  • Wonderful tranquil setting and house was warm & inviting

    Wonderful tranquil setting and house was warm & inviting. It was lovely waking up to the sound of birds and lambs. Jill gave us excellent directions and instructions. It was perfect for our family which consisted of Grandparents, parents and children. The configuration of rooms was great and ensuites an added bonus. Had everything we needed + more. Will definitely be back.

    Just want to say an enormous thank you to Jill and her family for opening their home to us! Your home is welcoming, so beautiful and lovely and we instantly felt at home with the fire going and your wonderful greeting! The spa pool was so enjoyed, the beds were so comfy and we felt so spoilt with the space and amenities! Jill, thank you for going above and beyond for us, we are so grateful and I will be recommending your property to everyone I know! I hope to be back! :) :)

  • We loved everything about this holiday home

    We loved everything about this holiday home. It was roomy, well appointed, had the all important comfortable beds, loads of bathrooms and was so quiet. All we could hear were the sheep and the odd cow. The hot tub was a real bonus after a day our cycling. The owner was super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to stay again.
