My husband and I have just arrived home from what was an exceptional stay at Hay house Farm, feeling 100% relaxed and recharged thanks to the wonderful hosts, Adrain and Debbie, Lucy the spaniel and their array of friendly pedigree sheep and chickens!
We can't rate this place enough for the hospitality you recieve from the minute you arrive, to the luxurious rooms, foody treats waiting in your room, the beautifully cooked breakfasts which filled us up for the whole day (especially Debbies home-made vegi glamorgan sausages!), a huge field for the dogs to run about in, watching the sunset whilst in the hot-tub drinking wine each evening and the amazing attention to detail with the 'dog packs' which only a dog owner would appreciate!
We also have two dogs, one old boy and one puppy, both of whom were welcomed wholeheartedly. This was officially the puppy's 1st holiday and with that in mind, we payed extra care with introducing her to Debbies sheep and chickens which paid dividends. Debbie was so helpful with this and completely encouraged the pup meeting her animals when done responsibly.
This place really is a find which we will begrudgingly (we don't want it to get too popular!!!)recommend to all our friends and family!
Thanks so much Debbie and Adrian for a lovely restful break, and we look forward to visiting again!
