Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

This two-storey cottage has been carefully designed with contemporary décor, underfloor heating and original features throughout.

The property begins with an open-plan kitchen/diner, featuring restored wooden beams, exposed brick walls and delightful artwork. Complete with a rustic four-seater dining table and a stylish kitchen with a breakfast bar, this space is perfect for socialising and preparing delicious feasts after a day of exploring. The kitchen comprises a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a kettle, an electric hob, an oven, a coffee machine and a dishwasher.

Rearing off the kitchen, you will also have access to a utility room and WC, complete with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with a king-size bed, an en-suite with a bath and a Smart TV. The other bedroom comprises a super-king bed (which can be split into two twin beds if required), a Smart TV and an en-suite with a shower. Both bedrooms have been designed with calming colour tones and complementary patterns, making for the perfect place to relax and take in the views.

As you venture up the stairs to the first floor, you are greeted by an open-plan living space with original flooring, vaulted ceiling, rustic wooden beams and a gorgeous log burner. Settle down on the comfortable Chesterfield sofa as you immerse yourself in a movie on the Smart TV or open the Juliet balcony doors and admire the idyllic views with a glass of wine in hand.

To the rear of the cottage, there is a beautiful private garden and terrace, fully enclosed for your four-legged friends to explore. There is also a unique wood-fired hot tub, a rattan patio set and a BBQ, perfect for socialising and dining alfresco.

At the front of the property, you will have access to two designated parking spaces and a shared courtyard, which can be used by all guests staying on the farm. There is a comfortable garden furniture set, a play area and an outdoor dog wash, ideal for mucky paws after a stroll through the countryside.

Hampers: Celebrating a special occasion during your stay? There are five luxurious hampers to choose from, all containing locally sourced, freshly produced items, making the perfect accompaniment for a stay on the farm.

Outdoor Activities: From Archery to Bushcraft, unveil your adventurous side with the exciting on-site activities. A local company will bring the equipment needed to the farm so you can have your own private experience.

Private Dining: Indulge in a 3 Course Fine Dining experience or a Tasting Menu, carefully prepared by a private chef in the comfort of your cottage. Wine to accompany each course can also be arranged.
