    Lovely place to relax with family ..hope to go back in the summer months



    out of 10

    Excellent property - clean, comfortable and well equipped. Jill who looks after the property extremely nice and helpful. Location a bit rural - excellent if you want a quiet country retreat - but facilities at the house mean no need to go far and the hot tub and games room very handy - although equipment in the latter could do with a bit of up-dating. Would definitely recommend and go again.

    out of 10

    Jill was a wonderful host and extremely helpful! The cottage itself was lovely, spacious and with nothing to want for! We had a bbq in the garden, used the hot tub and swimming pool and the games room. Can’t recommend this place enough and we’re looking forward to coming back!

    Farthings was perfect for our friends and family gathering/celebration. Jill was attentive and so helpful, even received and unpacked our food delivery which arrived before we did. Wonderful cottage with so much space for the 8 of us. Loved the bbq and hot tub in the garden. Spent plenty of time in the games room with kids and really appreciated the toys for our 1 year old. Can't wait to stay again.
