It is hard to find words to describe the experience of staying here. It is incredible. The rooms are big, warm, and comfy beds . The owners, Amanda and John, are great hosts, food is hot and lots of it. and very tasty. Horsesand ponies are everywhere, and to see the incredible work they all do here for the disabled just has to be seen to be believed. It is an amazing place with ducks, geese, pigs, sheep (which get driven in harness like the ponies) . The walks and views are beautiful. If horses are not your thing, there are some great car rides out, with John and Amanda giving you lots of places to visit. You will def want to come back again and again. We have already booked our next trip and will be bringing our own pony with us. If you get a chance, book a pony drive experience with one of the incredble staff, you will be well and truly hooked and, like us, clammering for more more more.
