Pet friendly accommodation Pet Friendly


The oven was filthy, the microwave did not work, the freezer was frosted up and full of old food. The toaster and kettle share a single socket. The sofa was covered in dog hairs (the property did not accept pets when we booked). One of the lounge sockets does not work (at first we thought the hoover was broken, when we tried to vacuum the sofa). The outside seating was awful (overgrown, nothing like the picture), the BBQ had not been cleaned, and there was a rat in the garden! The bath was stained, the shower had mould growth on the grout, the bathroom skirting was detached from the wall, the heated towel rail didn't (if you turn the valve, it starts to leak). The communal parking area was a short walk away from the property and was unlit after dark. This is all such a shame, as the barn itself is a very nice property, the bed was very comfortable and the duvet of high quality. The shower worked very well. The location near to the coast and NT properties was ideal.

Very Good
We stayed for 4 nights in Whitsun week and had an enjoyable time We had comprehensive information emailed to us shortly after booking which was most useful in planning our stay The barn is spacious, well equipped, clean and dogs are allowed There are a couple of walks on the door step where you can exercise your dog which is useful for morning walks The gardens are very nice and the barn is in a very rural setting but only a15 minute walk from the nearest pub which is a friendly place offering decent food It is well placed for visiting a number of places of interest most within a half hours drive We would recommend the barn however the only downside if you take a dog is that it must be on a lead in the grounds and there is no enclosed area where you can open the barn door and allow the dog to sit outside
