Although the farm stay has a beautifull website and they are still actively working to modify the property to a optimal accommodation, the stay was nothing we could have expected. The so called cabins are sheds not much bigger than a 2p bed, a chair and a cupboard. The host wasn't clear of what he expected and he certainly didn't like a toddler on the premises. We fled the accommodation after one night and although recognizing the problem he wanted to charge us for the booked nights. Almost ruined the raglan experience.
