"Fantastic facilities in a beautiful setting"

When we arrived we were blown away by the beautiful countryside setting. Despite only being an hour-hour and a half from London it feels incredibly peaceful. The gardens are wonderful with a huge pond with hundreds of fish and various other animals such as minature horses and even reindeer!

In terms of the accomodation itself, the facilities are fantastic. The Granary was incredibly spacious with a large lounge and kitchen area, three good size bedrooms which are all en-suite and an additional bathroom. As well as this, the seperate games room was fantastic with a pool table, table football table, air hockey table and darts which were all free to use.

Despite mainly going for a peaceful break there was plenty to do nearby - the pub within a 10 minute walk did some great food and you are within driving distance of Cambridge, Bury-St-Edmunds as well as beautiful country houses, churches and cathedrals.

The owners were great, showing us around the facilities without ever intruding on our privacy.

I highly recommend the Granary and would love to come back - maybe to stay in one of the Yurts!

"Everything you could want"

we were a group of 3 couples staying in The Granary and we could not fault it. Very Clean, well equipped, spaceous and well thought out to the finest detail. Brian was very helpful and even when we decided to stay an extra night no issue was made. The local pub at the top of the road had live bands and the local spa was a hit with the girls. Clare itself has a stunning country park and some great little antique and boutique shops if you want a stroll.

I could not recommend this place enough.

"Amazing..... Attention to detail second to none"

We were looking for a relaxing few days away..... Following much research on the internet we came across The Granary, from that moment it did not fail to impress!

The booking process was seamless, the welcome on arrival was friendly and informative, the the granary itself was amazing, with such high level of detail and finish. The grounds that the The Granary are set in are lovely and it was good to be able to enjoy the outdoors, in such a lovely/picturesque part of the country.

The Granary was ideal for our needs and I would highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for a let property in the Clare area, you will NOT be disappointed........
