Our stay at the Farm House was one of the best holidays I have ever had. The Farm was very well equipped for twelve of us. It was nice to have the garden as we have a very large dog. We used the BBQ one evening and had a lovely relaxing time outside. We also used the pool every day and walked the dog around the grounds. Thank you for your hospitality, the holiday was very good value and worth every penny. P Ward, June 2018
