"Brilliant for families with small children"

"Great barn in middle of fields - brilliant"

Away from it all was ideal to encourage our daughter to revise but great for walking along Grand Union Canal, visit pubs, drive to battle site etc. Barn well converted and kitted out.

"Really a most delightful barn, light spacious and tastefully done."

The Victorian Barn was a lovely place in a field away from it all with lovely views of the surrounding country. Very good for walking and close to the canal. The 2 mile walk along the towpath to Foxton locks was very pleasant.There were plenty of good eating places close by in a short car journey. Would recommend The Staff of Life at Mowsley as one.
Would love to go back again especially when everywhere was really green. Sarah and Michael were very helpful and most pleasant.
