A Really Lovely Stay at Barn End

By Hannah, Derrick and Elysia on 08-Apr-2023

A really lovely stay in Barn End. Lots to do and explore in Wiltshire at Easter. Spending a lazy day in the cottage is a must, Bath on a wet day, National Trust properties on sunny days and English Heritage on dry days. We will return in the future!

We will definitely return
