  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Redbarn

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Redbarn. It is a lovely secluded spot and the house decor is quirky and fun. The relaxing outdoor bath is a big positive.We appreciated the fact that there no extra costs for linen or cleaning. The price you see up front is what you pay. Paul and Di are very generous hosts and we would love to go back some time.
