This exceptional brick built detached barn retains many of its original features and offers superb accommodation for two people.

This exceptional detached barn conversion has retained the character of the building and boasts exposed beams in many of the rooms. It has been stylishly furnished to a high standard and is a lovely, romantic hideaway for a couple. The accommodation is all on ground level with a modern, well equipped fitted kitchen on open plan with a dining area and sitting room with a contemporary plasma fire making it a cosy and welcoming space.

The spacious bedroom has a calm and elegant atmosphere with an en-suite wet room, outside the barn is a lovely garden with a barbecue and furniture. There is a shop two miles away and a pub just a five minute walk from the property. A fabulous location for a romantic holiday.


Cancelled-three days before trip!
Planned well in advance to celebrate a 70th birthday and recent birth of new grandson the owner pulled out of the contract three days before our arrival date (and two days before having banked our breakages money). It was left to the company to drop the bombshell and deal with two very angry customers! The reason given: circumstances beyond their control. Hmm! That could mean absolutely anything and IMO was unprofessional in the extreme. Had the owner ever contacted us at all to explain/apologise it might have gone down better-but she didn?t. Buyer beware!

Amazing Retreat!
Philippa our host was so welcoming and friendly, and literally had thought of everything! We were welcomed with a friendly face and a chat, alongside some fresh eggs, biscuits and milk, so we could have a cup of tea and a digestive :) - there was even a few little doggie treats for our pooch! We had such a wonderful stay and loved it here, feeding Larry the Lamb and his friends! Philippa was so helpful throughout our stay, recommending local produce which was delicious! - an exceptional host, nothing was too much trouble. The retreat had everything you needed, including a BBQ which was lovely to enjoy in the sunny garden. Everything was finished to a very high standard and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend you stay at any of these properties, you won't be disappointed - especially with the pub food down the road, definitely try the pie's at the Red Lion about a 5 mins walk from the Retreat!

A fantastic retreat
My wife and I stayed for a weekend for our first trip away with our 3 month old daughter and had a lovely time. The retreat is very peaceful and a good location for walking and trips further afield. The retreat is very well equipped and a very good size for a couple and a child (even with the masses of baby accessories that we bring!). The village pub is a short walk away and does good and hearty food. Phillipa was very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

Definitely coming back
The last thing my daughter said as we were leaving Philippas place was can we stay again. The cottage was a perfect place to come back to after you have had a busy day exploring. Philippa our host was so friendly and we felt very welcome. I took my two children 7 and 2 who loved feeding the pet sheep sometimes twice a day and quickly made friends with Philippas cat Tasha. The cottage is in a really beautiful setting and has everything and more then you need. We were sad to leave and will definitely be staying again.

Amazing Retreat!
After a long journey up, we were greeted by the very friendly Phillipa. She happily showed us around the retreat and had made sure there was some delicious cake and tea ready. Fresh eggs from the local chickens were greatly appreciated for breakfast too. The cottage is even nicer than it looks in the pictures with everything you could possibly want provided; every piece of kitchen equipment we could think of, tv, dvds, wifi, decent shower. The fire was lovely to warm up to of an evening and the bedding was amazingly soft for a great sleep after a busy day. The leaflets in the boxes were a great help when deciding where to cycle/walk/explore and this spot was a great base, with just a short drive to everywhere we visited.
