Great for mountain biking, walking, and cycling on quiet tracks and
lanes, surrounded by wildlife and space to gaze, bird-watch, sketch, play, read or do nothing but dream.

The ground floor sleeps 2 (double bed) with shower room, wood-burner and well equipped kitchen.

A big barn on the farm provides bad weather play space for children as well as extra storage. BYO towels, sleeping bags/ warm bedding, pillow cases, torches and some dry kindling wood.
