Martin and I live on site with our adult daughter and 3 horses. We have lived on our small holding for 13 years and have been letting for 10 years. This particular holiday cottage has been let for 3 years, which we built in 2013 on the site of an old stable block. We are very interested in the countryside and environment, and enjoy sharing our 'special' spot with our guests. We are always on hand to assist, but once we have checked you in, you may not see us again until you depart. Taking our cue from our guests, we will either leave you in privacy, but we are always more than happy to chat too.
