Mashay Barn is a detached single storey building offering an excellent, comfortable standard of accommodation.
Situated on the outskirts of a village, it is quiet and very peaceful and ideal for 'chilling out'.
For those guests who like to explore there are over 40 attractions in the area..
You’ll love my place because of the ambiance, the location, and the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.

The space

The Barn is very well equipped, it has a fully fitted kitchen with full size cooker, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, pine table and four chairs.
The lounge has a digital tv and Dvd player, two 2 seater sofas.

We had a very comfortable 5 night stay at Mashay Barn, it had everything we needed and was lovely to return to after a day out exploring the nearby villages, towns and countryside. Lesley was very easy to communicate with and on our arrival welcomed us with a table set for afternoon tea and fresh flowers. For a delightful country get-away I would highly recommended Mashay Barn. Many thanks Lesley!

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the Barn and the weather was definately with you this week. I really enjoyed our 'little chats' each afternoon. Thank you both so much for leaving the barn spotlessly clean. I hope you enjoy your time in London and that you have a safe journey back home to Adelaide.

Wow!! I can't express just how peaceful and relaxing it is to stay here. The decking area is great for sitting and enjoying the summer sun or even the evening air. The inside has everything you could ever need too. From the fully equipped kitchen right down to the sewing kit and shoe cleaning kit. Everything has been thought about. It's a truly beautiful place run by truly wonderful people. Once you've been you won't ever want to leave.
