This was our second visit to The Great Higham Barn Complex. The first time we just booked the Barn, but after hearing tales of our first holiday we had more friends request to join us when we went again so it was great to be able to book the whole complex. It's a really good venue for a large gathering, the huge dining table in the Bran is big enough to fit everyone round at meal times. Its set in beautiful surroundings, great for dog walks. The log fired hot tub and tennis court were used a lot. We have some great memories of our stay.
