Booked Garth barns for my husbands 60th We were 20 adults an 5 children
Absolutely fabulous accommodation and fully equipped. Spent a lot of time in the lake swimmining an canoeing due to hot weather. Toasted marshmallows on the camp fire. Steaks on the barbecue. Great fun doing the treasure hunt arranged by hosts John an Veronica.
No negatives at all
Nice house but Dog Smell. The house advertises no pets allowed but they do allow dogs as we found some parts of the house smelt like wet dog (obviously been in the lake) and one of the party who was allergic to dogs couldn't stop sneezing so was a bit annoyed as we were told NO pets allowed. The house its self is very nice and well equipped but wanted to make sure others knew of this.
We have just returned from a fantastic week with all of the family and we can not praise Garth Barns enough.
The accommodation in both barns is of the highest quality, they are perfectly equipped very comfortable and very clean with superb kitchens, dining areas and bedrooms and bathrooms.
The location is fantastic and the facilities are second to none with a pool room, table tennis and gym and sauna but the best is outside with a lovely pond for the kids to catch newts and toads, a large covered BBQ and camp fire, but topping it all is the lake for swimming and boating.
Veronica and John are terrific hosts and nothing is too much trouble.
We have stayed in many nice large holiday homes with the family in the last 10 years but Garth Barns is exceptional and clearly stands out as the best.
Many thanks to Veronica and John from us all for helping us to enjoy another great family get together, hopefully we will be returning next year.
