    “Sykes did a great job of answering ...”

    Sykes did a great job of answering every question that we had. The website was easy to use and everyone that assisted us was kind and quick to respond. The Humble Daisy was one of the best rentals that we've ever stayed in and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Walk out of the kitchen through the original hall, into the original parlour with its exposed walls and warm cosy open fire; perfect to relax in front of, watching the TV or curled up with a good book.

There are two double en-suite bedrooms downstairs, and one even features the owner’s grandmother’s piano.

Upstairs from the parlour is a spacious mezzanine level with a table and chairs to relax by the window and enjoy the views, a bathroom and a twin bedroom.
