Cottage Review:  

Black Barn is beautifully renovated. It is warm and clean and the kitchen is well equipped. It is wonderful for viewing farm animals up close. The downstairs furnishings are adequate. The worst aspect of this cottage is the beds. We went well prepared with an additional foam topper for the double bed mattress. Despite this the beds were not comfortable The double bed was rickety and the mattress hard and lumpy. The mattresses on the single beds were totally inadequate. No springs and even a child would find them uncomfortable. We put both single mat

We have 2 children 2, & 8 they loved seeing the sheep and the cows.

My only criticism is The Beds! They are terrible, it felt like the master bed was going to collapse when we turned over, and our 8 year old complained about his too. It's the only thing that would stop us going

Beds uncomfortable but rest of furniture comfy. There was very little information on display as to how things work etc...outside lights wouldn't work so we contacted owner who told us to go outside and empty any water out of light fittings (very disappointed in this) lights still didn't work and trip switch constantly flicked off throughout our stay. Extremely dark outside so lighting w
