  • "Hillside farm was a massive accommodation Everything you would need to cook your meals Chilling out is so easy because there was so much space and it was so peaceful."

    We will definitely be going back the garden area was immense. It’s just a pity they don’t allow dogs as both our daughters & family have a dog each and it would have been fabulous to share this place with them. I fully understand why no dogs are allowed but all that was missing from my holiday was the rest of the family. It would have been fantastic to all stay there. But it won’t put me off booking again

  • "The farmhouse far exceeded our expectations."

    It is a beautiful large comfortable well equipped property. I could not pick a single fault with our 7 night stay. We will definately be returning during the warmer months when we can benifit from the huge garden and surrounding countryside walks. We had a couple of issues but I would like to thank Niki the housekeeper for dealing with our calls and text so efficiently. She could not do enough for us and this was duly noted and much appreciated.

  • "The images on the website didn't do this house justice."

    It was absolutely huge!! A great sized family home for a large party of people. The only thing that I would change is the lighting. Some of the rooms had warm lighting and lamps and other rooms had the harsh, bright lighting, which was not great.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed at this property and absolutely love it."

    Beautiful views, off the beaten track, but close to a major road. Pure luxury and plenty of room to be together or off on your own. We will no doubt be back for a third time soon. :D
