The bach was very spacious and homely. The bed was really comfy and well made with quality bedding, and the kitchen had everything I could need. I didn't unfortunately get chance to look round the farm as I was only there the one night and chose to head to Hot Water Beach, but the offer to explore was there, and Meredith let me take a spade with me to dig at the beach (dig your own hot water pool in the sand). Really enjoyable, with lovely things to do in the area.
