  • Wonderful

    Posted by Lydia on 16/03/2020

    We have been so lucky to spend a weekend in this wonderful house. Nestled away in the middle of its own 100 acres, it afforded us the privacy and relaxation that we needed.

  • Perfect

    Posted by Joan & Peter on 05/03/2020

    So enjoyed our precious holiday time with the family in this special home. Staying in the Dairy Annexe allowed us to escape during the day for a cup of tea away from the energetic grandchildren to recharge our batteries. Perfect!

  • Heaven...

    Posted by Marina on 17/02/2020

    Heaven. No other way to describe it!

  • Hope to return...

    Posted by Bea on 20/01/2020
