Guest Reviews

"Fantastic Accommodation - We were a large group of 12 staying for a weekend hen do - the accommodation was PERFECT. We had a party room complete with bar, two kitchens and two living rooms. I stayed in the downstairs living room which converted into a bedroom thanks to two double sofa beds. In the July heat it was the perfect room as two sets of French doors out into the gardens allowed for a lovely breeze. We were also spoiled with our own hot tub and we were right next door to the pool house which housed a large pool complete with a shower and a sauna. There was also a lovely looking play area for children with swings and slides and a games house which we didn’t get to see up close but looked very accommodating. I chatted with the owner who couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful - she came over to tell us about a ladies night at the local pub (about a mile and a half away but a nice walk apparently) and let us coo over her dog :) The facility stands in some gorgeous countryside with cute villages only short drives away. We passed lots of stunning thatched cottages and riverside hamlets on the way in. The way the house is laid out is perfect for large family gatherings - you can section out the upstairs and downstairs if wanted and in our case the two kitchens meant that the mess from dinner downstairs the night before didn’t stop us cooking (and making a new mess!) in the upstairs kitchen for breakfast the next day. There are plenty of toilet facilities, a downstairs shower room serviced us sleeping in the front room and there was an upstairs bathroom plus en-suites. I honestly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this wonderful facility to anyone and plan a return trip as soon as possible!" Stayed 6 - 8 July 2018.

"Highly recommended. We spent such a lovely week in Beatrice House. There were 10 of us and there was ample space for us all not to feel cramped. The accommodation was clean and really comfortable. The pool is great; clean and warm and the children loved swimming in it every day. The sauna was an added bonus for us adults too. The farm is in a beautiful location and very quiet and peaceful. We will be recommending The Victorian Barn to friends and family. Thank you for having us" Stayed Easter 2018.

"Just wanted to drop a line after our glorious weekend to say thanks for having us. We thoroughly enjoyed the excellent location, scenic location, amazing facilities and, of course, the weather was brilliant. My sister had a fab birthday and the accommodation layout worked perfectly. The little ones really loved the swimming pool and the playground. We would definitely recommend your place and return again. Many thanks again Kathryn and family".

"We stayed in Leopold House with 4 generations to accommodate...grandparents, teenager, young children and parents. The house gave us the space and privacy so we all enjoyed our stay. The pool house is beautiful with a lovely little gym and sauna. Our personal hot tub was lush. The sunsets are amazing and the hosts are really lovely. Will definitely come back again. Thank you from Kate stayed 3 - 10 August 2018".

"We stayed here with my young son (1 and 4 months) just recently. Before we set off the owners contacted us and offered us a free upgrade from the Byre to the Granary. On arrival we were welcomed with spacious and clean accommodation. The rooms were large and we found the kitchen to have all you would expect in terms of facilities and utensils from a self catering establishment. The location is beautiful and you can set off in all directions to attractions. The onsite gym and pool were appreciated, especially as the weather looked like it may be unkind, although this did not turn out to be the case. I loved the fishing lakes, (free to guests) where I caught several sizeable carp and was fortunate to also catch a very large carp in the silverfish lake, possibly 12 lb + I think it was maybe transferred there via the close by specimen lake. In my excitement I forgot to return it to its correct home! We went to the Ibberton for a superb evening meal and there are many other good pubs close by. We found the owners to be welcoming and helpful. We will be back". Mr C from London, stayed April.

"This is a fabulous place in a beautiful countryside setting. The apartments (we were in the Byre) are simple yet stylish with plenty of room for a 4 person family and contain everything you need. The grounds are great for young families - a perfect pool, good playground and a lovely walk up and around the lakes. We'd love to come back – Stayed 27 – 31 August 2018".

"Beautiful apartment in a beautiful setting. We loved our little getaway here. The pool was definitely a selling point for us, so clean and relaxed. We would definitely recommend for families. Thanks again for a great stay, Bella and family stayed 30 July - 3 August 2018.

"We first visited the Dairy House Farm in 2005 when our children were young, have booked many holidays with them since and now in 2018 we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here with our adult children and partners. We all had such a lovely relaxing weekend, swimming, fishing, hot tub time, lovely cottage, we stayed in Plumtree Cottage 22 - 25 June 2018 with its open plan down stairs, this was great for our party of 6. Penny and Claire are both great people. We will be booking again. Monkey world is a great day out, The Fox pub in Ansty is very nice lovely garden, The Crown pub in Marnhull has great food lovely Sunday carvery, when you are driving down the lanes look out for the little tables with eggs, Fruit and plants for sale".

"What a find! I have returned from a fishing/ family holiday at The Victorian Barn. We had a brilliant time. I enjoyed fishing with my son while my daughter and wife enjoyed the pool which was very close to our property. The lakes were lovely and peaceful and we caught some big fish, which pleased my son. We have already booked for next year!" Stayed November travelled with family.

"We had a lovely time and my husband enjoyed his birthday treat. We loved the accommodation we stayed in, The Stable, very clean with views to the lakes and Bulbarrow Hill. We also enjoyed the swimming pool, hot tub and my husband and son used the gym. Obviously my husband enjoyed the fishing lakes!!!! And my daughter enjoyed drawing/painting the surrounding landscape. On a scale of 1-10, we would give a 10 as we had a brilliant two days stay and would definitely visit again. Thank you once again for your great hospitality and lovely cottage, and surroundings." Best wishes From the Crabb family.
