This place is absolutely stunning! I went with my parents and pup last year and it is worth every penny! They go above and beyond to give you a real luxury break. We arrived to a homemade delicious cake,fresh eggs from their own hens that you can see all walking around and treats for the dog too. The dog can run as far as the eye can see and it is all totally enclosed and the scenery will take your breath away! There is a lake at the bottom of the field where the dogs can play and you can paddle with them or you can just sit and take in the views? All I can say is you get what you pay for and this is well worth the money. The cottages themselves are beautiful and have high quality furnishings and the beds are immaculate,and so comfy so win,win. Please book and see for yourselves as you certainly will NOT be disappointed x

We have been lucky enough to stay in Tractor Barn twice this year and we absolutely loved it. We will definitely be back in 2021.

These look stunning but unfortunately me and hubby wouldn't be able to stay as hubby is allergic to dogs, we stayed in a caravan not long ago and a dog had been in before us, my hubby's eyes never stopped running, I do think it's lovely though that you make pets welcome x

Looks lovely
