"Fantastic place to go"
We stayed at this property for a week at the end of October2014. The property is fantastic with absolutely everything you could need. When we arrived everything was ready for us with fresh flowers in the kitchen and a bottle of champagne. There were 10 of us staying at the property with age ranges from 9 years, teens and up to 80 years and everyone agreed what a great place to stay it was. Paul the owner is very friendly and offered good advice on places to visit. He also visited the property just after we arrived to show us how everything worked and told us that if we had any problems we could give him a ring. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone, it is a fantastic 'get away from everything place' with no other houses near by, just fields and open countryside. The log burner was a great asset to the property in the evening and the children loved the 'snug room' to go and chill in. Thanks once again for a fantastic time and we look forward to booking again in the future.

"Luxury in a stunning location with great walks"
The attention to detail in this modern conversion and plenty of space gave us the perfect last weekend of half term break . There was every type of indoor entertainment and WiFi for news and information but then we were so lucky with the weather that we were able to enjoy the walks and views all around us .

"Had a fantastic holiday staying at Mutton Barn. Wonderful accomodation"
Mutton Barn is a beautiful place to stay. The location is fantastic with spectacular views out of every window. The Barn is equipped to a very high standard with everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. 10 of us stayed and the accommodation was spacious and comfortable. Paul was really helpful and we would definitely hope to return in the future.
Thank you for a great holiday!

"Excellent accommodation surrounded by beautiful countryside"
My husband and I stayed at Mutton Barn for three nights in September. The quality of accommodation was excellent; a large secure garden in which our dog could happily run around, a delightful master suite and all the mod-cons you would wish for.
The local area is fantastic for walking, each day we planned a circa 4 hour walk which took us across beautiful countryside (we were fortunate with great weather) finishing off with a pub dinner then back to the barn to put our feet up in front of the fire.
A big thank you to Paul for being so welcoming and for providing such wonderful accommodation.
I would highly recommend Mutton Barn and I am hopeful that we will make a return visit again.

"Mutton Barn is the bomb!"
What a gorgeous house on a wonderful piece of property. Once you find it and pull up to the house, you will find a beautiful traditional looking "barn" made out of red brick. So beautiful. The landscape is well taken care of and just adorable.
Once you get into the house, it is absolutely modern and very spacious. I had the opportunity to enjoy the Master bedroom which was very large and the bathroom was very modern and spacious as well.
The kitchen was well equipped with silverware, utensils, pots, etc. Everything you need to make a good dinner. We took advantage of that and it worked out great.
It was a mystery on how to set the temperature in the house so definitely ask Paul when you check in how to do that.
Whatever you need, just ask the owner Paul. He is extremely friendly and forthcoming and he was very responsive to any of our requests. He also helped us arranged some activities we wanted to do including horse back riding and clay shooting.
Overall, this setting is absolutely perfect if you like to relax and enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Stratford on Avon (where Shakespeare was born) is only about 10 miles away. Grocery store was about 3 miles away.
Great property to talk nice long walks!
Paul, thanks for everything. Our stay was fantastic at the Mutton Barn! We loved it.

"Idyllic, relaxing and comfy country retreat"
Our family recently spend a week at Mutton Barn and had a wonderful time! 6 adults had plenty of space to rest in comfort, cook great meals, and explore the surrounding countryside. Paul (and dog Molly) were gracious hosts :) He was extremely helpful in arranging some outdoor activities (horseback riding, clay shooting) and also checked up on us on a regular basis to make sure everything was ok. The house itself is very clean and well organized. All amenities one would require for a comfortable stay is available. The immediate surrounding area is perfect for exploration on foot. Right on the Heart of England path, it is lush English countryside. The blackberries this year were incredible! All in all, Mutton Barn was a perfect home-away-from-home. Thank you Paul D!

"Mutton Barn - Excellent"
This was our second stay at this amazing holiday cottage and it was just as we remembered; full of light with fantastic views from every room, exceptionally comfortable and exceptionally clean .... just perfect. On arrival we were delighted by the wonderful goodies that the generous owner had left for us in the fridge and store cupboard. We enjoyed many of the marvellous walks starting from the gate of the property and hope to return again as soon as possible.

"A great family birthday treat in a lovely setting"
We ( the Barton and Modern families and all their partners) have just had a lovely weekend together at Mutton Barn to celebrate a 60th birthday) the barn is very well designed and as one of our party has mobility problems it was very good to have a large downstairs bedroom for him with his own bathroom attached. The two lounge / sitting areas were also a great success at keeping apart grumpy uncles and riotous toddlers. The kitchen and dining area were lovely and we had everything we needed to produce some great meals together. The bedrooms are very well fitted with lovely comfortable beds and furniture, everything you need was there. The outside space is also lovely with furniture for us all in a party of 8. We really appreciated the welcome gifts left by the owner for our arrival, and the beautiful fresh flowers in the room. All of us including our dog enjoyed the freedom of walking through the fields and woods.and are hoping to return to the barn again sometime next year.

"Amazing place for a family birthday party"
Thank you so much to Paul for all his thoughtful touches and provisions on arrival. A fantastic house in a beautiful location, really well-equipped (and I am quite fussy!) the perfect place for my mother-in-law's birthday weekend. The kids loved picking blackberries in the fields and seeing baby deer. Stratford and Warwick castle both with in easy distance.
