We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Old Parlour and I have to say that it was everything I was hoping for and a little more! It is quite tucked away and it took us a little while to find it...but when we did we were so pleased to see it! It was just like in the pictures along country lane next to a large farm house. When we arrived Rachel was there to greet us and she showed us around and gave us a very warm welcome. Inside the barn is cosy and very tastefully done in a country sheek style! Every little detail was thought out and there was everything you need for an escape to the country. The views from the upstairs window is gorgeous and the small courtyard garden was divine ... private and perfect for sitting out and looking at the stars! The place is so quiet and there is no light pollution which makes for the perfect conditions! There are 2 bedrooms the first night we slept in the downstairs bedroom - the bed was very comfy but a little too small for us as we are used to a king size bed. So the next two nights we slept upstairs in the attic room and the bed was much bigger and even more comfortable! There is a large sofa which was great for lounging of an evening with a glass of prosecco! The kitchen had everything you could need for breakfast and simple dinners - although we did not cook once for dinner as there were so many fabulous little county pubs close by to choose from!
On the Saturday Rachel cooked a full breakfast and pancakes and delivered them to our door, which was a little added luxury!
Rachel could not help enough and she was so friendly and gave us some great tips about local places!
There is a lovely log burner unfortunately the weather was far too glorious to use it but we will definitely be planning a return to these barns in the winter so that we can do country walks and cosy nights by the fire! We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a country escape away from the world with a touch of luxury!
