A big thank you to Joan and Chris for such a warm welcome and home comforts. Beautiful breakfasts which our older sons enjoyed and we all loved our frequent visits from Tom (the dog)! Husband fed so well too (coeliac). Would not hesitate to recommend.

Dear Joan, Chris and Staff, so pleased we decided to brave the COVID-19 restrictions and booked a short break at Hayes Barton. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The evening meals and breakfasts were excellent and Nick was very well catered for as a Coeliac require Gluten Free meals. Enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks hearing Chris’s stories and, of course, Tom was also on bar duties. Exceptional health and safety standards. Look forward to coming back again, Many thanks, Anne & Nick
