Great cottage in a superb location. Hosts were very friendly and always there to help. Would recommend highly to anyone and would definitely come again.

“Amazing cottage, location and hosts!”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2020

Can't wait to figure out a time to return to Dukes Farm! We loved the location - the views, peacefulness and birds! - and what a treat being able to go on long walks straight from the cottage including up to and along Cats Back mountain ridge (see photos). Our teenagers also loved the games room and excellent Wifi. Covid restrictions and infection control measures were excellent. Many thanks to Ruth and Ken for your hospitality and for sharing this beautiful space!

“Wonderful in every sense!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2020

We were lucky enough to be able to rent the Goose Cotts for a week in August 2020. Rural, tranquil, beautiful buildings, location - everything was amazing for a get away. Wonderful welcome, friendly couple who nothing was too much trouble. They have thought of everything - well everything we could have possibly needed. Well worth a visit and would love, one day, to be able to go back again!!

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave this lovely review. We enjoyed having you here.

“Wonderful location; warm, friendly host”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2020

My family and I stayed at Dukes for my 40th birthday weekend and had a perfect, thoroughly memorable stay. Ruth is extremely friendly and very helpful and has attended to so many details, right down to hand-drawing a beautiful map of the farm and surrounding area - I intend to frame one as a memento! Both properties are extremely clean and well-appointed with fibre WiFi, too. The view from the Swallow Barn and Granary properties is breathtaking, looking out over Hatteral and Cat’s Back Ridge. We watched the sun set from the patio every evening and then picked out the stars as they appeared. I’d give Duke’s Farm six stars if I could and would not hesitate to recommend it. I hope to stay again in future.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave this great review. And mentioning the NEW fibre wifi!

“The perfect place for a celebration”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2020

I booked Dukes Farm for my 30th birthday with 14 friends in October 2019 and it was the perfect place for us. Ruth was so helpful and welcoming, all the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the communal space was great for the gathering. It felt cosy and set in a beautiful location for a home away from home. There are plenty of local walks and a great pub not too far away that was a nice escape from the rain! This will hopefully not be my first and only visit to Dukes Farm.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to leave this great review. The return to welcoming guests after lockdown has been really enjoyable!

“Excellent venue for a large gathering!”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2020

Duke's Farm was a brilliant venue for a 4 x families get-together(8 adults, 7 children and 2 dogs!). The layout of the accommodation was ideal with the barn acting as our main dining/entertaining space. The ability to have different parts of the accommodation for different folks to go off and read/watch TV/relax was a real bonus. That, coupled with the games room, to keep young and old alike entertained was, again, really good. All three properties were very well provisioned for cooking etc with more than enough crockery and glasses. Our hosts Ken and Ruth maintained the right balance of being on hand but without intruding on our holiday. It was lovely chatting with them and hearing about how the barn conversion came about and the incredible vision they had; the conversion is amazing. We all had a fantastic week and highly recommend Duke's Farm!

Owner's reply: Thanks for leaving Dukes Farm so clean & tidy, and for taking the time to leave this lovely review. Glad you had such a great time - we'd love to see you again!
