Dolly's barn was just the perfect place to spend a family holiday together, there was room for us all to chill and the grandchildren to play. The outside play area was fantastic for us all to spend a few hours enjoying a glass of wine and watching the kids play together. The owners were lovely and friendly to us all, We all had the best holiday ever, and would highly recommend Dolly's Barn. Thank you so much. Mr & Mrs D, August 2019
