Reviews

Great propertyMr Nalin Parmar - 26th April 2018
Amazing! A real working Dairy farm, a historic home, with furnishings, and artifacts that fit the atmosphere. All was clean, in wonderful condition and a fully stocked kitchen with all that was needed. All the local pubs were friendly and inviting. Visit the nearby Castles, all very close. You will need a car to explore. The roads are narrow, but charming, Meadows dotted with sheep everywhere. Everything was great! Gail from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. - 6th November 2017
Lovely welcoming property. Ideal surroundings. Lots to see within a short drive and lots of places to eat.Group from Surrey - 28th September 2016
Magical setting.
