Stepping into the single storey barn,  kick off your boots and coats in the handy boot room, and enter through into the sociable open-plan kitchen/living/dining space, with everything you need for a home away from home stay. The kitchen area boasts an electric oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. Having a beautiful farmhouse table dominates the dining area, the perfect place to come together over a wonderful meal.

A passageway leads to three bedrooms and the family bathroom.  At the end of the corridor is the master en suite bedroom with king size bed and French doors leading onto the patio area, the en suite is equipped with a walk in shower and WC. There are two twin bedrooms each having 2 single beds. the family bathroom has a bath with shower over.

  • The property is situated on a working farm, whilst it is peaceful, some tractor noise will be heard during the harvest months, (late August to mid September and occasionally at other times, rarely before 9am and hardly ever after 10:30pm) Depending on the harvest there may be a need to run a grain dryer fan which can be noisy but thanks to triple glazing very limited noise can be heard within the property.
  • To allow the farm crops to establish, occasionally there will be bird scarers in use, typically this will be in late autumn and the spring. The bird scarers are not located near the cottage but maybe audible when walking, they do not go off at night. They are blue and orange an located on the edge of a field.
  • Guests are very welcome to walk both the public footpaths and on our field margins. Dog mess must be cleared up within the grass land where our cattle graze. (to prevent  Neospora caninum), while on the rest of the farm land please clean up after your dog if on the footpaths but otherwise your dogs are welcome to enjoy the freedom of the countryside. The very worst thing you can do is clean up after your dog using a plastic bag and throw the bag in a hedge bottom.
  • During early Spring the cattle with be very  nervous of dogs and it maybe adviseable to not walk dogs in the cattle fields for the safety of you and your pets.
  • Due to the farm animals, guests are politely requested not to let off any fireworks or Chinese lanterns 
  • Dogs and children are not permitted in the working farm yard
  • Lower occupancy rates available on request

Highly recommended for all, children to Grandparents to dogs .. as our group was. Hide
