Lovely cottage for a big family. Lots of local attractions. Beautiful walks and trails. I personally found the amount of chlorine in the hot tub too much - in the end I couldn’t use it, which would stop me booking again as a hot tub is a must on a UK break for me.

We had an amazing time - perfect place and perfect setting ! I was with my three children , partners and grandchildren ( 10 of us ) and it was ideal with plenty of space for everyone ! The kids loved the games room , garden and the animals ! Rocky the pony , the chickens , the stray cat and the cows became great friends ! The big kids loved the hot tub and grandma loved the swinging seat !! Everything you could have wanted was there and Alan couldn’t have been more helpful ! Even the weather was great ! Didn’t want to leave and would certainly love to go back again !

Excellent accommodation. Nothing too much trouble for the owner of the Long Barn. Four en-suites was great to have. Also spotlessly clean and warm hot tub.
