“A lovely peaceful haven”
Reviewed 29 November 2010

My wife and I stayed here in the summer and had a terrific time. We looked for a peaceful place to switch off for a few days and we certainly found it here. Our warm welcome (with gorgeous home-made oat cookies!) was something we haven’t experienced before. We instantly felt at home and just lazed around in the lounge for a few hours before heading out for the day.

The breakfasts were fantastic and there was nothing we wanted for. We even had fresh eggs from the chickens outside. The service was friendly and relaxed and nothing was too much trouble. We ended up eating all of our evening meals here as well, which was unusual for us as we normally like to try different places to eat. But when the food is this good we thought ‘Why bother going elsewhere?’.

Our room (The Hayloft) was lovely and we slept very well indeed. Mobile phone coverage is patchy, but to me that was a good thing, as we just wanted to get away from it all. Having a pool was a nice option, even though we didn’t use it ourselves.

The local village of Sheepwash is lovely and the pub is very welcoming.

Highly recommended for a quiet getaway.

I stayed at Lake Farm with my friends in November 2010. We had a lovely stay. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless, really well decorated and comfy. The breakfast and cookies and cakes made by Erica are delicious. Most of all, Erica and Gary are incredibly welcoming and hepful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.
