We stayed at Little Bay Barn for a week as a surprise for my husband's 50th Birthday. The location is quiet with fantastic views; the owner of the property is very welcoming with a wealth of knowledge of the area & gave advice on walks & places to eat & was very hospitable. The property was very homely & comfortable & seeing wildlife we don't normally see added to it. We would visited this property & area again.

Cottage was well appointed and pretty comfie.the bed was high but very
Comfortable with plenty of pristine bedding.we were disappointed that the lovely wood stove was decorative rather than functional.it was one of the
Criteria for the booking that we specially asked for .the heating was good but
the stove would have made it more cosy.we have a stove at home so are
spoilt.we also didn't find the seating in the sitting room was very comfy.I think
The cottage was more suited to hikers or riders.we did enjoy our break and our hostess was very kind and helpful.the nature on the doorstep was lovely
we especially loved the red squirrels and nuthatch
