FANTASTIC AND FULL OF CHARACTER by Andrew, October 2016 on February 10th 2017
We stayed at stone barn in September for a weekend getaway with the family to celebrate my sisters 40th. The barn itself is fantastic, full of character, well maintained and beautifully presented. It has a wonderful setting in amongst the countryside with some lovely walks in the nature trails which the kids loved. Elaine and Dick are around if you need them (in my case jump starting my car at 10pm - absolutely no bother to them and we were eternally grateful) but you are made to feel like the barn is yours for the time you are there. I would recommend this to anyone if you are looking for a weekend away with family or just somewhere to go to get away from everything: it's such a relaxing place to be.
