A modern equipped cottage. Host was brilliant and even left a sponge cake as a welcome.

We had a lovely time at Bird's nest, so much so that my children (aged 4 and 7) wanted to stay on site most days and play in the lovely new playhouse and talk to the goats on site. Ginny our host was lovely and our children were able to feed the goats, calves and pig on the farm most days. The cottage itself is lovely, very clean, well equipped andRead more beautifully decorated. It has lovely proportions for a family holiday with good sized rooms for our children to play in. Hide

Absolutely fabulous immaculate cottage! We stayed for 1 week with our 3 children. The location was lovely, the children loved the playhouse and all of the animals, especially the goats. We would definitely return again. Thank you so much, and for the beautiful cake on arrival. It was much needed after our 7 hour journey!

What a wonderful property and location. We loved being on a farm and my son lived stroking the goats and playing outside. The owners made us very welcome too. Would definitely visit again

Birds nest cottage is a lovely place to take the kids. The farm animals are about all day. My 5 year old loved it.

Reviewed by Charles, 23rd December 2018

The property is in a great rural location situated in a working farm which presented a great opportunity to see the farm animals. The farm is quiet and there is only two cottages hence giving a feel of privacy and space. I definitely recommend this cottage. We were received by the lovely landlady Ginni who was ever so polite. She went through the tRead morerouble of setting the table for our Christmas eve dinner. Planning to visit again with family during summer. Hide
