Stayed 2 nights in May 2012 and really enjoyed it. An authentic farm with very warm friendly hosts. Beautiful surrounding to start a hike. Caroline, the landlady, gave us a very nice welcome to the house. She also ensured that each room had cakes and milk everyday; even if we were out and coming late we would find a tray in the hallway with cakes and milk to help ourselves. The ginger and chocolate cakes were delicious, but the ginger one particularly was to die for!! Breakfast was really good too. Better to choose in advance to ensure it's prepared on time the day after but you'd have to be up at the required time for breakfast, where we also got the chance to meet nice people. Caroline gave us good recommendations where to dine in the area and neighbour town.
We chose the Yew Tree Farm based on the very good review from Trip Advisor and are pleased to have made a good choice. It's a nice retreat to be in the countryside and have a taste of farm life.
