Beautiful conversion, well equipped although some appliances are a little tired now and the chopping boards were unusable. Stunning views and a great location. Provision of a dishwasher where the old fridge is located would have been welcomed.

We loved our time at the old Masson barn. For us as hikers we loved the location as so many walks are available from the doorstep. The views from the property are stunning and it was so peaceful and relaxing as no cars pass the property. Amenities are close by with a large Sainsburys within walking distance and as a added bonus a genuinely good iceRead more cream parlour is at the bottom of the track. The property is warm, comfortable and well equipped. We loved the views from the dining table. Hide
