Save to favouritesPrintMailCliff BarnsAll you need to know is this: Cliff Barns is one of the loveliest places you could ever hope to wash up in - and yes, the name is intentionally reminiscent of Dallas. You step inside and it slowly dawns that all those plans you made for the weekend will come to nothing. Why? Because now youíve found your slice of heaven, nothing will part you from it. Three playfully renovated barns encircle a central courtyard. In keeping with the Western theme - which the owners describe as 'Rancho Deluxe' - you get soaring wooden ceilings, slate floors covered with Aztec rugs, cowhide chairs, the odd straw Stetson and moose heads hanging from exposed stone walls. Turn left and you find a fleet of eclectic and fun [r:UK110:rooms], each with their own cowboy character; turn right and you discover an enormous sitting room, with a vast stone fireplace. Best of all is the courtyard. In summer itís the hub of the house - potter out for a game of ping pong, a soak in the hot tub, or to throw some sausages onto the barbecue. Back inside, the sitting room comes with loads to entertain you: piles of books, mountains of games (some in giant versions), a hifi and WiFi. As for the kitchen, itís got everything youíll need, though you may not need it at all as a chef can come in to cook for you. Itís out of this world, so gather a group of friends and come for a big weekend.
