  • We loved what they have created, it's a fun and inspiring space...

    We loved what they have created, it's a fun and inspiring space with lots of interesting things to look at, the outdoor bath is a wonderful treat, along with all the animals, we really loved our hugs with Willis the big hearted Mastif. The location is fantastic, along with a chance to look around the land, view the treasures in their beautiful shop and sample the delights in nearby cafes, it's also not far to the beach and local walks. A perfect weekend getaway - loved every minute of it.

  • Great property to get away from the city

    Great property to get away from the city. Beautiful view of greenery and stars at night, especially from the outdoor bathtub. Also close to cafes and a beautiful beach and sand dunes. Highly recommend. :)

  • Great location if you want a country feel and also be close...

    Great location if you want a country feel and also be close to sea and city life. Accommodation was awesome. Just what we were looking for. Comfort whilst being surrounded by a few farm animals and two beautiful dogs. Having a bath outside under the stars was the best. Thanks for a lovely stay.
