"Orchid Barn definitely exceeded all our expectations! 
The cottage is one of the best we have stayed in from the beautifully furnished rooms to the comfortable bed to the powerful shower - and the extras that you do not usually find with cottage bookings that set it apart, namely the towels and toiletries, a fantastic welcome food pack and the hot tub.......
We loved the cottage so much that we intend to book this as our base for our property search weekends and holidays in the coming months."
"Complete comfort and relaxation"
"We wanted a holiday where we could completely relax and unwind... Boy did we get it."

"The private garden is fantastic, drenched in sun with our own bbq which we made use of. 
We used the hot tub during the holiday and were even given towels to use with it. 
The location was good with smooth French roads which made driving anywhere a pleasure! We explored all the local towns and the beach.
