A beautiful countryside location, remote but so peaceful. The night sky, if clear, is stunning. Spacious house and gardens with lovely farm walk down to the bridge and stream. Comfortable and clean, with lovely touches.

We had a wonderful stay at Castle Farm over New Year. The cottage was the perfect set-up for our family gathering across 3 generations with plenty of bathrooms and social spaces to spend time together. It is beautifully decorated with everything you could need for a relaxing break. The location is remote, in a stunning setting looking across fieldsRead more and we thoroughly enjoyed the peace & quiet. The large boot room is ideal after a muddy walk, and a warm fire awaits in the cosy lounge. Hide
