Don't be put off by the drive up to the farm - it is well worth it!! This is the most beautiful spot with breath-taking views. We stayed in the main house in a lovely room with a very comfortable bed and excellent bathroom facilities and products. The home-cooked and home-grown breakfast was superb - and to wake with the smell of fresh bread cooking absolutely sets you up for the day. Trish and Andrew and their daughters were absolutely delightful and interested and keen to hear about our experiences whilst there (we were down for a family wedding). The badger watching was an absolute treat - one of us had never seen these creatures before and the set-up in the specially built hut comfortable and well worth doing. Thank you Trish and Andrew for a terrific weekend.
