Very peaceful location with wonderful views and a fantastic Variety of birds visiting the garden including woodpeckers. The fenced garden absolutely ideal for the dogs to run around in and the exercise field was a brilliant addition.

Just come back from a Week stay at Bartaggart farmhouse . A group of 8 of us from 11 years old and four adults . We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and the cottage was off the beaten track as expected and surrounded by beautiful countryside . The cottage itself was lovely and the hosts friendly . I would go again .

The farmhouse is an ideal location for dog owners who wants to get away from it all but others may find its isolation and the long drives too much.
