“Away From It All”
Reviewed 16 January 2013 for a stay in July 2012

The cottage is clean, well-equipped and tidy rather than luxurious. The living area is upstairs and makes the best of the lovely views. My children were 11 and 13 at the time of travel and enjoyed feeding the charming ducks. They also loved roaming over the estate and visiting the tyre swing. Farm holidays do seem to entertain younger children especially well.
You really do feel away from the city life and there's lots of wildlife around if that interests you.

Thank you for your review it is greatly appreciated :-).
I just wanted to let you know that since your stay all the mattresses have been replaced with top quality pocket sprung models. In addition the master bedroom now has a king size double rather than a standard.

“Excellent super place”
Reviewed 16 January 2013 for a stay in October 2012

Thank you Paul, Eileen and Jim.
We've had a wonderful half term holiday despite the bad weather. The barn is beautiful and you have all made us feel very welcome. The kids loved helping out on the farm and building dams in the stream. Thanks Eileen for showing us the best spot for dam building and the reed boat master class.
The fruit cake was yummy, just what was needed after a long drive
