The Old Farm offers two holiday cottages, one that sleeps five guests and the other sleeping two to four. Named after a local cider apple, the barns were originally used for cider making and have today been converted into comfortable self-catering accommodation. Set around the old farm yard, which leads to paddocks and woodland, the cottages are located near to the owners farmhouse (just in case there are any queries). Each cottage has been carefully restored and is well equipped whilst still retaining many of the lovely original features including beams. Maintained to a high standard, the cottages offer a comfortable retreat, each with its own individual character and charm.
Clean welcoming cottages await your arrival with fresh bed linen and towels provided for your convenience and a welcome tray which will allow you to enjoy a cup of tea and home made cake. The cottages are warm and cosy with a fire in the lounge and central heating throughout (logs provided between November and March in the cottages that have a log burner).
The kitchens are well equipped and provide everything needed including a dishwasher, washing machine/dryer and microwave. Lounges have satellite television, DVD player, Hi-Fi and there is Wi-Fi internet access available.
If it's sunny you can sit outside on the enclosed patio and enjoy a barbecue. For the younger ones, there is also a play area and for the four legged family members, there is a dog walking paddock.
