This charming old farmhouse must be in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. A drive away there is a National Trust property and a zoo; plus beautiful beaches and coastal walks. A short, but steep, walk down the hill from the farmhouse takes you to "The Dell" where you can cross the stream via many little wooden bridges, or sit on a bench and listen to the water and read a book or draw. The house is gorgeous - full of charm, but not short on modern comforts either. I visited as part of a group of family and friends, and this is the perfect venue - everyone had their own room (and bathroom), but could get together in the welcoming living room to socialise. The meals were fabulous, too! Highly recommended.
