We stayed in the self catering cottage after raving reviews from our friends who stayed a few months back.
Well, the cottage is excellent, spacious, there was only 2 of us but you could easily get 5/6 in there no problem. Very well presented and clean throughout and great care taken to make your stay that bit special.
It is on a working farm but we heard nothing, no early morning wake ups here, struggled to get out of those comfy beds much before lunchtime.
If your looking for a romantic get away out of the hussle and bussle this is the place!
We will deffo be back!

Stayed for 4 nights at Shave Farm and we were spoilt rotten - we stayed in the 'apartment' which had a comfy sofa, breakfast area and tv. Upstairs was a very comfy bed and modern bathroom with wonderful views of the fields where you could watch the cows from Shave Farm. 'Room service' had the best breakfast ever with choice of eggs and delicious sausages - and a good variety of cereals, fruit etc. We could not have wished for a more comfortable, relaxing, quiet, and welcoming place to stay - would highly recommend it.

Stayed here for the night as we were heading to River Cottage for the Autumn fair. This was our first B&B in the U.K and the bar has been set high. Our room was extremely spacious with everything you needed. The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up. Breakfast was outstanding with everything you needed. We will definitely stay here again

We called at Shave Farm without prior booking having followed the signs from the main road. The welcome was excellent with tea and buscuits being provided as soon as we arrived.
The farm is in a peaceful location with only the sound of cows waiting to be milked to interupt the peace.The room was comforable with a huge bed. Guests had their own lounge which was well furnished and comfortable. The excellent breakfast was also served in this room. Kate looked after us very well and as a local was able to tell where and more importantly, where not to visit.

We only stayed one night in Shave Farm but it was the best. We had the split level room in the old converted barn house and what a room. The downstairs/ lounge area is where we had our breakfast in the morning as we got room service which was a lovely touch. The bed upstairs had to be the most comfy bed ever and the en-suite bathroom was huge. The room itself had all the old beams in the room. The cooked breakfast was delicious with there own bacon and free range eggs. The owners where so friendly. Will definitely be back.

We had two nights at Shave Farm and thought it was wonderful. The bedroom was large with a very comfortable king size bed with plenty of pillows and the bathroom was good with a powerful shower. Tea and coffee making facilities were available in the room. Kate was a fantastic host who was interested in how we were going and offered tea when we arrived home from our days out sight-seeing.The guest lounge was comfortable with large sofas and a big T.V. Breakfast, which was excellent and tailored to our needs, was also served here. All in all a delightful placeto stay. Highly recommended.
