Accommodation was very comfortable, the shower delivered, coffee and tea in the bedroom, and a view of the cows in the fields from the... More

Attending a family wedding nearby, a group of 11 of us took over the accommodation at Shave Farm for a long weekend. It couldn't have been a more delightful experience - great accommodation and breakfasts, acres of space, hot tub and BBQ, working farm with calves arriving every day and above all charming and friendly hosts, Kate and James. We... More

(Ground floor livingroom/dining room, first floor ensuite bedroom with a double and single bed). Fresh flowers in living room together with fresh fruit bowl. Fantastic breakfast delivered by... More

Brilliant to be able to go for a nice walk in open countryside after a couple of hours in the car. Breakfast... More
