“A Little Piece of Paradise on Earth”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed at Midsummer Barn for 4 nights It was lovely or should I say beautiful in every way. Mixture of the Old and new blended so well. The inside doors are a joy to see and open. Very roomy accommodation that is spotless lots of products to keep it clean too. Pet friendly and Snoopy our Springer Spaniel did make to most of the Lovely Garden. It would be nice if guests brought a cover for the lovely leather settees and wash them on leaving as dogs can leave an odor. Views of the Hills and Dales were Panoramic and the only sounds in the distance was the motorway. Its a Heaven on Earth clean ,warm ,central heating ,lots of hot water and not a fly in sight. At the bottom of the Garden was a lovely Robin. There is a lovely lady called Wissels and this greyhound is a joy to watch and will not refuse any dog biscuits or chicken you may have and believe me she has such a beautiful nature. Perfect helpful Host and lovely decor. Great Neighbors too . It is wonderful value for money and no niggling extras or pound meters. Even the little starters were there i.e. little bar of soap and a lovely bottle of wine home made but do remember to leave the empty bottle for re-cycling/reuse. Thank you for a wonderful break Fr Anthony and Sister Helen Senior Carer

A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Ideal for families, spacious rooms and a kitchen with everything you need in the way of crockery and cookware. Close to motorway and supermarket. A great place to stay with family and friends.

“Well equipped and comfortable accomodation”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Midsummer Barn must be the best equipped holiday rental I have ever stayed in with everything you could think of and more besides, we stayed for 2 weeks in May 2015 and was comfortable with 5 adults and 3 children under 5 was ideal for what we wanted, position close to motorway, views to die for and clean. There were 2 safety gates provided one for the top of the stairs and one for the bottom making it very safe, videos for children & movies for adults and free WiFi, I would recommend Midsummer Barn for couples and families and was good value for money

“Outstanding value with great access to Greater Manchester”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A hidden gem in the Lancashire countryside, that catered perfectly for our needs. The owners were quick and flexible to respond to our needs. My only struggle was my car (used to driving around Cambridgeshire) suddenly having to contend with proper Northern hills.
