"it was a great stay in a beautiful farm with a warm welcome"
We arrive at Riscomb farm at night and Bryan was waiting for us.We found the road very narrow(that's not usual for us because in france the roads are wide) but we found the farm easily.Bryan shew us our cottage:beautiful,very clean and with a fire place(the wood was free).It's a very quiet place in a beautiful landscape with horses, goats and hens:lovely for little children.We ate eggs from the hens oft the farm .There was electric heating but we found it a little bit expensive so we used the fireplace but in februar,it was a little cold in the morning.We could go to another cottage with games(pool,tablefootball,darts...)in the evening and watch TV in the cottage.We had really a good stay.Bryan phoned for us to a riding school because we wanted a trip with horses.He was very helpfull
Just to say that by Christmas 2013 we will have installed a biomass boiler on the farm - so all the cottages will be fully central heated and have abundant hot water - all included in the cost!
