Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Orchard Barn is a great place to stay for a large group. It is very specious and comfortable and even though there were 19 of us, we never felt crowded. There were other house parties going on in the other properties but we didn’t hear any noise and felt comfortably isolated. Really enjoyed our time there despite the rainy weather and would definitely book it for a large group again. Dec 2011.
  2. We booked Barn cottage so that we could spend our 30th Wedding anniversary with our family 4 children and their partners and 8 grandchildren not to mention my mother, we could not have picked a more ideal place. Beautiful setting with fabulous indoor and outdoor space for all. May 2011.
  3. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It really suited our requirements for a large family Christmas gathering with plenty of space and good toilet/shower facilities with the wood burning fires helping to create a warm homely enviroment. Dec 2010.
  4. Size of lounges and kitchen suited our large party well. May 2010.
  5. Although accommodating other groups on the site, we felt completely private and enjoyed the large outdoor space which was dedicated for our use. We enjoyed the open plan arrangement of the barn downstairs - lots of places for a large group to disperse to for different activities. Aug 2009.
  6. Good size for a large party, plenty of bathrooms/shower rooms. July 2009.
  7. After a rainy summer we were all wondering how 20 of us would get on in a cottage in September which was bound to also be rainy. However, the sun shone brilliantly, the kids had a wonderful time in the garden on the swings and slide and there was plenty of room inside in the evenings for us all to relax!. It was more perfect than I had dreamed when I booked it a year ago. Sept 2008.
  8. We found it an excellent place for a large group of adults and young children. March 2008.
  9. Fantastic property, helpful owners, beautiful surroundings, couldn’t ask for more. Aug 2008.
  10. Having 3 living rooms meant we could all do different things. Plenty of bathrooms very important for getting so many people ready and out in the morning - especially teenage girls! Beautiful view, very helpful owner. Fantastic holiday. We are looking to book for next year. Aug 2008.
  11. We had a fantastic time at Orchard Barn. The whole place felt like a second home and all 21 of us enjoyed every moment, including such fab weather. Oct 2007.
  12. The internal layout has been very well planned with the various lounges and bedrooms providing total flexibility in accommodating over 20 people in the same building. It is particularly useful to have a ground floor en-suite bedroom for the use of disabled guests. May 2006.
  13. Orchard Barn is the ideal venue for a group holiday. The garden is excellent for children and the three living rooms a real bonus. May 2006.
  14. Enjoyed by everyone in the party - all 21 of us! Feb 2006.
