Golden Square Cottage has recently been converted from an old dairy. The cottage was designed to make the most of the amazing views from our hill top position. The view from the bedrooms and the large private deck are really special.

Finished to a high standard, with every detail carefully thought out. We've tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible, installing solar panels to provide hot water, using responsibly sourced wood for the windows and doors made by a local craftsman, and using eco friendly paints and finishings wherever possible.

We run a smallholding, so you are welcome to spend some time with us helping to feed the animals and collect the eggs. We can show you where to go to watch the badgers at the end of our woods, and give you books to read all about the amazing wildlife on our doorstep. Swallows nest in the barn next to the cottage, and depending on the time of year, you might be able to enjoy watching our rare breed pigs in the paddock below the orchard, or meet our friendly sheep in the field.

A BBQ is provided, along with a home made picnic bench in the orchard below the deck. Enjoy exploring our woodlands and the common land that adjoins our farm, where you can look out for the deer, badgers and owls that live there.

By walking across the field with our little flock of Shetland and Southdown sheep, you can reach a stile that leads into our woods. From there you can join up with a truly magical footpath leading down a small gully crisscrossed with pretty wooden bridges - a really idillic spot. The footpath leads down towards the Stockland turbaries, a large area of common land that has some unique habitats to explore. It's a nature loves paradise - endless opportunities for exploring, playing, climbing trees and hunting for bugs and other wildlife.
