"Superb! Sublime! The most beautiful property with everything we could wish for. Where to begin? The best barn conversion I've ever seen in a lovely setting. Wonderfully peaceful and totally relaxing and hardly a car going past. Beautiful interior, furnishings and fittings. Lots of lovely touches such as a food hamper, fresh flowers, and toilet products. Lots of sensible touches such as laminated instruction sheets and spare light bulbs. The children loved the space and running on the great expanse of grass in the charming garden. All ages loved it and had a wonderful time. We just cannot praise it highly enough. Thank you."
