Helpful Holidays lived up to their name throughout the booking process and run up to the holiday and we appreciated the reminder of how to get there just before we left home. The Hayloft was very comfortable and welcoming and was well equipped. It was in a good location as we felt as though we were in the middle of nowhere (lovely!), but found that the local shops for food, etc we needed were only five minutes away. We loved the gardens all around us which supplied the edible flowers in the salad and on the beautiful cake left to welcome us on our arrival. Lots of places to visit nearby. The Wyndham Arms in Kentisbeare served good food and also made us very welcome.
