"Just a quick message to say we had a fabulous weekend at the Canterbury Barn, I couldn't believe the view was actually better than on your website. It helped that we had lovely weather. Everything in the barn was super quality with plenty of mugs, plates, glasses, cutlery etc to cope with our number and two dishwashers - great. Karl Lewis-Laws was an excellent chef and family and friends are now asking when we could book the Barn for Christmas. Final quote from my grandson Thank you Granny for booking this lovely place."
