Absolutely beautiful place to stay, exactly what we were looking for to spend the weekend away from the city. Caroline is a very friendly and welcoming person, it was a pleasure to meet her. The area offers fantastic walks and views, but to be honest Caroline's beautiful garden and fabulous viewing spot on the balcony made it unnecessary to leave anywhere. The best part is that it took us only 2,5h to drive from London. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a countryside stay.

Hi Caroline, thank you so much for our stay in your lovely barn and amazing gardens. It was perfect, thank you for letting us come with Jack, having the balcony to sit on while he slept, watching the beautiful view with a glass of wine was lovely. Thanks again and sorry we didn't get to say goodbye.x

This is a perfect place to get away and get out of the city. Caroline was so lovely and helpful with letting us know what was around to do in the local area. She was a perfect host and she has made a perfect get away.

This is the perfect place for those looking for a peaceful break away from the clutter of urbanity. The accommodation is very comfortable and although compact, is perfect for two guests and it's setting in the delightful garden and the lovely views from the landing made it an unforgettable experience. Caroline was the perfect host and the stay in her cottage was truly memorable.

I felt at home here from the very beginning of my 3 day stay. Everything was perfect - comfy, clean and warm. Caroline was the perfect host, she is a very caring, calm and delightful person to meet.

Caroline is a very welcoming and helpful host, and the barn is located in idyllic spot with views over the Severn Estuary. The room could have done with being a little warmer and cleaner, but it is a spacious room with lots of information on local attractions available to read.
