The barn is set apart in its own gardens/fields and is furnished to an excellent standard - comfortable bedrooms and high quality bathrooms. The living area is very spacious and ideal for an extended family to relax and enjoy a good time together. We set up some karaoke on the Saturday night with no worry of disturbing anyone! The owner Katie was friendly, welcoming and very helpful. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings, especially the bird life, and had great trips out to local places of interest. We'll be back!
