This was our first visit to Glynn Barton Cottages and it certainly will NOT be our last! After reading various reviews on Trip Advisor, Netmums and their own website, my expectations about Glynn Barton were high but I can honestly say they were exceeded in every sense! We stayed in the Mill House Cottage which is a stunning toddler-friendly cottage with fabulous views to the fields where the animals are grazing. The attention to detail in the cottages are wonderful, especially the Egyptian cotton linen on the super comfortable beds! The on-site facilities for children are absolutely brilliant. They're all safe, exceptionally clean and all geared towards babies, toddlers and children enjoying themselves. They've even considered the parents by offering an on-site shop where you can buy the most delicious home-made meals to save mum or dad cooking!! Our 16 month old son had the best time ever with so many activities to choose from. The owners, Steve & Shirley are quite simply brilliant. They cannot do enough for their guests and they are fantastic with the children, especially at animal feeding time. A wonderful couple and a very special place. Needless to say we will be back!
If you have young children who like to race about and see animals, ride on toy cars, play in a soft play area, use a huge trampoline, swim in an indoor pool and have the best holiday then look no further. Steve and Shirley have created a family haven where the parents have a wonderful time because the kids are always happy.
Glynn Barton Cottages have everything you'll need for an amazing stay. Cots, high chairs, toys, stair gates, kids plates and cutlery etc, a hand blender in the kitchen.. parents know this is great thinking. Our Cottage was Mill House at the end of the row and had lovely views over the animal fields each morning as they woke up and waited to be fed.
It is the small touches like the animal feeding weekdays and that each child gets to find an egg and take it home to eat.... They go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and special and I will not give everything away but try it as it is a wonderful place.
It is also about 30 mins drive form a lovely easy beach for some time in the sea and there is a restaurant and shop there so again fantastic for families.
The cottages are all extremely stylish and comfortable. Sitting out in the garden with a glass of wine after the kids are asleep watching the sky and birds settle actually feels like a holiday for the oldies too. You can sit and read a book whilst your children tear around the play area with slides and swings and that is the joy of Glynn Barton, everyone gets a holiday.
You can have food delivered although there is an excellent Morrison's a 10 minute drive through bluebell woods. If you need a night off they also stock some dishes from Cook which is great thinking again.
The number of repeat clients should say how good it is and everyone re-booked when we were there and we will be too asap.
It is wonderful!
