    Excellent cottage in a peaceful spot with the added bonus of the resident dogs, horses, chickens and ducks and, of course, Sarah who was very friendly and welcoming. A delicious homemade cake was waiting for us on our arrival which was a nice surprise along with milk and their own eggs and honey. Great views of the countryside and even saw some deer. Reluctant to leave!

    We had a lovely holiday at Barleycorn. Sarah was extremely friendly and helpful. The cottage had absolutely everything you could possibly need. Cake (home made), milk, honey, eggs, tea and coffee on arrival. Our puppy loved the company through the fence with the farm dogs. Each day, when we got back, she raced through to go out and meet them. I noticed in the visitors book, several were repeat bookings, so that says it all.
