A unique family holiday filled with lots of lovely surprises. A child's paradise playground, lots of friendly farm animals and a wonderful dog. Made very welcome and would love to visit again to see what else has been added to this most imaginative and thoughtful place.

It was quirky and a fun place to stay. Very striking and amazing that it was all handmade by the owners. The location was very rural, peaceful and within striking distance of Bath.
