Cosy comfortable cottage. Very noisy early morning because of farm machinery. It didn't bother us but I think it could cause problems with others who are not used to farm life! Our Westie was attacked by two dogs from the farm opposite which was a bit upsetting. But on the whole a very good experience.
It had everything a couple with a 2yr and 1yr old could want.

Fantastic property at a very reasonable price. Kitchen was very well equipped not many places I looked at had a tumble dryer which was a necessity for us with 2 small kids. Really spacious with comfortable seating which I have found is unusual in holiday homes. The play area outside was great. My husband who is a farmer was as happy as a pig in muck to be on a farm and had a few chats with the owner who was really friendly and showed him around his farm and suggested he visited their local contractor, which he did!! Would recommend this property to anyone even without kids or from a faming background it was a real home from home.
