Weekend stay
Great host who was very helpful and good humoured. Perfect kitchen diner has ample size for large groups. Hot tub a wonderful addition though it can be tricky to get the temperature right! Would love to return in summer when it would come into its own. Highly recommended.

Hi. Thank you for your kind review, you are all very welcome to return. The hot tub is very popular especially as it can be adjusted for both adults and children. The zip wire is also incredibly popular, especially with children. But, the garden is definitely better in summer. Kind regards, David.

Family Fun at Squirrel Barn!
We absolutely loved our stay at Squirrel Barn, it was the perfect place for our family gathering. We had a complete mixture of ages and there really was something for everyone to do. So much to do out in the garden especially, the kids and adults loved the rope swing! The barn has everything you would need for a family stay which means you don’t need to pack quite so much which is always good! The host David really could not have been anymore helpful, always very quick with responding and would do anything to make our stay comfortable. We will absolutely be returning but this time for a bit longer! Thank you Squirrel Barn, we loved it :-)

Lovely host and welcoming. So thoughtful to have a welcome food pack of eggs, milk, bread, tea bags etc. Plenty to entertain the children and adults a like. It was never too much for the host to help with getting the wood burning hot tub working.

Thank you for your review. You are of course all very welcome to return when it is not raining:) But at least you all got to use everything in the gardens, as well as the hot tub. Kind regards, David.
