    “Such a lovely place to stay.”

    The views were stunning, and the house was light, bright, warm and comfy. What's not to like? We've already booked for next year.

Barrels are supplied and all are welcome to join in! The local Emmerdale Farm Shop and Butchery as well as a tea shop is approximately a mile away.
