Just some of the comments made:

* Awesome facility: If I could give this more than 5 I would. The cottage lived up to the description and more. Everything was clean and of the highest quality. Lots of little touches like the welcome note and homes made cakes, coffee tea and milk on arrival.

* We've just returned from a relaxing week at the lovely conversion and would highly recommend it. The barn is a home from home with comfy sofas and decorated to a high standard. The baths are huge and made for some lovely relaxing bubble baths after a walk in the beautiful surroundings. The place is well equipped and lovely and warm. we travelled with family and small children and the stair gate was a welcome addition. The Abbey grounds are stunning with a great play park for the little ones - not to mention......

Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights, a party of 4 adults and 2 young children. The granary is located in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The owners are next door which is helpful if needed, but completely unobtrusive. Homemade cream cakes on arrival were gratefully received thank you! Bedrooms and bathrooms were a great size and layout. House was spotless on arrival. We will definitely look to visit and stay again soon when we next visit family in the area.

Amazing property and very relaxed atmosphere - couldn't have been better.

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious and very homely. As it is in the Newstead Abbey estate it is in a truly stunning setting and you feel nicely away from the hussle and bustle of life - fantastic for a holiday.

Stephen and Carole are very relaxed but are on hand if you need anything - couldn't have been more helpful. I fully intend to come back next year. Many thanks.

Top quality property

  • 5 of 5

The property is in beautifully converted and fitted farm buildings. There are 3 double/twin bedrooms, each with spacious and well fitted en suite facilities. Downstairs there is a spacious lounge/dining room with a small but well equipped kitchen. The property is at a working farm (mainly horses) within the lovely grounds of Newstead Abbey. Wonderfully peaceful. A great place to stay. Thanks Steve.
