Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Clare's Cottage was once a cattle shed, although you wouldn't be able to tell today, except for the original exposed beams. The renovation has been carried out to a very high standard and has all the modern touches you could wish for in your holiday accommodation, including under floor heating and individual room stats.
An open plan lounge and kitchen is overflowing with charm and there is ample room for all the family. For those rainy days there is Sky TV, a selection of DVD's, books and board games. There is a wood burning stove for the chilly winter nights, when you can settle down and watch the flames flicker. French doors open out on to a sunny terrace, where seating is provided for you to enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine, whatever takes your fancy.
There are two bedrooms, one off the lounge and arranged as a twin and a double at the other end of the cottage. There is a modern wet room with a large walk in shower and heated towel rail.
The cottage is children friendly and a travel cot and highchair can be provided for your stay. Although a working farm, well behaved dogs are permitted to stay too.
The beauty of staying on a working farm is that the landscape and live stock are always changing, and the owners are more than happy when time permits to share with you new additions, whether its piglets, calves, lambs or chicks, they all make your holiday a little special!
On arrival you will be shown where you can picnic, walk and enjoy the beautiful landscape and two footpaths run through the farm, so it's perfect for a walking based holiday.
A welcome pack will be awaiting your arrival, this will be seasonal and where possible, mainly sourced from the farm.
