Warm welcome, beautiful fresh room overlooking fields, gorgeous bathroom with the luxury of a jacuzzi bath and bathrobes, fast broadband, delicious breakfast - what more could you ask for? Farm animals? Yes - got that too. Well worth a stay. A place to re-charge batteries.
Sat nav couldn't find the place though - it's in the middle of nowhere! Also, I couldn't pick up 3G for my phone for much of the area so we had to call Judy for directions. I'd recommend you print off instructions rather than trying to find it with satnav and iPhone!
The bed's q soft - normally I'd say wonderful but I've done my back in so the bed wasn't great for me. The soft thick carpet was a comfortable bed though! That's my problem though not the bed's so no criticism.
