“A working farm which made for a great family weekend away.” 5 of 5 stars The cottage was the perfect fit for my family (3 kids, 2 adults) and my parents for a weekend away. The lay out works really well for an extended family (and I am sure would work for 2 families). It was really clean and well kitted out. My kids absolutely loved - see entire review
