Great secluded property. Plenty of fully secured outdoor space for dogs (small dogs like chihuahuas might be able to fit through gaps in main gates) Wonderful local ice cream just up the road at archers farm. Great base to go and explore the wonderful countryside and coastal areas.

The more hostel-style cottage is perfect for a smaller or bigger party. We were in four and enjoyed the space we had, the 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an extra loo and the big comfortable sofa. The kitchen is well-equipped, and John provided a starter package for breakfast - which lasted the whole week. Beds are comfortable, blankets soft and large.Read more The hotel nearby (on the same ground) has a very nice pub with great food. You will need a car. I would stay there again! Hide

We were very impressed with property from the moment we arrived. It is very suitable all ages, we ranged from 3 years to OAPs and we all loved it, the older children loved the upstairs space, the youngsters liked the room with the bunk beds.

Very spacious property with the bonus of a large attic space which was perfect for our teenagers who used it as their games area. The owner was very helpful and welcoming, even leaving us a couple of bottles of Prosecco to enjoy over our Christmas break. Although the decoration and soft furnishings are a little tired, this is reflected in the priceRead more. All in all it's a comfy country retreat and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hide
