PERFECT FOR LARGE GROUPS by Jenna's Hens on October 8th 2017

Had an absolutely amazing Hen weekend. Hosts were superb at helping to organising everything. Loved feeding the alpacas and meeting the foal. The house is perfect for large groups and the hot tub is a wonderful late-night treat. Thanks so much

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! by Jess's Hen Weekend on August 6th 2017

We have all had a marvellous time. Shaun and Anita have been wonderful hosts, very welcoming and accommodating. Jess loved walking the Alpacas and the other animals were fab too. With thanks! Jess's Hens.

Amazing! by Lisa Hobbs, Kent on July 1st 2017

We had the most amazing weekend. Our hosts were so accommodating and happy for us to be as loud and noisy as we liked. Nothing was too much trouble and the house was absolutely perfect for us. We especially enjoyed the alpaca's peering through the window! Thanks again.

FANTASTIC WEEKEND! by Lesley on June 25th 2017

Just back from a fantastic weekend. The house was perfect. 23 of us aged 10-78 for my 50th Birthday celebrations. Everything worked out perfectly and we had a brilliant party/BBQ on the Saturday evening after a 7-mile circular walk. The Hot tub came in handy too! Hosts were great as were the Alpacas. Really hope we get a chance to come again.

GREAT ACCOMMODATION - WE LOVED IT! by Hedley on June 23rd 2017

Fab venue for a meeting up of friends from all parts of the UK. We had the best of time with 25 friends of all ages in total. Lovely comfy beds and a really lovely location. Hopefully will return.
