We booked a short 2 nights stay and stayed in Hydrangea Cottage where we enjoyed and appreciated the hospitality, peace and views
Our boys loved the bunk beds, the freedom they had running around the farm visiting/patting the animals. The lads also loved the well equiped games room with snooker, table tennis, lego, videos to borrow etc.
The owners and staff were so friendly and accomodating toward us and the children. We were even able to sample some fresh eggs from liberated battery chickens.
The picnic bench 20 yards away gives breathtaking views of the sea and meadows as well as wonderful display of a star packed night sky.The whole place is so peaceful and tucked away and seems a million miles away from hectic town life which really made our short holiday seem long. If you do need entertainment it can be had within reasonable distance. The farm is also a good vantage point for going to the various beaches to inspect rock pools, enjoy sandy beaches and a splash in the sea. The whole area has many scenic views and walks.
In summary, we really enjoyed ourselves there. The only thing....it was a bit too short.
