Allan and I just want to say a huge thank you not only to Tracey for her amazing review but to all our other guests who have given us fantastic - often 5 star - reviews. It is without a doubt a juggle managing about 100 animals and managing the holiday lets too - but luckily for us our human guests leave their barns in much cleaner condition than the animal residents do! ( And are much quieter too !!) Once again thank you for such kind comments as we are learning all the time what our guests need and want for a perfect holiday stay. Thank you !
