We offer a family fun holiday. Our house is set in the middles of it's own 2 hectares where we keep pigs, chickens, ducks, horses, a dog and a cat! We love it when our guests help with feeding and mucking out. Your kids can collect the eggs in the morning and on a really hot day they have a huge 70sqm art barn with lots of art kit, nature detective work and eggs ready for painting.

There is loads for the kids to do here including a large paddling pool, wifi and lots of dvds for a cinema evening. We live on site and are here to make your holiday as fun, relaxing and comfortable as possible.

Hannah and Stuart live next door and they made us feel very welcome. They took our son to feed the animals on... more

A lovely warm welcome from Hannah and Stuart who were only too pleased to help out with any requests we had. The accommodation was clean and particularly well equipped and we liked the lovely firm mattress on the king sized bed - often lacking in privately owned properties. The area is very quiet, with only a local boulangerie but a... more
