The cottage has been tastefully furnished and decorated to a modern standard and offers comfortable accommodation that is ideal for families. This family run farm has been in the hands of the owners for the past four generations and has all the farmyard animals you could think of including, cows, calves, sheep, lambs, horses, ponies, geese and chickens. Families are welcome to help the owner at feeding times and to collect the eggs.
