Reviews

Great property if you really want to be away from it all. Beautiful, peaceful and great service

Mrs Kay P,

Dod Barn was a special place to stay, it was warm, clean and cosy with everything we needed for a holiday exploring the National Park. The host was easily contactable for advice on the area and amenities. We were made to feel extremely welcome and look forward to returning in the future.

Past Customer,

All worked perfectly with the handover. The instructions are very good for finding the house as GPS can be unreliable up there. It is way off the beaten track and very isolated. The road is bumpy but you do not need an SUV. The accommodation is very nice and we wanted for nothing as we brought up everything. The owner left some treats for us. The neighbour was very helpful as well. The outside was well used with 4 children playing rounders ( a set left for us). We din't take advantage of the walks but did do a family jaunt up the hill. We would love to go again.

Past Customer,

We loved our stay at The Dod Barn, it was perfect for what we wanted- a relaxing place to catch up with school friends after finishing university. The rural location was great for us, and it's close enough to drive to shops and cafes etc. We will definitely be back!
