Hares Barn was a lovely Home away from home for the weekend. It was stunning, well furnished & well equipped, and close to all the areas we wished to visit. We loved the attention to detail in the accommodation- especially the Christmas trees & enjoyed the use of the hot tub.

Hares Barn exceeded our expectations - the decor and immaculate presentation gave a luxurious feel leading to a very relaxing weekend!

The barn is a really lovely mix of old and new. It was beautifully clean.

This was a fantastic cottage - beautifully furnished with a mix of old and modern that worked very well. It was very comfortable and clean. Very peaceful and quiet. Very welcoming owners who were always on hand and helpful without imposing. Enjoyed the hot tub and the visits from the chickens.

The Cottage is stylish and restored in a professional way. We didnt like that people walk very close to the guests terrace but nobody introduces themselves. There is no working internet and just a few tv Channels. No washing machine and just 1 Set of Towels per Person per week. Not so nice. The tub was great, really hot. No reason to return.
