This barn conversion with good views gets plenty of repeat bookings. Room for 6 plus a baby. Ruth Boswell told me that the barn is very family friendly rather than chic accommodation, and looking at the prices I see that it is very competitively priced. The highest charge in the school holidays is just £599 and as low as £270 in low season. Babysitting on offer and stair gate, highchair and cot on request. Bed linen is included in the price but towels are extra. Some electricity (90 units) is included in the rental then charged.
