Our holiday in Coachman's cottage was absolutely lovely. Beautiful views and plenty of places to walk our dog (although on lead because of sheep and farm animals).

Cottage as described, lovely furnishings and period character, the estate offers both space and privacy. Extremely comfortable bed, and no light pollution at night a big plus. It is a very green and quiet place to unwind, and an excellent base for exploring the area. The free range hens are very friendly!
