My husband and I booked cottage 10 and the Roundhouse in Sept 16 for one week. We were having a special celebration for family and friends so being able to book two cottages gave us plenty of space and flexibility . Court Barton is a hidden gem - beautiful grounds and facilities and a fantastic area to explore . Both cottages were stylish, comfortable and well equipped. We had a glorious week and would recommend these properties. We have planned to return in Sept 17, booking cottage 10 again as a break for me and my husband.
We have been to the round house 3 times and it has to be the best holiday we have ever been on. It is very clean and tidy. We can't wait to book to go again.
