Renovated in mid 2021 the property is located on the edge of the small family run horse yard, part of the working farm, and about 100 yards around the corner from our small and exclusive caravan site limited to 5 campers or less (Perfect if you want to holiday with family who have a caravan).

In front of the cottage there is a small hard standing for evening entertainment and across the drive there is a large enclosed grass picnic area.
