"A beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful village"

The cottage has been beautifully done, felt like a real treat to stay here. It felt very tranquil opening out onto the owners wonderful garden. We had two small boys with us who loved it and didn't want to leave! Jan and David were very welcoming and kindly provided us with some thoughtful extras such as some toys for the boys to play with. We had a lovely time here and would highly recommend the Garden Barn.
