“Wow we loved it here!”

This cottage is absolutely perfect for a relaxing break away. Highlights were the beautiful countryside, hot tub with lovely views, comfy big bed, large roll top bath to name a few but everything about this place was first class. We even had a game of tennis. Ros organised my partner a birthday surprise and nothing was too much trouble.
We will no doubt be back not only because we loved our time there so much but because it will be hard to find another place quite like it.

We are so thrilled that you found Willows Barn so "perfect" for your relaxing break. Willows Barn sits in its own acre of private garden within our secure grounds (great for those who like their cars to be off road and behind gates overnight).

We are so pleased that you found everything "first class" and love that you had fun on the tennis court.

It was our pleasure to organise birthday treats for your partner as we do love planning a surprise! We'd love to welcome you both back - anytime - and thankyou so much for your thoughtful review. with kind regards Rosalind and Kevin.

“A Perfectly Relaxing Week”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We've just returned from a week of peace and calm at this delightful cottage.

Everything was just as the website promised, true five-star accommodation.

The only noise we heard was that of the birds' chorus and the occasional, muted 'crump' of a bird-scarer cartridge from the adjacent farm - such a change from our Surrey home. The weather was perfect for exploring the area's many charms; the cottage was all to a very high standard: plenty of hot water for the shower (rare in some rented cottages) and a comfortable bed (also not as common as you'd wish/expect).

The warm weather meant we didn't have the chance to use the central log-burner. Still, we can always join the ranks of repeat visitors . . .

We are so pleased that you both had a wonderful week of peace and serenity at Willows Barn and thankyou for your review. The Barn has also been painted since your stay and the hedges their second trim of the year as we do like to keep the barn and the grounds looking 5star for our guests. We are thrilled that you loved the copious hot water - Willows Barn has "constant on-demand" hot water for guests needs and the superking size bed has a wonderful mattress and bedding and so we are really glad that you slept so well. We'd love to have you back so please do return anytime. We enjoyed meeting and chatting to you. All our best wishes.

“Very comfortable, peaceful and romantic place to stay”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We were very pleased with this well equipped, comfortable and homely rental. From the welcome touches of chilled wine waiting in the fridge, home made cakes and biscuits - to the huge bed, lovely hot-tub, log burner and peaceful location - everything was perfect with our stay.

Liked best: Sitting in the hot-tub at the end of the day
Liked least: Shower room was a bit of a squeeze and could do with a better positioned mirror for shaving. Minor quibbles really.

“A Perfect Romantic Honeymoon Location!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We travelled here on our honeymoon just wanting to spend time together on a quiet holiday. Couldnt have been better! Host family were welcoming and excited to see us but completely let us have the break we wanted. Could have spent the whole week in the barn! Comfortable, beautiful location, quiet and secluded, yet still plenty to do if needed! Want to go back there every year now as we could not have asked for anything more perfect! Great for taking bikes along too as we could go on some nice bike rides!

Website does not do this amazing property justice!!!

We are always so thrilled to have honeymooners at Willows Barn and we feel honoured to host the start of couples lives together (we also love receiving bookings from "minimooners" who book a short stay after their wedding before their actual honeymoon). Willows Barn is so private and romantic and couples are able to enjoy each other's company without the hustle/bustle of everyday life. Thrilled you loved your stay and thankyou for recommending us to your family - we were delighted to receive their booking.

“Amazing place to stay”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A massive thanks to ros and kev for providing such a lovely place to stay. Felt just like being at home. Bed and sofa were so comfortable. Arrived to a bottle of wine, biscuits and cakes with was such a lovely touch after travelling. Amazing log fire to sit and watch and hot tub to spend evenings in. Under floor heating throughout adds extra heat. Looking forward to returning later this year.
