A beautiful, and thoughtfully converted barn. Two stylish and comfortable bedrooms. Quality mattresses and bedding. All very clean. Plenty of hot water, clean bathrooms, and effective heating. The barn is well equipped. The location is fantastic for foodies, with a very popular farm shop and cafe a few yards away. We had planned to eat out locally, but the food on offer there was so interesting, and of good quality, that we cooked quite often. The barn had enough equipment to cook anything we wanted. Even with the farmshop close by, the barn is very private, not overlooked, and there was no noise at all from traffic. Not a sound at night. The owners met us when we arrived, were friendly, and showed us around adequately. They generously left us a couple of extra treats as we had married the day before our stay. It was a beautiful and romantic place to honeymoon. We can't wait to return.
