We stayed at The Creamery for 3 nights this month. We chose the barns initially as there are not too many options for self catering in the area, but they also looked very well converted. We specifically wanted to be in driving distance of the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Tour and Whipsnade Zoo. We also could have taken our dog i believe if we had wanted but she went on a little holiday of her own instead!
The owners Emma and Owen were quick to respond to our booking and access to the barn was easy. They gave us good instructions to get there too.There are two other converted barns in the court yard, one being used whilst we were there although you wouldn't know as any noise did not travel.
The Creamery has two big double bedrooms, lovely bathroom with amazing power shower and a lounge/kitchen with extendable table depending on how many of you stay there. The kitchen was stocked with lovely little bits to help for when you first arrive, such as dishwasher tablets, oil, pepper, pint of milk etc. We did actually take some of those things with us so was a lovely suprise that they were already there. We cooked in twice and had a take away from the Chinese in the nearby village as well.
A cot and highchair were provided for our 10 month old for no extra cost which was excellent. Free wifi was great as well.
The only minor issues we had were that the hot water ran out on day two, but this was probably because all 4 adults had hot powerful showers in the morning, we put the dishwasher on and 2 had a bath in the evening! We had no problems the other times. The wifi also went off on the last day but we did have a major thunder storm in the night and we know something got hit by lightening and the electricity went off which probably reset the box and lastly one of the beds was quite noisy as it was iron!
All in all i would definately recommend these barns to stay in and would go again myself if ever in the area. We had a fantastic time and felt as though we were staying in a home from home. Thank you Emma and Owen.
