'Boutique Barn' barn accommodation / wedding venue

 Boutique Barn is the perfect getaway. Peaceful and secluded, it's a wonderful place to recoup after a busy holiday or just a weekend away. The barn is charming and cosy with views to die for. I wish we had more time there. We'll definitely aim at making it back for a longer stay.
