A pastoral paradise that your hosts share by setting up night cameras and bat detectors – great for children. In the lovely restored barn is this ground floor studio for two. There’s masses of space for young families to spread out, with separate beds and cots for babies and children, and it’s even super for the less mobile – no steps, wet room shower, wide doorways and ramps. Outside, an old bread oven is used for pizzas and the well still provides water for the garden – there’s more than five acres to explore. You’ll have different picnic areas to choose from, and your own patio and barbecue for dining out on balmy evenings – cook for yourselves or enjoy the occasional delicious dinner prepared by your hosts. They’ll even rustle up breakfast for you if you like and will leave a hamper on arrival with some treats for your first morning. Views are magnificent, the saltwater pool is enticing, the loudest noise is the frogs on the pond, and you might spot Oska the softie Newfoundland dog pottering about. Simon and Noella, endlessly thoughtful, will give you a memorable time.
