The Granary is a really good space for entertaining a large number with enough plates/cutlery/glasses if the other barns are raided for supplies. WiFi was good from some barns and ok from others, but freely available. We used all the barns for our group: the beds/pillows were comfortable, heating was good. However, the walls are very thin so all sounds carry - be warned. The bathrooms were well stocked, but the towels were small.
The kitchens are not well set up for cooking other than simple things, and certainly not for large numbers. Bring your own mixing bowls, wooden spoons, large pots, weighing machines (there is one in each barn but it is so small as to be unusable, sharp large kitchen knives, electric mixer -- I accept that an electric mixer is not a normal appliance to find in a holiday rental.
Our biggest gripe was that the washing machine and tumble dryer are an extra charge @ £3 per time. The machines are old and small. The tumble dryer did not manage one load completely dried. There is no drying space provided. Also we had to fight for time to use it with the cafe which uses it as well for commercial use. The barns are expensive and this should be included.

My friends and I (23 in total) went to creeksea to stay for a hen weekend. When we arrived the barns exceeded our expectations and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The barns were clean and tidy and beautifully decorated. Everything we could need was available and the cafe on site was a god send after a night out! I am already planning another visit to the barns with my family and will be recommending creeksea to all my friends.
It's self catering which I regularly do so I took my usual tea coffee sugar milk washing up liquid cloths etc I even took a travel iron...on arrival I noticed there was already tea and stuff there even an iron etc.the beds ,pillows and quilts were amazingly comfortable and the bathroom omg I didn't want to get out the bath...I was away on a friend's hen weekend and I even phoned my husband to say I wasn't coming home lol the parlour cafe we visited every morning for breakfast....excellent service . Overall we all had an amazing time and would definitely recommend this for any occasion .Well done ,I was sad to leave

Hired the whole barn complex for over 25 people. Worked brilliantly with a communal area large enough to host everyone to eat at the same time. The area is lovely - great for walking with lovely coffee shops. The barns are beautiful and clean. Highly recommend booking for large gatherings.
Booked to celebrate husbands 50th birthday and chance to have a family get together. Venue was perfect - everyone had their own space but plenty of room to seat 28 of us for a meal in the Granary and a BBQ outside too. Emily was the perfect hostess and could not be more helpful or considerate.
We would definitely recommend and there is every chance we shall do it again in the near future. Home made Indian food made by Aitka from Khush was fantastic too!
