About the Accommodation

A stunning farmhouse which will feel like a home from home. 

The farmhouse has four bedrooms (three double rooms and a twin room) and a large open-plan lounge with two dining areas. The ground floor features a large family-style kitchen, plus toilet and shower room. The twin bedroom is also on the ground floor which makes it perfect for elderly guests.

We offer free high-speed wifi, peace, quiet and beautiful views across the surrounding countryside. Feel the crisp air in the morning and explore our surrounding walks. Relax with your feet in the stream running through our land.

In these uncertain times, we make a great effort to keep our guests and staff safe by complying to our updated health and safety procedures, cleaning protocols and policies. 

Due to the current COVID situation and government guidelines, we only accept booking from same household. Only one such group can occupy the farmhouse at one time.
