“Perfect house in perfect location”
Reviewed March 30, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Beatiful house and garden. Clean comfortable and very well equipped. Very peaceful location with abundance of wildlife on doorstep. Perfect place for observing the night sky. Lovely walks all around and beautiful beaches a short drive away. Look forward to returning soon.

“Lovely peaceful holiday”
Reviewed November 19, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

There are two properties available, The Mill and The Farmhouse. As there are only two of us (and a dog) we booked The Mill. We didn't even see the upstairs bedroom which is accessed by external stairs, as the downstairs was plenty for us.

It's located in a very quiet area, only 10 minutes drive or so from a number of beaches. I understand the land is sometimes rented out to farmers but I didn't see any activity during our stay. There are a number of fields to walk through and it's in a nice setting. We actually wandered much further and ended up having one of our best walks of the trip.

There are chickens on site so take care if you have a dog - we had one little incident which thankfully came to nothing! They'll lock them away if necessary.

The house itself is lovely, a nice mix of old and new and well looked after. It's all very well equipped and we didn't have any issues at all. The log burner / stove is great and soon warms the place up but the heating is fine too. Great TV too!

Recommended if you're visiting the area.
