This barn will only ever exceed your expectations - quite superb and fantastically equipped
This barn is ideal for all ages, our party had "little people", pensioners and dogs, we all had plenty to occupy ourselves with. A great walk as soon as you go out the drive, with Horncastle also close by. The attention to detail the owners have put into furnishing and equipping the barn is second to none. We have rented many properties before and this one is the best we have ever stayed in. We really cannot recommend enough and have rebooked straight away

Ranby Hill Barn was very spacious and clean. Lots of room to spread about with 11 people we never got in each other's way. Loved being able for us to all sit down for our main meal altogether. Hot tub was great so was the pool table and table tennis table. The quietness of the surrounding area was ideal.

Brilliant Barn for a large group :)
A group of freinds and I rented Ranby Barn to all catch up after our first years at university / in work - hence we were a group of eleven 18-20 year olds, but this wasn't a problem. We arrived and let ourselves in using the keysafe, the place was amazing and the photos didn't quite do it justice! The owner came over later to check everything was ok. The kitchen was huge and had more than enough plates etc for everyone, and the lounges etc were of a good size. We spent most of our time either playing pool or in the back garden. All the bedrooms were plenty big enough, and everything was clean and smart looking; the bedding and towels were spotless. Overall, the place was amazing and a lovely place to spend a few nights but it did have a couple of annoying niggles: - Some of the showers in the house were very weak, and wouldn't keep a steady temperature. - A couple of the bedrooms (Especially the upstairs bedroom above the lounge area, opposite the upstairs seating) were very hot, even with the windows open, meaning a few of us slept poorly. Apart from the above, the place was brilliant and I would happily go back again!

What can I say! What a stunning Barn, it was fabulous. It was cleaned to a high standard, well equipped, very roomy and there was plenty to do at the barn if you didn't want to go anywhere. We celebrated a 30th wedding anniversary and a birthday, it was all perfect. Thanks for a fantastic stay.

Just short of perfect
We are a party of 8 seniors who have been going to self catering accommodations for more than 25 years, so we know what we are talking about. We agree to a large extent with the comments of other reviewers, but a couple of niggles about this property prevented us giving full marks. Most important of our criticisms is the noise. The floors are all solid wood or tiles, there are no curtains or any thing soft to absorb the noise. This might not bother some people but we found it very annoying. The main lounge area is poorly lit. Why on earth wasn't a window put in the blank wall? Finally although the bedrooms are all en-suite, the showering facilities are poor in some rooms. A hand held shower is not good enough. One room had no shower at all. None of these criticisms should be enough to prevent you having a good time here. It is a fantastic barn conversion (and we have seen quite a few over the years).
