“A truly relaxing break in the countryside... with loads to see nearby”

people found this review helpful

We had such a busy week in Buckinghamshire as there are loads of great places to visit within 30 mins drive- Bletchley Park, Waddesdon Manor, Stowe House & gardens, and Gulliver's Land- a theme park for young kids.
The barn was a fabulous place to return to after our days out for some peace and quiet. We mainly ate in as the kitchen is so well appointed and makes it easy to do. We enjoyed comfortable baths in the corner bath, but the power shower is great too. There is a good selection of DVDs and books, as well as games and puzzles, and all the beds were extremely comfy.
The owners were very welcoming and friendly, and the welcome pack with flowers was a lovely touch. The barn is located across 2 fields from the nearest road, which meant we were able to spot wildlife nearby, which delighted the kids.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely place to stay and hope to return in the future.

“beautiful property, but unfortunate problems”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I would love to give this property a higher rating, as a lot of thought and effort has obviously gone into the conversion of this barn to make it a very comfortable holiday let.
But, unfortunately this time, we (I stayed with my daughter for some mother/daughter bonding time) felt sadly let down.
The owner contacted me by text a few days before our arrival to say she was going to be away unexpectedly, and saying to contact her on her mobile if we needed any more information. As I couldn't find any directions to the property (unusual in itself), and knowing it was quite remote, I texted for directions. She passed my request to a neighbour who gave me phone directions on the Friday before our Monday arrival. He also mentioned that the heating wasn't working but hoped to have it fixed before our arrival.
Hearing no more, we assumed the heating was fixed and we arrived, the directions working well. The neighbour greeted us warmly and showed us round the beautiful barn. There was a roaring log fire going, and he then told us that he couldn't get the heating fixed till Friday (our booking was Monday to Thursday).
Luckily both my daughter and I are familiar with wood-burning stoves, and we managed to keep warm. We didn't know how to keep the fire in overnight, however, so the early mornings were chilly. Logs were normally charged at £5 per basket, but this was waived, and we had as many log as we needed.
Other little niggles - the Welcome Basket that other guests raved about in the Comments Book, consisted of very little other than tea bags, coffee, biscuits, and a white sliced supermarket loaf that was passed its sell-by date when we arrived.
In the bathroom. were three hand towels, instead of 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels, and the one bath towel that was there was extremely thin. There were also no toilet rolls so we had to ask for them.
We very much got the feeling that the owner was not around, and that the people she had delegated the responsibility to were very willing but not so able.When the owner did return on our second evening, we invited her in when she called round, but she declined. We would have mentioned these things to her then, but she didn't seem keen to hear them.
Despite this, we enjoyed our stay very much, but we do think a more responsible attitude by the owner towards paying guests could have alleviated most of our problems. A phone call to say the heating could not be fixed and did we still want to come would have been appreciated, too.

I am sorry your stay was not as comfortable as you had hoped. My neighbour made every effort to resolve the heating problem but Air Source Heating Systems require specialist knowledge not usually within the realms of standard plumbers and Friday was the earliest he could get an Engineer to visit. The log burner is from past experience more than capable of heating the barn. I understand that Alastair lit the fire every afternoon before you arrived home and also made sure you had as many logs as you required and he did comment that the barn had regularly been at 24 degrees, and he would have been happy to have helped in the mornings if asked.
With regard to the Welcome Basket this is just a small token and Milk, Butter, Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Biscuits and Bread have always been appreciated in the past.
I always call in to see my guests at the earliest opportunity if I have been unable to greet them and called up to see you on my return, as you gave no indication that you had any complaints and the combination of having spent 14 hours travelling from Eastern Europe and with my disabled husband requiring attention I did not wish to intrude on your evening. I was at home all the next day and also came to see you Wednesday evening to say goodbye and you could have raised any issues then.
i hope your experience has not deterred you from visiting us again.

“A long weekend to remember!”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a wonderful place to spend a long weekend with friends! Lovely accommodation that combines style, comfort and character, set in a location that provides peace and beauty without being isolated. We received a friendly welcome from Christine and were greeted with a lovely basket of goodies and essentials. Bletchley Park, the Hell Fire Caves and the National Trust's Claydon House were within reasonable distance for our weekend's excursions. Would certainly recommend the Harvest Moon Barn to anyone - sitting outside having a glass of wine as the sun goes down over the fields with a red kite soaring overhead is not to be missed!

“A great first family break!”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in the harvest moon cottage for 5 nights with our young family (2 year old boy and 7 weeks little girl).
The cottage itself is very well appointed. Modern amenities but still retains the cottagy feeling. The garden is a good size and ideal for little ones to run around, or for dinner watching the sunset over the fields.
The cottage is very well located: in the middle of nowhere so extremely quiet but at the same time close to so much to do and see.
It's simple... We loved it!
A big thank you to Christine who is a brilliant host. Thank you for the lovely welcome hamper!

PS: following previous reviews, I can confirm the drive has been fixed and is lovely and smooth.

“Would highly recommend.”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

2 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 14 comfortably stayed here for 1 week. Christine gave us a lovely welcome and was always on hand if needed but we also felt our privacy was respected. The barn had a well stocked kitchen. Christine left us a super welcome pack which was so useful for our stay. The location is very good: we visited London, The Cotswolds, Windsor Castle, Woburn Safari Park, Bletchley Park and a few National Trust properties. We would return as there is still so much we would like to do. The barn has a private garden and patio furniture to relax in and the WiFi and phone signal was very good considering the remote location. We saw rabbits in the garden, a fox and red kites. Very good value for money. I would highly recommend this as a holiday home any time of the year.
