  • "Fantastic weekend getaway for us, rustic, the most amazing views, peaceful and a stream right at the bottom of the garden."

    The best thing would have to be our host Derrick where nothing was too much trouble, always on hand if we needed ANYTHING but left us to our own privacy, if only we could have bottled him up and taken him home. Full recommendations from us, try it I promise you will fall in love with it. Thank you for having us x

  • "What a fantastic setting, so beautiful and peaceful."

    Had the full benefit of having a wood burning hot tub, wow it was amazing. Host was brilliant and really friendly as well as welcoming. If you want to get away from it all then book this place, stunning countryside and a 5 minute drive to shops. The facilities enable you to cook food whilst on site. Also dogs are welcome and ours loved the space

    Thank you Sam, that’s super kind. It was a pleasure to meet you all . How cool is that Hot Tub …..hopefully we’ll see you again one day ? All the best Property Owner
