Spent the weekend here with a large group of friends and had the most relaxed and enjoyable visit. The houses have everything you need and the whole visit was peaceful in the farm surroundings. Would highly recommend hiring for a large group get together of just food drink and catching up!

Spent 2 nights in the barn had a lovely comfortable stay - everything provided that you could need and more. Comfy beds, we only didn't get to use hot tub as we were visiting friends and ran out of time. Brilliant location too. Liz is very friendly and made us very welcome.
