We spent a week at Crofts Barn in May. It was a good place to be during wall-to-wall sunshine! We would echo the virtues extolled by other reviewers. Our reason for not giving five stars is the site's policy on dogs. The owners' dogs are allowed to run around loose on the site field and on three occasions we encountered dog poo on the field or car park. Stephanie cleared it up when it was drawn to her attention, and wanted any instances reported so that she could take swift action. But for us, having to do that made the site feel less peaceful.

We thank you for your review and have addressed your concerns regarding our dogs by installing an electric fence which restricts our dogs from accessing the CL site.
