    We spent the New Year's week there, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very clean and with everything you could need. Local amenities are great ( pubs, restaurants,etc). We would certainly go again.

    Our only concerns were that the cutlery was rather odd and knives in particular a bit dangerous and could do with a mixing/measuring jug and small pan. Parking is much better as we could use the whole area (previously it was a bit tight)

    Lovely place, really convenient. Plenty of Equipment. The only thing that would have been useful for us with young children would be a washing machine.

    Although we enjoyed our stay there were certain things which determined our reason not to return . 1. The furniture too low (we are both in our 70s). 2. We would have preferred a walk in shower not over a bath. 3. We thought it expensive for 2 people it is equipped for 4 people but they have to share a small bathroom.

    The cottage is a brilliant position just two minutes walk from the main quay. Inside the cottage it is light and well designed. The living space, bathroom and one bedroom are on the first floor with the second bedroom and study space on the second floor. We travelled with my elderly grandparents and they struggled with the stairs and the little steps throughout the cottage. The bathroom is very small. Everywhere was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. There are no blackout blinds on the bedroom windows and so it was like daylight at 4am. The helix Windows that make the main living space so light also heat it up - I would not want to stay during a heat wave! The internal doors are fire doors and so are heavy and slam shut as they are not fitted with closers. The parking was accessible by a padlocked chain and this was a bit of a pallava. The parking space is also small. My general experience was good and I am highlighting small points above that cumulatively may dissuade potential guests. We were the second to last guests before the Barn was to be under new possession and management.
