Reviews

This is a great find in a very peaceful location. Beautifully converted and very well equipped. The owners are very thoughtful and helpful but leave you to get in with it.

Mr B,

This property was just superb. Spotlessly clean with plenty of equipment in the kitchen. It was so lovely staying there. The owners were always in hand to answer any questions. Great location

Mr A,

Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing stay. The barn is immaculate and a perfect place to unwind. Ian and Melanie have been fabulous hosts, even providing a fan when the weather got too hot. As we are in the middle of a pandemic some of our activities have been hindered but you can always rely on the National Trust for some wonderful place; Sissinghurst and Scotney. It's a fabulous part of the country we hadn't visited before and we loved the picturesque villages. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

A M,
