  • “A nice quiet spot, away from roaring traffic, but the path to the Pop's Barn is long, with steps and a rough, difficult surface to haul baggage over.”

    Parking is difficult and there is no WIFI - unusual for Sykes Cottages - and a real necessity when on holiday.

The property

Pop's Barn (named after the owner's grandfather) is a secret little hideaway behind the High Street in the bustling village of Downton.

Walking down a narrow path leading off a side lane, you stumble upon this pretty brick building set in its own private walled garden.

Despite its seclusion, the cottage is perfectly located for the numerous attractions this popular area has to offer.

Pop's Barn has been well designed to maximise its small interior spaces making a cosy retreat for two people.

Guests can enjoy a peaceful evening drink or al fresco meal in its pretty and sunny garden.
