Beautiful, away from it all quiet location! We needed a late check-in on the Friday night and this was easily arranged by a quick call to the owner (the website we looked at is too vague on this point!) plus we saved a small amount of money by booking direct. Although credit card details were taken, the transaction wasn't done until we checked out on the Sunday. We opted for the Continental breakfast for the Saturday due to our late arrival and the fridge was stocked with choices of juice in jugs, eggs, yoghurt, bread, butter, jams. Tea and coffee plentiful, although I rarely travel without my Earl Grey tea! Sunday, we trotted up to the house for a cooked breakfast, although they would have brought it to us if we wanted but I was curious to see the house. Lovely dining room, very friendly with lots of choice of cereals etc in addition to the cooked breakfast. The Chicken Barn was very clean and tastefully decorated and accessorized. Good size towels with shower gel etc provided. It is incredibly quiet, no farm noise and somewhat disappointingly, no clucking or cock-a-doodling!
Tip - If you do arrive in the dark, when you drive onto the farm, you will need to descend straight ahead of you where you will see the open side of a big barn that has corrugated iron roof and sides. To the immediate left, is an open gate which you drive through with this big barn immediately on your right. At the end of this long barn, you will find the chicken barn (see photo).
My only regret, is that I didn't attempt to find out where an early morning group of deer went when they disappeared in to the woods by the barley field!
