The location of these cottages is very pretty. Buttercup and Daisy Byre are part of a converted wing of the 17th century farmhouse and Cowslip Cottage is a converted barn positioned alongside. There is a large grassed area around the cottages which runs down to a stream. The properties are surrounded by farmland and visitors should chat to the owners to check on livestock locations etc before heading out to explore the farm.

Another significant bonus of these cottages is the flexibility. Two cottages sleep 4 people, with the third accommodating a further 6. This makes Buttercup, Daisy Byre and Cowslip Cottage the ideal choice for a holiday with the family or with friends. Buttercup Granary and Daisy Byre can each accommodate 4 visitors. Both cottages are also available to book through us.
