A lovely conversion in a quiet and peaceful location. Maintained to a high standard throughout and really well equipped for longer length stays. As well as the accommodation the owners also run a farm shop and cafe nearby, and have set up a farm nature trail - lovely if you do not want to go too far.

We had a fantastic stay at ducklings rest, the wonderful shop and cafe beside the cottage was truly amazing. Would defiantly recommend booking the afternoon tea. The animals round the farm are just lovely and my son (aged 6) had a fantastic time feeding them and wanted to do that every day. Owners are very friendly and on hand should any issues ariRead morese, not that we had any issues at all. We will hopefully be booking again. Hide

An immaculate property, well equipped with stunning views. Our girls loved being on the farm seeing the geese, cows, horses and tractors and the tea room in the Courtyard is very handy! Lots to explore in the local area too.

Reviewed by Anthony, 4th August 2019

The cottage was absolutely amazing, we were met by Miss Fleming who made us feel so welcome. There was stunning scenery all around and we were welcomed in with some token homemade produce. The location meant there was loads of super places to visit and was a peaceful place to return back to. We would definitely go back and will be recommending to fRead moreriends. Hide
