Really spacious and clean. It was a perfect holiday cottage for the family. My toddler loved watching the horses and tractors outside the house. There were ducks and other farm animals which were really entertaining.

A fantastic location with plenty of beautiful scenery. Kites, hares and deer a regular feature as well as the gorgeous horses ( and new foal). Lots of room to relax and warm and cosy downstairs. Plenty of room for the seven adults who were there. A couple of the bedrooms need a little update but the downstairs bedroom and en-suite was very comfortaRead moreble as was the twin room. Underfloor heating was great! Lots of things to see and do, so a great base. Had a lovely week. Hide
