    Selected Customer Comments about Thornden Farm - The Byre at Ashburnham

    "Excellent place for a get away from it all holiday. Would say though that The Swan Inn is 2 miles away not 1.5 as stated, also its not really wise to walk, as roads are quite narrow and cars do seem to speed along them. July 2011."

    "Very cosy, romantic, clean and tidy. The owners didn’t bother us at all - they just left us to it so we felt at peace with privacy. Beautiful area for walks etc Would definitely return. Oct 2010."

    "Small, cosy cottage but perfectly adequate for 2 people. A couple of low beams which took time to get used to! Excellent location for exploring the surrounding area. July 2010."

    "Warm and comfortable. Jan 2010."

    "An excellent place to visit many attractions, and not far from the coast. Very quiet and in the middle of nowhere, if you like peace and quiet you will love this place. A few nice eating places around not too far to drive to. July 2011."
