  • "Excellent accommodation, it would be impossible to have any negative comments on it."

    Very welcoming gift pack of cream scones ,tea etc. We took the usual household cleaning products but did not need any of them as everything was provided. We cannot recommend this property highly enough. Excellent.

  • "Superb place - the milking parlour is a lovely, modern, and spacious property (we were 6 adults and 1 five year old) in a wonderful rural setting."

    Local walks were great as was the garden, hot tub and view. The owners / hosts were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We had a great Easter weekend break.

    Thank you so much for this lovely feedback Lynsey, we really appreciate it! We're so glad you enjoyed your Easter break with us and it was lovely to meet you and your family. We hope to see you again in the future for another stay with us. Property Owner
