    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.

    The log burner was one of the main reasons for going to Drakes Barn and it didn't disappoint. Great location for a get away from it all break. The owners made us feel very special and their local knowledge, which they were happy to share, was invaluable. Dog, children and adults all very happy.

    Lovely cottage beautifully clean, but having a bad back would have appreciated more comfortable beds. Beds aside it really is a lovely place and the owner is very welcoming and helpful. Very peaceful location in the middle of great countryside. Really enjoyed our stay and would go back.

    The cottage is very cosy, comfortable and clean. The only thing that let's it down is the bathroom. The ceiling over the bath is extremely sloping, so much , you have to sit in the bath to shower. No problem for children and the agile, but a no go for older people. It is set in an idelic spot, all you can hear are birds, and overlooking the owners lovely garden.
