Well what can I say a fabulous, well situated barn. Yes as in other review the adjoining properties do prevent you from opening your curtains, but to be honest the best views are to the front of the property anyway. This did not spoil our stay at all. We have enjoyed having the views from the living area and the easy access to the surrounding areas. We brought our dog Poppy, who tried to make friends with Nell (the farm dog.) eventually by the end of the week they became good friends. I would say if you are going to look for fault your going to find them. Yes there are small things, but nothing that either spoils the holiday or hinders the beautiful experience or scenery of the cottage.
