  • "The Calf Pen is a wonderful little home from home."

    I arrived fully equipped, but didn't need to use the things I brought because so much was provided. Clean and tidy. Very comfortable. Laid out very well. The surrounding environment with the small garden and use of the field was great for my little dogs. Lots to do in the area. Peaceful and quiet.
