We stayed in Puffin for a week, 3 & 5 year old and 2 adults. Main attraction for us was the pool and we used it a lot, it was perfect to get our youngest swimming. Table tennis and kids play area also a hit. Sauna available but we didn't get the chance to use it. Cottage was as expected,... More

We found the accommodation basic and dated. We were shown to our cottage (Buzzard) and the facilities explained but there was no literature in the cottage itself showing where things were or pool opening times etc. Wifi is advertised but we saw no evidence if this. Worst of all, following a complaint of a electrical burning smell, we were told... More

Just returned from holiday at Mettaford. wonderful quiet place, immaculately kept, friendly owners nice pool, chickens were great hit with the kids. For simple accommodation at the price of a camp site it offers outstanding value for money. I heartily recommend it. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

This place is excellent for getting away from it all. The cottages are nice and cosy with full amenities. The gardens are brilliant. Plenty of space for football and chilling out. My daughter loved the chickens! The pool and table tennis were also really good.

We had a truly lovely week at Mettaford Farm Cottages this August, so good we asked to stay for an extra weekend. We stayed in Curlew Cottage, which was spacious and functional if not luxurious. The patio area was v private and the gardens were beautiful. The hosts were helpful and friendly. Perfect for our family: the badminton court, ping... More

Just back from our second time at Mettaford Farm Cottages, the owners are so friendly and give a warm welcome. We stayed in Heron Cottage on 6th to 13th July 2013, everything was spotlessly clean, beds made on arrival and very comfortable, very spacious lounge and wonderful open garden. We took two grandchildren and if they had their way would... More

What a perfect week! The cottages were lovely, the gardens immaculate, the pool kept the children happy and Steve and Sue were the perfect hosts (unobtrusive but very helpful). We will be back next year.
