Bats and no wifi
Although the house itself was nice, spacious and clean we found on arrival that is impossible to connect to the wifi both wirelessly and when trying to connect directly to the router. Therefore it should not be advertised as having wifi at all even if they admit it is poor. Additionally, there is a bat living in the house and flew down every evening which was disturbing.

Lovely location, barn very noisey
Stayed here with a group of friends recently. Having stayed here before and loved it wanted to return. Changed rooms this time to the new room in the loft. This room has no door so had to hang sheet over banister at the top of stairway as you can see directly into the bedroom from the kitchen otherwise. This room not having a door means you can hear everything throughout the barn at night and in the morning when early risers get up. Advise to take own pillows too as the pillows here are like rocks when laid on. WiFi is non existent and should be removed from advert in case you need here luckily we didn't and enjoyed the break from the digital age.

Nice place to get away from the city
This was my second stay at this converted barn. I had previously visited 7 ago and the owners have added an additional bedroom with its own bathroom which I stayed in. The problem with this room is there is no door so people in the kitchen can see your room through the stairs and you hear everything up there. The rest of the barn seemed to be exactly the same. Big kitchen which all the appliances you would need. There is a utility room with plenty of room to hang up your washing. The first time I stayed there the WiFi was really poor and that hasn't changed. I would actually list this property as no WiFi available. I believe they are in the process of getting the fibre optic cables installed to improve the services in that area so it might get better soon. Plenty of places to visit locally. I recommend the cider mill which is walking distance from the barn and the Chase vodka and gin distillery.

We stayed at this a while back and what an awesome place it was. we went as a large group and this barn is made for that. a lot of space and the games room with a table tennis absolutely makes it a fun and relaxing place to stay. Views are amazing if you go for walk. plenty of parking space. Plenty of room outside for a BBQ. Interior was modern and some of the living rooms makes you feel right at home. Poor phone signals but we did not mind, sometimes its good to be away from technology and enjoy the nature. The aroma at night is beautiful. Highly recommended.

The pictures don't do this barn justice. It is in an idyllic spot in immaculate surroundings. The owners were excellent hosts. I can't recommend it enough.
