“Tranquil”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

A fantastic property for any kind of family friends get together. We had so much fun at owl barn be it cooking, dancing, chatting in the hottub. There were plans to go out and do something within the local area but everyone was so relaxed and there was far more space than we anticipated, that we didn't leave all weekend. Just perfect. Each bedroom is a bit different but equally lovely. And the power shower wet room is the best I've experienced.

“Stunning barn and beautiful location.”
Reviewed June 12, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The Owl Barn is just as amazing as it looks in the pictures. It was the perfect place for a girly hen do weekend of afternoon tea, crafting, country walks and cocktails. Lots of open space in the barn was great for games. We had a lovely time in the hot tub and enjoying the weather in the large garden. The kitchen was a joy to cook in and the open plan layout meant the cooks never felt locked away. A welcome hamper with pink bubbly was a nice touch too. We were only there for a weekend and were generally too busy talking to do much sightseeing but from the drive down we could tell that the barn would be a good base for exploring the local area by car. I'm already looking for excuses to book another visit!

“Stunning Barn, perfect for Girls Weekend Away in Style”
Reviewed May 2, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Thank you for such a lovely weekend. Owl Barn was the perfect size for 10 ladies to enjoy a hen weekend in style. The decor and rooms were gorgeous and were far superior than in the photos - everyove was really impressed. Fully stocked kitchen and the welcome pack including bubbles and all the little extras ( store ingredients, fluffy towels, toiletries) made it more than the standard self catering break.
The hot tub in the large garden was ideal after a days (slightly rainy) cycling cider tour although it had cooled down on the Sunday.
The kitchen and dining room was perfect for our dinner party and the simply beautiful upstairs with squashy sofas was perfect for our party ..and relaxing. We all said we would love to bring family/friends and come again!

“Magical Christmas at Owl Barn”
Reviewed February 28, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We stayed at Owl Barn over Xmas 2012 and it was lovely. A beautiful barn with lots of 'wow' appeal, extremely quiet area and lovely surroundings. We stayed with our children (age 4 and 7) and our friends and their children (age 3,5 and 8) and we had a magical time. The barn is a good size, not so big that it feels uncosy, but large enough for all of us. The wooden train set kept our chidlren entertained for hours as they roamed around upstairs in the beautiful lounge area. They loved all the games that were there and even with their Christmas gifts opened they still played with the train set! The owners had left some really thoughtful touches around for the children (snall Christomas tree to decorate, Christmas toys on the pillows) and the Christmas tree was beautiful. The hamper we had was really wonderful too with homeade chutneys and jams, crackers, chocolates, luxury biscuits etc, all these touches make a real difference.

If you want to have some time away as a large group, with friends or family then this barn is perfect. Beautiful finishes, beds are huge and so comfortable, the bedding is soft and beautifully clean and presented.

My only gripes (and they are small ones) is that the washing machine was a bit temperamental and we really did need a larger fridge to accomodate our Christmas shopping for a week for 9 people. Also a clothes drier to use inside would be helpful.

Hot tub is superb!
