Guest Reviews

Spacious barn accommodation in a lovely location. Plenty of room and Fiona was a lovely host. Went out of her way with some special touches. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend

Ideally situated for the beach and ‘’Constable country’’. Very comfortable barn conversion close to pubs, Tesco Express and railway station

Could not fault the property at all. Absolutely spotlessly clean. Well maintained property in a lovely location with beautiful views

The Hayloft is the perfect place for a family break. It is well equipped for family living right down to a coffee machine and a supply of those things you might forget, like dishwasher tablets. Fiona is the perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble, she is friendly but respectful and her communication response was excellent.

Great location and lovely accommodation. Very clean. We had a great time and will hopefully go back.

The best place we’ve stayed this year not to be over looked.
