Fantastic location with amazing hot tub views. Thoughtful welcome pack, wine, biscuits on arrival, thank you! Extra towels for the hot tub a real bonus. Lots of kitchen equipment and a great set up. Cozy cottage but had everything. Fantastic walking opportunities and the south coast is a must visit whatever the weather. Definitely will go back!

Had a lovely week staying at this peaceful haven after almost 2 years without a holiday. It's well equipped and comfortable, with the hot tub especially welcome after a day exploring. Whilst it is out in the peace and quiet of the countryside, both north and south coast can be reached within an hour - we visited both as we had exceptional weather fRead moreor September. The Monument is close by and now it is back open I took the 232 steps to the top - great views on a clear day. Would happily return ! Hide

Lovely location just off the beaten track,far enough for peace and quiet, a car is a must to get around, though, Wellington Monument and local beauty spots are within easy walking distance, be prepared for a few hills to get the heart rate up! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in fact my 8 year old wanted to stay longer,

Lovely owners! Very very kind and helpful. We had an amazing time. It isn't in a convenient location, it is middle of nowhere so will need to drive everywhere. Property is smaller than it looks, but cosy and well laid out. Accessiblty- 2 steps to enter property but owner willing to build ramp. No shower seat and toilet very low with no rail. All grRead moreound level once up the 2 steps. Hot tub very difficult if less mobile due to a unstable step. Hide

We had a lovely holiday at Barncroft. The views were beautiful which was one of the main reasons we chose it, and we really enjoyed using the hot tub. The property is fairly small but perfectly formed, it was perfect for us.
