WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Theresa, 15th February 2019

Wonderful weekend stay in a quirky old house oozing with character and history. The location and views were spectacular and felt very very at home extremely quickly. The dogs loved running around the fully enclosed, large garden and the games facilities were great for children and adults of all ages. Cooking on the aga was an experience, but like oRead morethers we soon got used to it. My only advice would be to plan menus that dont require a lot of oven work as space is limited. Hide

Tomme, 21st December 2018

Our family (7 adults, 2 young children and 3 dogs) had a wonderful stay over Christmas. We found Isabella to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our little boy absolutely loved exploring the house and spent most of his time in the games room, the garden was fully enclosed and secure, the lounge had plRead moreenty of space for the family and felt incredibly cosey. An impressive property in which we feel very lucky to have been able to spend our Christmas. Hide

Sarah, 24th August 2018

We had a lovely holiday in the farmhouse. The playroom, tennis court and garden are fantastic for teenagers. The bridge inn was close enough to walk to and was dog friendly. The aga took a bit of getting used to but we cooked lots of lovely meals for a large family.

James, 25th May 2018

Beautiful old farmhouse, well equipped for a large group, and with incredible views over the valley. The aga took a bit of getting used to but we got there in the end. The tennis courts and games room kept us entertained whilst the Bridge Inn pub was a brisk 20min walk away over the fields with only minor interactions with cattle required! Our onlyRead more issue was the sole shower in the house leading to a queue every morning. The WiFi mostly worked, albeit at a gentle pace. Hide

Ann, 6th April 2018

Very characterful property great for family get together. Plenty of off road parking and our 3 dogs loved the fully enclosed garden. Good tennis court. Inside has plenty of character. We cooked a roast dinner for 11 in the Aga on our first day and there was plenty of equipment and crockery etc. for all. Games room well equipped, plenty of board gamRead morees and books. Unfortunately the weather was poor when we were there but the stone floors coped well with wet paw prints. Hide

Catherine, 30th March 2018

Large house with ample outdoor space for children and animals but needs a higher fence at the back of the tennis court as our dog easily jumped into the field behind. Kitchen is excellently equipped. Comfortable lounge, excellent games room. Only fit people on the top floor, not suitable for small children or anyone with an infirmity as no bathroomRead more facilities up there. Hide

Marie , 23rd March 2018

Very peaceful spot in a beautiful setting. The house is well equipped and comfy. Stacks of books and some great DVDs and CDs. The games room is fun and the tennis court a treat. My husband left a book and they kindly sent it to us with no charge.
