    An amazing Christmas holiday break. House inventory excellent, especially in the kitchen. Really appreciated the welcome basket full of coffee, tea, milk, sugar and shortbread. The festive decorations, all around the house, including a beautiful Christmas tree, and stockings on all the bedposts was heartwarming. Homely touches everywhere made Barn Owl retreat a real ‘home from home’ experience. A big thank you to the proprietors.

    Lovely well equipped cottage. Nice & quiet location. Easy to get to area's of interest. Only negative was that the hot water wasn't hot enough for a bath.
