We have just returned from a lovely long weekend trip to boffins barn and we were totally blow away. This barn has been transformed into the most lovely rental. a lot of times when going away somewhere you read in the reviews that its a "home from home" and usually this is true to a certain extent, but with boffins barn its couldn't be anymore accurate.
Boffins has everything you could ever need, especially in the kitchen making it ideal for making your own family meals and not having to worry if there is all the utensils or appliances you need.
All the work that has been done in the barn to transform it into a holiday home is done to the highest of standards. There has been no shortcuts made, everything has been done properly and without using cheap materials.
I sometimes struggle to sleep well when im not in my own bed, but the beds at the barn are so cosy and comfortable I had a brilliant sleep. The bedding is spotlessly clean, and is also very soft which makes a very nice change to some holiday rentals choice of bedding. the same goes for the towels which are thick, fluffy and have a luxurious feel.
There are also extra little touches such as a grey towel per person to use for your face ( so to not ruin the white towels with make up-always a worry for the ladies) and there are make up remover pads in the bathroom cabinets. I found this a brilliant idea, something I think other rentals could learn from.
The living room was so cosy with the log burning fire, reclining leather sofas and the beautiful character of the barn itself. there is a flat screen tv with various dvd/cds to keep the whole family entertained.
Outside, the barn has garden all around, in the front there is a lovely cubed table and chairs which is nice to sit at with either a coffee or something stronger, and look across to the stunning view all around the barn. It is so peaceful and calming, exactly what we wanted from our trip away from the hustle and bustle of Liverpool!
Boffins barn is spotless, absolutely immaculate. I couldn't fault a thing which says a lot as im quite fussy when it comes to staying in holiday homes.
We took my nan along with us and as she cant use the stairs, the barn is perfect as it has a downstairs bedroom with en-suit, meaning my nan had everything she needed for an enjoyable holiday without having to worry about getting access to things, as she had everything on the one level. She walks with a trolley and this was no problem at all in the barn. Its very spacious so my nan could move about easily without knocking or bumping into things.
The owners were so welcoming and friendly and always took the time to have a chat. they are very knowledgeable of the local area and gave us a few hints and tips as to which pubs to eat at, where there was a playground for the kids etc.
all in all id say this is the most beautiful place I have stayed, we could quite happily go again and again, cant wait to return!!
