    Additional amenities & feature info
    The cottage formed part of a model farm built in the 1900's. Original granite coinstones combine with simple decor to provide cosy, yet spacious accommodation where the open-plan layout is highly conducive to family holidays.

    Range cookers, open log fires, stable doors, private gardens with seating to enjoy the views. Very dog friendly too and you can even bring your own horse on holiday. Beds are solid oak with really comfortable mattresses and Egyptian cotten linen and sumptuous faux fur throws. Ideal for all the family, at any time of the year. Holwell also ideal for large family celebrations; farm sleeps total of 38.
