    Cosy and cute, this cottage is set in the most peaceful, beautiful location with great walks from the door. The cottage had everything we needed and extra crockery and cutlery so we never ran out. The welcome pack was also very generous. We just stayed 3 nights over new year and the wood burner was a wonderful treat in the extremely cosy living room with the most comfortable sofas. Would definitely return another time.

    We had a lovely stay. The cottage was in a rural setting which is just what we wanted for a complete switch off and some quality family time. It was very comfortable and we loved spending our evenings playing games in front of the woodburner and watching shooting stars from the lovely courtyard. We will definitely stay again in the future.

    Drakes Barn is a cosy and comfortable cottage, set in peaceful and scenic countryside. The welcome basket was a very nice touch, and David and Caroline were very friendly and helpful hosts.

    Great character cottage, particularly well located as it is peaceful and secluded, whilst only taking a minute in the car to get back to the quiet main road, which is ideal if like us, you wish to go out most days. The owners were a pleasure to meet and very welcoming. We would highly recommend this cottage with the only proviso being the cramped bathroom that one or two others have rightly suggested may not be suitable for some, although did not give us any problem.

    Lovely place to stay, idyllic location. A lovely basket of goodies on arrival was a lovely touch. We had a warm welcome. Information on the local area was at hand from a basket provided in the living room, which had a lovely log-burner and a big sofa for all the family to snuggle up on. Pleasant small space outside, next to the kitchen to sit and have a meal while listening to the birds. A little orchard could also be used if needed. A home from home. would definitely recommend to friends. a big thanks to the owners for a fabulous short break.
