  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Old Shearer's Quarters

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Old Shearer's Quarters. It is beautifully situated in a wide green valley. You feel very close to nature there. Because of its interesting history, the building is a little quirky in its structure - the three bedrooms being interconnected. It worked OK for us.
