties children for helping two techno phobes with the TV. We wholeheartdly recommend Berry Barn and we will return again soon.
We can't thank Catie and Graeme enough. Just Book It.

“The Perfect Place for a quiet getaway”
Reviewed February 18, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

5 Star property - had everything that you could possibly want or need for a holiday let. The moment I walked in, as we were shown around by Catie, I noticed how clean everything was and it everywhere smelt lovely. The bedding and towels were exceptionally clean and fresh (I am a bit OCD about this). The family are a picture perfect family and so, so friendly. My husband and I (and our little pom) felt totally welcomed, relaxed and well cared for. The village is very quiet and come night time, everywhere is still, and dark and it is the best nights sleep I have had in a long long time. Oh and the bed was amazingly comfy too.
Thanks Catie and Family. We will be back.

What an excellent find. Was a great base for our stay in Lincolnshire. We were made to feel very welcome and there was everything that you could need including a few essentials that had been thoughtfully provided on arrival. Thank you so much. We would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.
