The inside of the house is clean and warm, and all newly renovated, and furnished to a comfortable standard. Outside however is an ongoing project, a continuation on our plans to renovate the farm. The old farm buildings which modern farming methods have long made redundant are currently undergoing restoration.
There is a large parking area and walkway to the house, the farmhouse has its own private garden area with patio area and log store.
Due to the nature of ongoing works and close proximity to the farm yard we are afraid that we cannot accept young children or dogs to stay in the house unless by prior agreement that they will be under strict control not to wander around the farm yard or building site.
The property is situated higher up the road from the campsite, and is totally private, no camping is available at the farmhouse.
It is situated in the midst of a working farm, so during your stay you will be able to get a taste of life on a working farm. During summer the sheep are gathered off the mountains, sheared and sorted. During the winter the cattle are housed in the sheds and then graze the mountain pastures during the summer. Spring time is lambing time so there are usually lots of lambs to be seen chasing each other round the fields.
The farmland stretches over hundreds of acres of peaceful mountainside, ideal for relaxing. Bird and wildlife watching.
Peregrines and buzzards are a common sight, as well as so many other small birds, too numerous to mention. The woodpecker is a regular in the woods, as well as owls and jays.
