Great property, really comfortable and pleasant to stay in. A very helpful and friendly owner.
Ms Ridley

We were delighted with every aspect of this property. Our only regret was not being able to stop there longer.
Mr Bailey

Fantastic barn conversion, the best we have ever stayed in.
Mr Hawkes

Roverside Barn was amazing, very spacious even with 6 adults sharing, we all had an amazing time. The games room was a great asset. Location was perfect for roaming around the Beacons.
Miss Bell

Most horrible first trip with our 4 month old
We have been told by the owners that they would be around to greet us and that the barn would be open, but when we arrived at the property in the dark and cold aroudn 5 pm no one was around, the doors were locked and no one could be reached on any of the phone numbers we had. We had repeadetly tried to access the property and tried to reach the owners and finally gave up and left at around 9 pm. I find it horrifiying that anyone would leave a young family in the cold and dark for so long. We finally received a text with the key location at 0.40 am. I have no idea what the owners have been thinking that we would still hang around this late. For a first trip with our 4 month old, it could not have been a more horrible experience. Good that she won't be able to remember!
