“Idyllic country retreat - didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at the Barn for almost a month while waiting for our new house to be completed in the nearby town. The Barn was beautifully furnished, fully equipped and really comfortable and we loved the surrounding peaceful countryside and lack of noisy neighbours. The lane leading up to the Barn was visited by a pair of tiny bunny rabbits each day and we often had pheasants inspecting the house. We also enjoyed the flock of sheep that ventured up to the front door on occasion. As for Internet connection, I managed to work each day using an EE dongle and the reception was better than in town. Even though I had to drive into town several times each day for school runs, the drive was really beautiful and an experience in itself. It didn't take more than 7 minutes each way.
I would most happily return to the Barn for a holiday, just to enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

Liked best: The pretty country decor and how fully equipped the place was - I could even bake scones
Liked least: The lack of a bath; we prefer bathing to showering.

“Total isolation”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

When we arrived, after looking for it for a while(don't be put off, signs are not too welcome in theddingworth ) I was scared of the isolation, but after 2 weeks I wondered if we could have stayed for a lot longer. After 5 days of travelling everyday to use the internet In the Sugarloaf at Market Harborough, I discovered that the ee (orange) network had great coverage, a ten pound dongle from Argos and I was completely contented!!
It was a great place to stay, we would thoroughly recommend the Barn.

“Comfortable and Quiet”
Reviewed 4 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The Victorian Barn is the ideal getaway for anyone wanting absolute peace and quiet, and is comfortably and well-equipped for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens).

The barn has been renovated and finished to a very high standard and we'd definitely consider returning.

“Perfect place, perfect setting, perfect holiday”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Spotlessly clean and had everything we needed plus more
Lovely big walk in shower and comfortable beds
For us it was just what we wanted, really quiet and peaceful, lovely setting
Owners were very nice and left us alone but when I phoned to say the DVD wasn't working Sarah brought a replacement within half an hour, now that's what I call service
We will definitely go back
