Brilliant stay in Lapwing thank you, everyone was super impressed by everything about the place - rooms, space, décor, stunning views. Perfect.

We had a joint 30th birthday at Lapwing and all agreed that the house and grounds were lovely and beyond our expectations. Great views and very peaceful. Well, the cows were noisy but we quite liked them. Myself and my now fiancee Jenny got engaged during our stay and the whole weekend couldn't have been more perfect. Luxury for the older ones, farm animals and trampolines for the younger. Absolutely great!

We arrived back from our lovely weekend in Lapwing house today. Thank you so much for your great service, the house was fab, large, clean, well placed, great outdoor space and really well equipped for a big group and the kids. All the toys were fab though, the kids loved the noisy stuff! Thank you so much for your flexibility in letting us leave the keys at the property, 30 mins to the pub there and back would’ve made our journey home a bit long! All in all a great weekend and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.

Many thanks for your email. We all had a fantastic time at Lapwing Barns. A stunning house in a stunningly beautiful location. Everything we needed was there. Thanks again for advising us on things to do. We went to Wincle (fishing, brewery, pub lunch and ice cream!) and also the Poole Caves which were all excellent trips enjoyed by all. It exceeded our expectations. So much so it would be nice to book and come back next year.

We all throroughly enjoyed the stay - a 40th to remember for me! The accomodation is absolutely fantastic, and the views are beautiful. Appreciate you organising the weather in the way you did too......I'm sure we'll use one of your properties again in the future. Lunch at the pub was also good news on Sunday.

We had a great time and honestly the house could not have been better for what we needed. Very difficult to find a place where everyone can sit down together
Latham stayed in May '16
We had a wonderful time during our stay at Lapwing Barns. The specification and décor inside the house is fantastic. The house itself is very spacious and in particular; the open plan kitchen, and lounge/diner were brilliant enabling us to enjoy dinners and breakfasts! The views out over the open countryside are gorgeous.
