Reviews

A stunning barn conversion in a stunning location. Everything was perfect and Caroline was both really pleasant and very helpful. We will definitely re-visit. - 30th May 2017
This was our 2nd stay this year and the property does not look any worse for wear after a full year if bookings. Obviously very well managed and cared for. Everything you need! - 9th September 2016
Far outweighs all other properties we have rented! I appreciate that it is brand new but feel that, due to owners high standards, the quality will still be there on our return visits! We have been well and truly spoilt by staying here and won't find a better, well kept, superbly fitted cottage anywhere!! - 22nd April 2016
