The location is a family run 400 acre sustainably managed working farm. The owners are happy to share their love for the land and show you how it all works - see the cows being milked and (from June) collect fresh eggs for your breakfast. Fresh air, freedom and space are here for the taking, glamping at its best, who wouldn''t enjoy sitting on the veranda with a drink watching the sunset, I did when I was there.
