We had a fabulous time at Hole Farm. The Shepherd's Hut is probably the most luxurious we've stayed in and the cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch. The surroundings are so beautiful and peaceful, and the location is great for sightseeing. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

A lovely shepherd hut in a quiet location, on a farm. Nice and clean and well equipped for a weekend. The summer house with its deck was a perfect location for watching the sunset. We were so fortunate to have wonderful weather so we were able to explore the countryside.

Well equipped cosy accommodation in a beautiful secluded spot. In a field with only the sound of cows, sheep and ducks. There is a 2 ring hob and microwave for cooking and a fridge for storage. Practical for a short stay. Do take waterproof boots as you do need at times to walk through wet grass. Be careful of the narrow wooden steps esp when wet

Had a lovely stay and it was so peaceful. The hosts were really attentive and friendly. The location was ideal for a nice relaxing holiday and wasnt too far from nice restaurants and things to do. Would 100% recommend to couples who want to get away to chill out.

This holiday home was idyllic. Setting was peaceful and beautiful. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating. So much freedom. Loved the ducks! The summer house by the lake/pond provided games, an honesty fridge for drinks and ice, logs for bbq or wood-burning stove, and there's a 9-hole putting green.
