Just returned from a stay at Jimmys barn and cannot recommend strongly enough. The barn has everything you could ever wish for in such a peaceful setting. It is really comfy and feels like a home from home. We took some lovely long walks. There is a lovely pub not far and it is super dog friendly. We will definitely be returning.

A perfect holiday property. The barn is very well equipped and in the most beautiful location. We loved the stillness and silence - no strimmers, lawn mowers or traffic noise.

Be aware that the property is in the middle of a field and a car is essential for access. Once there it is actually only a short walk to a couple of the neighbouring villages where there are pubs.
