My daughter (age 5) and I stayed in The Cote, one of the self-catering converted barns on the farm and it was absolutely delightful. It was a fantastic escape from my commute to work in London every day and just spend some quality time with my daughter in wonderful surroundings.
As two girls alone, we felt very safe and secure in the cottage and around the farm itself. The Cote was immaculate, cosy, peaceful and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay and the private walled courtyard garden was lovely.
Alison and Howard made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed the yummy homemade cake that was in our cottage on arrival. My daughter loved the trampoline and looking at the sheep, cows and horses on the farm and even got a tractor ride. The farm is in a great location for touring the island.
We had a fab time and would definitely recommend to friends and family and hope to visit again ourselves very soon.
