  • “Spent Xmas at Robins Nest and it ...”
    Spent Xmas at Robins Nest and it was wonderful. ...
    Spent Xmas at Robins Nest and it was wonderful. A lovely Xmas tree was in the lounge and a festive wreath on the door and fresh flowers to welcome us. If you want to get away from the madding crowd this is the ideal place to go. We found some fabulous places to visit and a couple of really old pubs in the area serving great food but we also cooked in our accommodation as it has all the facilities there. There’s a separate laundry room alongside the main house and we were invited to have a look at all the animals on the farm. It is a proper working farm and we took our dog and had some wonderful walks in the countryside. It’s a very picturesque setting and so pleased we found it; it’s a little gem. And the beds are so comfortable too. We had them made up as twins but you can have it as a double if needed. It was very clean and tidy and lovely and warm. Overall this gave us the perfect Xmas break and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it.
