We had such a lovely stay at School Farm Cottages, the facilities and cottages were well equipped and very clean. The children thoroughly enjoyed collecting eggs from the hens and visiting the animals. We had a wonderful afternoon fishing and visited some amazing places locally. The location is ideal for seaside visits and there is plenty to do. The hosts... More

We rented three of the four cottages, for ourselves, our daughter and family and my husband's two sisters and a brother in law. Each cottage was very well equipped, clean and very comfortable, all at an affordable price. We sat out in the garden together, and our grandson was able to run around safely, and he loved the rabbits and... More

We stayed in Bell Cottage over the bank holiday weekend with our 6 year old and 16 month old-we had a fantastic time! The cottage had everything we needed and more; it was clean, well presented and suitable for a family with a small child. The welcome biscuits, milk and tea supplies were a great touch!

This was my 3rd visit with my daughter and 2 grandsons who really enjoy the freedom of the farm. They particularly enjoy playing table tennis and snooker and collecting the eggs. My younger grandson even got up early to bottle feed the lambs. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Claire and David are very welcoming and helpful
