Having looked at previous reviews on Trip Advisor we were pleased with what we had read but wondered why there had been no reviews for two years.
We needn't have worried !
We arrived on Saturday morning after a long drive and having turned off the main road into a quiet country lane we were very pleased to see this lovely old house in front of us.
Jennie welcomed us on arrival and from that moment we knew it was the right choice.
What a wonderful way to spend a weekend. Jennie was the perfect hostess and couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. Always friendly but not imposing.
The house and gardens were just what we had been looking for and ideal for spending a quiet weekend away from it all.
A few months previously we had been visiting the same area and stayed in a hotel nearby.
The hotel was less friendly, noisy and more expensive.
Pity we did not find this place earlier.
Would highly recommend the Farmhouse if you want a nice relaxing weekend in the country with friendly service and nice surroundings.
Oh, I nearly forgot the Alpacas.
How nice to see 24 of them wandering around in the field at the bottom of the garden !
