Great holiday for 4 adults and 4 children. Lots of room to be together, and to find your own space when required. Lovely pack of goodies there when we arrived. Everything you need there for a great break away.

A spacious, rustic old farm house with plenty of character. Lots of rooms and space. Very nicely decorated and plenty of room for 10 to be together or hang out in separate living areas. All slate floors throughout downstairs so no need to worry about spillages - lovely new carpet throughout upstairs giving a cosy feel. The bathroom set up is slightRead morely weird but easily accommodated. We LOVED it and would definitely return. Hide

Fab house - really interesting & old - children loved exploring. The games rooms were great - so much to do especially when the weather was poor. Welcome pack of cream tea & plenty of milk was much appreciated. We all loved watching the cows being milked & seeing all the calves - many thanks to Olly & his dad for being so generous with their time. Read morePerfect location. Hide
