"Nice place, shame about the owners reluctance to give deposits back!!"

Jurston Barn at first glance is lovely- However the windows are NOT child friendly and in fact are DANGEROUS for toddlers. They are not lockable and are in easy reach of small fingers! The pool table … More

Thank you for both of your reviews. I regret to say that there are a number of inaccuracies in them both.
Firstly, ALL of the windows are lockable. Secondly, I check the hot tub chemical levels daily (all were correct) and, for hygiene reasons, guests are asked to shower before entering the hot tub. Thirdly, accidents happen and I have excellent cleaning staff who report any breakages and damages to me directly. They document the damage on each changeover to ensure that repairs/replacements are in place before the next guests arrive.
Also, you telephoned me directly to make the booking and, like many property owners, I pay a fixed fee, not commission, to Holiday Lettings.
Lastly, we are very proud that Jurston Barn has met and exceeded the exacting and rigorous standards necessary to achieve Quality In Tourism/Visit England's highest accolade, a Five Star Gold Award, for the third year running.
