We stayed a week here and it was the perfect setting for a get away from hustle and bustle. Here we could just unwind, walk straight out of the door across open fields just us and the dog. A magical place to switch off. Think it might have to be a regular thing.

We can't speak more highly of the experience we had. There was so much attention to detail to make our stay as memorable as possible, from the BBQ on our own terrace with wonderful views of sheep and hillside to the comfortable bed and thoughtful layout of our one bedroom converted barn. We were looking for a luxury pet friendly cottage that didn'tRead more compromise on quality and we found the perfect place Hide

The cottage is a very well thought out conversion of a hay barn and is bright and airy in a fantastic position. I spent many hours sitting on the patio and taking in the amazing view.
