Best friends escape for the weekend!
My 4 best friends all now in our early 50's have known each other since primary school and have been going away once a year for a weekend break in the UK for years now. It's our yearly treat, but thanks to the Pandemic, we have lost the last 2 an a half years! So when we found this great little find we couldn?t wait. Our weekend was well overdue! From start to finish the communication with Steven the owner was brilliant. Especially when I got lost on arrival, the sat nav takes you to a barn just down from the barn itself. But take screen shots of the barn pics with you to help recognise it! The black chimney on it was the best give away. The barn was amazing. So clean and very well equipped, everything you need and more. The beds were all so comfy, great pillows and lovely fresh bedding too. Highly recommend taking a few towels per person as ones supplies are a tad small, and you have to remember you need them for the hot tub too. Log burner was fab, plenty supplies of logs too, which made the room very cosy on an evening. Lots of board games and DVDS for those long quiet nights. Although main TV in lounge does not have a DVD player, just the bedrooms, they did have Netflix and Disney channels along with the normal tv choices. Fab find was also the blue tooth link from your phone to the hot tub. So you can have a soak and listen to your tunes too. Perfect! Hot tub was the most fun part of our trip, great set up in a lovely converted shed/bar, ideal worn comfy seating also for when you get a bit too hot and want to step out for a bit. Views from the barn are amazing, and we had a nice stroll into the local village which is only a mile away, lovely tea rooms and local pub along with a great well stocked co-op! This weekend was just what we all needed and more, would highly recommend and we have already agreed to booking up again in the near future, but for anyone showing any interest, book it! You won?t be disappointed!
