We had a fabulous family week at rock barn. The property is as stunning in reality as it is in the photos. It is remote so cars are essential, there's no pub in safe walking distance but didn't hamper our enjoyment one bit. The pool table and ping pong were well used, didn't really need any of the three TVs but we did have fabulous weather to get out and explore. Would recommend to anyone looking for a large family get together or holiday.
