“Home from home. A lovely place to relax and explore.”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My husband and I booked a long weekend at the cottage with our three young children. The cottage is really lovely and we felt straight away very relaxed when we arrived. The boys loved feeding the chickens and also were lucky enough to meet two hand reared friendly sheep that just arrived at the farm. We also enjoyed a walk in the woods with our dogs where there is a stream to paddle in which the kids loved. Kat and Rob are both very helpful and full of local knowledge. Overall we enjoyed a fantastic weekend with trips to Beer and the Hive Cafe and despite the weekend being very wet, we all had a great time and hope to return to the cottage in the near future.

Thank you so much for your lovely review, it means a lot as we're just getting started, and lovely words like this are the best possible advert we could have.

We're so happy that the kids had a great time exploring the farm. We hope to keep building the menagerie over time as we get the smallholding more established - umming and aahing about rheas, guinea fowl and goats... will have to see what Father Christmas brings us!

We really hope to see you again next year, and we're very happy to offer a repeat booking discount of 5% per week.

Wishing you a Happy Christmas and Peaceful 2013,

Kath and Rob
