We first chose this place to stay purely by chance many years ago and now make it a regular pilgrimage at least once a year. What can we add to the many favourable comments except to say that if your looking for the perfect relaxing break in tranquil surroundings this is the place. Chris and Margaret are great hosts and clearly enjoy sharing the delights of this special place with their guests. The breakfast is a sumptous affair and we always leave feeling replete and set up for the day!
Although the farmhouse is tucked away, you don't have to go far to find plenty to keep you occupied. The Duncombe Arms just down the road is highly recommended for good gastropub fare. Be sure to check out the spectacular views from Weaver Hill accessed from nearby Wooton village. Another find is the Rocester Tandoori a few miles away - cheap and cheerful.
The bustling town of Ashbourne is just a short drive away and worth a visit.
All in all a great place to stay in a brilliant setting!
