    “Overall we enjoyed our stay: the cottage was as described, at a price we found reasonable.”

    The information given about the items in the cottage, the bins and the village and its surrounds was excellent. When the weather was fine and sunny we could leave the cottage door open and sit in the delightful garden. However when chilly and/or raining this was not possible and we could smell damp and felt rather hemmed in due to the outlook being below the garden ground level. We could smell damp when lying in bed. I would say that its up to the owner if she would like this published.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have passed your comments onto the owner, who confirms that the property has been professionally damp proofed. Now we are getting into the winter season the heating will be on more so that should help. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were able to make good use of the garden. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

The property

Pop's Barn (named after the owner's grandfather) is a secret little hideaway behind the High Street in the bustling village of Downton.

Walking down a narrow path leading off a side lane, you stumble upon this pretty brick building set in its own private walled garden.

Despite its seclusion, the cottage is perfectly located for the numerous attractions this popular area has to offer.

Pop's Barn has been well designed to maximise its small interior spaces making a cosy retreat for two people.

Guests can enjoy a peaceful evening drink or al fresco meal in its pretty and sunny garden.
