Brilliant property in a beautiful location
We had a fantastic time staying at the lodges with plenty of room for us all and great space for us all to be together in the main house. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. With a delicious cake waiting for us on arrival! Thank you for having us to stay, this house would definitely be first on my list to come back and visit again!
Homely and well maintained
The Happy Horse Cottages were as described, very clean, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchens which comfortably accommodated our family gathering of 15 with ease. Nicky and her delightful dogs made us very welcome. The property was in a peaceful location with a large outside seating area and BBQ. Would have enjoyed a larger TV screen for the 6 x bed cottage lounge.
