Stewart Hastings recommends High Ridge Barn
6 Adults, 2 young Granchildren and a huge Dog all over prepared for a winter break, coats galore, scarves, base layers,hats, walking boot etc. What we actually needed was shorts, flip flops, sun cream for what turned out to be the highest February temperatures on record!!
For my sins I run a lovely Guest House near Cambridge which apparently is very good! So whilst I was keen to get away , I have to confess to being a little apprehensive as to what the place was going to be like. Well I needn't have bothered, from what I can see the bar has been raised... considerably!
Suffice to say we were all superbly catered for in every way possible. The location is to die for and the specification, both internal and external, is second to none. The property is perfect for entertaining at home with ample space and comfort should you want to stay in. Having said that The Lazy Trout was extremely good, the fish and chips were superb on the first night, the Wincle Brewery and it's location is just magical, and the beer is not bad either.
We enjoyed several of the recommended walks which were exhilarating and with stunning scenery and sensible because we all survived. I think you get the idea, so well done to Rob and Rosie (who incidentally are on hand should you need them but otherwise very discreet) for creating this masterpiece and will we be returning .... but of course!
