The Barn itself was fantastic, 5 star accommodation, and the surroundings and owners made the whole package. The couple were very pleasant and informed us of the history of both business and farm. The bulls were our amusing neighbours for the week. Again, a fantastic holiday and the hot tub was a huge bonus for those lazy evenings spent in the barn.
