Just returned from a fantastic stay at Dee and Charles' Southlands Farm Cottages. We stayed in Middle cottage which was perfect for us as there were just two of us. Middle cottage has a great feel to it, very nicely decorated with luxurious touches. We were lucky to have great weather and there's lots of nice routes to go for a walk, a jog or a drive. If you're lucky some of the family dogs might pay you a visit and you'll get to meet ratchet (pictured) and widget and the rest of their gang, which is a treat as there very friendly and energetic.
We were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay and we enjoyed being able to wander around the farm and meet the ponies, chickens and goats. The farm also has cows and on the way home we bought some of the farms own beef sausages and steaks which we later had on a bbq and were delicious. Dee was even kind enough to pack them for us so that they wouldn't defrost on the journey home. We were also fortunate to be welcomed with a very nice basket of items including eggs, chutney, soap and tea, which is a very nice touch indeed.
The cottage has absolutely everything you need and if what you would like is to relax in comfort, read a book, watch TV, go for a walk, a cycle, a drive, get some rest, enjoy the countryside, sit by a wood burner, enjoy a glass of wine and eat great food, you can do it all at Southlands Farm Cottages. We would love to come back and rent the whole place with friends and family, I imagine its spectacular in the winter as well as the summer!
Thank you for a great stay- John and Liz, May 2014
