Amazing homely barn stay
The home is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and so homely! The area is a quiet area, it is a barn amongst a lovely quiet plot, which means the views driving in are drop dead gorgeous. Catch the sunset from the house too, its beautiful. The people there are so warm and friendly too. They really treat you like its a home. Rooms are so homely and well prepared and clean. Absolutely loved it here.
