We had a lovely last minute stay at Rowdens Barn, the accommodation was high quality and very in keeping. The games room was excellent for 2 kids and the small enclosed garden a very good idea to keep our dog safe. We are hoping to return in October with friends.

What a relaxing and well kept place to stay. Perfect for a weekend in the country side with a log fire for those cold winter nights. Perfect for dogs too with secure grounds, just fabulous!

Rowdens Barn was within easy reach of lovely places to visit. We thought the setup of the six cottages was ideal and the enclosed garden would be great to bring our dog along with us next time! The games room was definitely an extra asset too!

A beautiful cottage in a lovely area, it was everything we wanted. There was a garden and a lovely communal garden for all 6 cottages to share. The games room was fantastic too. Would have loved to stay longer.

We were so delighted with the property, we felt we could immediately relax and start to enjoy ourselves. The information about local pubs etc. was very useful as we only went for a short time and you do not really have time to explore so having advice was invaluable. The property was beautifully clean and well equipped. The iced buns for the first cup of tea was a lovely touch!

This cottage was everything and more than it mentioned in the description. A perfect cottage, also a lot more spacious than we had expected.

New in June 2014 we were among the first guests in this lovely complex of 6 barn conversions. Everything is tasteful and good quality. This property is ideal for those with limited mobility as even the entrance is level and parking is adjacent. The outside patio and small lawn are fully enclosed by a 3ft fence so were ideal for relaxed outdoor dining (& wining) with our pooches. Very highly recommended!
