Fantastic holiday home

What a wonderful place to stay. We have been made to feel so welcome and at home by the owners. This place easily accommodates 8 plus people. It has a beautiful mezzanine floor bedroom which has a large king bedroom, with an ensuite and also a pull out sofa bed if required, plus two further double rooms downstairs with another shower room, huge TV corner sofa and a fire for the cooler evenings. I stayed here with my two boys, a 10yr old and a 20month old. They provided a travel cot, high chair and baby bath for our convenience which was amazing. The kitchen has everything you need and the dining table turns into a pool table!! Fantastic!! The hot tub was wonderful and the outside seating was huge and comfortable. There is a garden to use with a tree swing with amazing views and a seated area with a BBQ if you need it, plus a chiminea for when you want to stay out and take in the views into the late evening. There is a wonderful brook behind the barn which is a 10 minute wander down the hill and through a small boys loved throwing stones into the stream. This place was a perfect peaceful base out of the hussle and bustle of the town, but also within quick reach so so many tourist attractions. There is a play park a maximum 5 minute walk at the end of the road. Shop is 10 minute drive maximum. Pub is a 7 minute walk. You have to stay here!!! I can't fault it!!
