Full-height ceilings continue throughout the property, adding charm and character.

The lanes are narrow so walking can be difficult.. The Barn is perfectly safe for dogs with gated parking and secure garden... highly recommend the roast at the village pub. (But dont go to late they sell out) .. the farm shop sells everything so no need to travel to supermarkets...

Quince Barn is ideally situated for a quiet holiday in the countryside but not far from lots of visitor attractions. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would recommend to all. The barn is well equipped, very warm and clean. The night skies were unbelievable with no light pollution on a clear starry night.

Fantastic stay, exactly what we wanted. The barn has plenty of dog walks outside the door which meant we did not have to get in the car throughout our stay. The welcome package, as mentioned by other reviewers, was top quality and very welcome. The accommodation provided everything you need and is very well presented.
