"Loved the place- a quaint old farm with nature galore!!"
We were over catching up with family in Scotland and wanted a cosy central place to invite people to and use as a base. The farm was quite simply wonderful. Our kids loved the pool table which was fab… More

"Couldn't ask for better"
Went here for a weekend away with some friends and really was better than we could have imagined. First of all the place looks superb. Huge kitchen, living room with very nice surround sound system. From the outside it looks like a proper rustic farm house which I loved but there has also been a lot of time spent equipping the property with all mod cons.
Can't really say anything bad about the place though I would warn that the road there lends itself to a land rover more than a Porsche but we managed fine with a normal car filled with 5 people plus luggage so as long as you take it slow there shouldn't be a problem.
The place is secluded enough to feel away from it all but still only a short drive from a couple of Spar type shops for when you need to restock food. And I understand Tesco isn't that far away either.
I will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family, and I'm even considering coming back sometime next year.
