"Spacious, beautiful surroundings, excellent and friendly service."
Spacious and luxurious property full of character and all modern accessories eg Sky, wi-fi and Jaquzzi bath. Hazel and Chris Anderson were extremely friendly and went above and beyond any of our expectations, providing wood for the burner and even fresh farm eggs whenever requested.
The annexe is a very high quality rental property with everything you could possibly need supplied.
Beautiful countryside surrounds you on all sides with much to explore for all ages.
We were very sad to leave Woodlands farm and highly recommend a stay at the annexe.
