    Absolutely incredible place where we had the best weekend! Wonderful host, perfect house for a group and the hot tub was fab. We’ll definitely be back and we’ll bring the children because the games room is a child’s dream. The local pub is worth a visit as is Hetty’s tea room. Can’t wait to stay again!

    Absolutely stunning barn! It was very clean, spacious and Alan was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very elegantly decorated and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was perfect and the hot tub was very hot and clean. Our stay was absolutely fabulous and everything i had wished for; it was the perfect birthday. Thank you very much. We will definitely be visiting again in the future.

    We had a fabulous time at Long Barn. A very warm welcome from Alan who had trimmed up for us ready for Christmas. Waking up to a dusting of snow was just the cherry on the cake. Very well appointed accommodation and very well equipped, the ONLY thing lacking was a sharp knife, but had we asked I’m sure Alan would have obliged!

    The barn was wonderful for our group of 4 couples. It was clean and with 4 large ensuite bedrooms gave all of us privacy. The lounge was a lovely large open plan area which we loved in the evenings while we laughed and chatted about our day. The kitchen was huge and very well equipped and allowed us to sit together every morning while we cooked a full English to sit and eat together. Alan was an excellent host - so friendly and full of helpful information. We will be back

    As a venue for a family get together this was perfect. Every bedroom was ensuite ensuring no waits for showers etc. The kitchen was well equipped and the large dining table made for a great family gathering place. Alan, our host, could not have been more helpful, and the provision of the hot tub and games room meant that the 3 youngsters in the party were very impressed!
