My boy friend and I booked to stay here over the weekend for a relaxing break and it was lovely. With regards to the 1 star comment I must say I was shocked at this review because the women was lovely and wasn't 6ft 2 as described. From what I can gather they must have got confused with another B'n'B as the cottages aren't at that price either because we did consider going for a cottage rather than a B'n'B stay intially.
In the end we opted for stay in the double room. Everything was great, no complaints at all to make! The views were amazing and there was attention to detail. On arrival we were served tea and cakes (which we weren't expecting) and the place was very welcoming. The breakfast was great too and it included some of their own produce. You do have to drive down country lanes to get to the farm but it meant we had fantastic views and lots of peace and quiet. We also saw deer in the forest.
One of the highlights for me was because it was a working farm we actually got to see some of the lambs which were only one day old! We were actually suprised at the amount to do in the area, we went clay pigeon shooting and horse riding. The B'n'B also had Wifi so we could watch films on netflix (our own netflix account).
If you are after a warm welcoming break away this is a perfect place to go.
