Amazing Long Weekend
Maria was such a pleasure to deal with when booking, and the delicious platter, wine and roaring fire on arrival was just perfect. The cottage is absolutely stunning, the images don't do it justice. The outdoor area would be amazing in summer, the kitchen is well stoked with everything you need and the cottage its self inside is huge. The friendly chickens are a great addition as well, we loved feeding them. 10/10, best long weekend we have had.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at Barrow Cottage - it was a gorgeous, warm, relaxing weekend - a haven of peace in our normal busy lives. Everything was so cosy from the doonas on the beds, the two wood burning fires, to the heater in the bathroom. I wish I could live in long weekend bliss forever. Thank you also for the gorgeous treats you left out for us - just the way to kick off the weekend. We will be back for sure...

This is one of the best resourced and stocked places I have stayed in. Come prepared for a dinner in. The kitchen is generously stocked with all manner of gadgets and equipment, including a slow combustion stove, an outdoor wood fired pizza oven and weber bbq. Just kick back and relax with a good red in front of the fire. Lovely

Had a great stay, the pictures on the site really don't do the cottage justice. Beautiful stone and woodwork throughout, amazing fireplace, and a great fenced in garden our dog could explore. The owners were extremely friendly and easy to deal with. We arrived late on a Friday night, and lights were on, the fire going, and a lovely cheese plate and bottle of wine waiting for us. Was a great experience, have already started planning our next visit

Touched My Heart!!!!!
Barrow Cottage touched my heart like no other! We've stayed at a lot of cottages but I had tears in my eyes within 3 steps. Maria had lit the fire for our arrival and the cottage was immaculate, cosy, comfortable, a slice of heaven that my other half had to drag me away from.......if they ever sell this place I want to be first in line!
